Ok, so I work at Radioshack, and at Radioshack we, at least the store I work at, make a point to check IDs and signatures on credit transactions if there's a picture on the card or not.
Now onto the story.
An older gentleman came in, looking for an car adapter for his CD player. He had the CD player with him, so I looked at the voltage and amperage on it, blah blah blah, got his adapter, everything was going good. Then we got to the register, and did all that, then we got to the payment part.
Me: "Can I please see your card and take a glance at your ID?" (the system prompts for it, and the last four digits on the card)
Him: *points at the picture on the card*
Me: "I need to see an alternate form of ID, to verify the name."
Him: "I've gone all over the world with this card any no one asks for that!"
Me: "I'm sorry sir but I just need to verify the name."
Him: *pulls out ANOTHER credit card, without a picture on it.*
Me: "Do you happen to have something with a picture on it also? Like a drivers license or military ID?"
At this point, I still had his card, and glanced at the back, to find no signature, well since we also verify signatures I needed something with the same name and one on it, AKA a driver's license.
Him: "My picture is right there on it!"
Me: "Well, I also need something with a signature sir."
Him: "No you don't."
Me: "I need something to verify the signatures since you don't have it signed."
Him: "You don't need to do that! You don't need it signed!"
At this point I was pretty annoyed so I stopped trying to be polite.
Me: *points at the back of the card* " 'Card not valid unless signed' "
Him: "Call Bank of America they'll tell you they don't require that!"
Me: "But it says on the back; 'Card not valid unless signed' "
Him: "I'll call them then!"
He then proceeds to pull out his phone and starts calling him, this continues on until he just walks out of the store.
As he leaves the store he looks back, glaring at us, the fact that he probably saw me laughing didn't make matters any better, I was half expecting him to come right back in when he saw me laughing.
I just don't understand people like that, it's really stupid, in the time you took to sit there and complain about our policy, you could have just pulled out your card and got it done with, and got the item you wanted. Now you have to go somewhere else and hope the employees are competent enough to get you what you need. Hopefully though, where ever he went they weren't, and they blew up his CD player.
