Can I See Some ID?
I really hate having to show my ID when I buy something with a credit card. Not all the time, like if I am buying something that is over $500. I think it makes sense for the store to check it out. That is not when I am usually asked for ID though...in fact the past couple large purchases I had, I know for a fact one did not. When I am asked for identification it is always when I am buying something small. Why yes, I did just steal this credit card and thought I would splurge on this $8 container of kitty litter. Woot! Or yes, I want to make the most of my stolen credit card - that is why I am only buying items on 75% off clearance with a total of $22. It is so annoying. I would rather never have my ID checked than go through that BS, the only reason I am using it in that situation is because I don't have any cash on me at the moment.
I know some of you are probably thinking "They are just trying to protect you." First, that is a bunch of bullshit. They may be trying to protect themselves but they are definitely not trying to protect me. Secondly, I never asked them to protect me. I don't write "see ID" instead of my signature. I just want them to take my damn card with as little hassle as possible. Finally, I don't care if they are trying to protect me. I've had my credit card info stolen a couple times and although annoying it wasn't too bad getting it all straightened out. I am just not that worried about it.
