I seriously almost flipped my lid last night! It was grocery night and I took Vegan boy with me to pick out some food that he could/would eat. We were at our local produce store picking out some great stuff! We had loaded our cart to the top with wonderful looking fresh fruits and veggies! Everything was good. And then we got to the checkout. All my groceries were scanned and bagged. We had a long line of people behind us. My debit card would not scan. The check out boy said that the last three cards wouldn't scan and his neighbor checker was also having problems scanning cards. Soon, neighbor checkers machine accepted one card, so he tried to scan my card over there. Still, nothing. He then said, "There must be something wrong with your card!", implying that I didn't have money in my account to pay for the items! I explained that there was plenty in there, and he said there was nothing he could do. I asked if I could write a check? NO!
By this time all the people in line behind me were really bugged! Of course, there was no manager I could talk to. So I did the "really mature" thing and slammed my cart of produce into the wall on my way out! I know, kind of childish, but I felt better, dang it! Vegan boy was quite amused. I then went to Trader Joes and Walmart where my card worked just fine!
I now have to go back to get the veggies today! I'll pop a Valium and hit the ATM before I go this time!
