I was working at a college bookstore who's name rhymes with toilet located on a community college. I am me and wizard is W.
After ringing up the transaction:
Me: alright your total is $$$
W: Cool I am paying with a card.
Me: Rock on, debit or credit (I am in a good mood).
W: Credit but it is my mom's card.
Me: Cool, but we need either the card holder or a written note from your mom plus a copy of her ID as a matter of corporate policy. I know it is stupid but my hands are tied.
W: Alright cool, I will just use my card. * palms his mom's card under his card and proceeds to swipe his mom's card in the reader while holding his card over it just slightly back
Me: * cancels transaction* Huh it didn't go through let's try that again.
Wizard repeats this have with me twice more.
Me: * leans closer to the wizard* Listen man, I respect what you are trying to do, but it isn't going to work. Do you want to put away your mom's card and try again or come back later?
W: What? What do you mean?
Me: Alright let's try this again
He pulls the same trick again and I cancel it again.
Me: Sorry man it won't go through, maybe come back later and try again and don't forget your mom or the letter plus copy of the ID.
He leaves and I go about my day of first week of the semester hell
