Not sure why I found this funny, but I did. And that’s enough.

My signature used to get rejected by those machines all the time, until a cashier told me the secret: they’ll usually reject any signature that doesn’t contain at least three loops (any sort of closed circle or oval) — which my signature doesn’t have.Since then I just sign with three loops, no pretense of an actual signature, and I’ve never had a problem with either a machine or a cashier.

Personally, I’m amused by the notion that Christmas, St. Valentine’s Day and Easter have tchotchkes

Oh yeah, as if ANY store waited until the third week in January to strat marketing for Valentine’s Day!

Calling the Friday Black

Marla’s supercilious attitude notwithstanding, I place most of the blame on the stores, not the customers, for creating scenarios guaranteed to create chaos. If you airdropped hundred dollar bills over Wrigley Field, and fans trample one another running down to the field to grab them, that’s on you.
