At lunch, I stood in line behind a youngish-looking university student as she paid for her $1.00 can of pop. I have yet to understand why people drink diet pop (or even regular pop for that mater).
I considered that topic for a moment and was then stunned as I watched her pay for her purchase. After tax, she was looking at a massive $1.13 bill. Out came the debit card.
Seriously? She used a debit card to pay for $1.13! I never use any kind of plastic if it's under $10. I bet her transaction fee was 50 cents. For a brief moment, I considered paying for her drink, but that feeling of chivalry (or whatever it was) passed quickly.
This was on my way back from checking out some lingering sales. I am in a clothing crisis and really need to add to my wardrobe in a bad way. I am not done yet, though I picked up two shirts and two pairs of pants.
