Get Over It

Posted on Thu, May 1, 2014 at 2:00 PM

To the customers who become irate and/or rude about debit fees: The simplest solution to your outrage is not to use your debit. I work at a store and hear the same remarks every day, the most prevalent being, "So you're telling me I have to pay to use my card and spend money here?" Well, that's actually not what's happening. Crazy as it is, you don't have to do anything. You can use cash, credit or utilize your free will and go to any number of stores in the immediate area. You can probably do this without making your cashier miserable, even voice a complaint without being rude. No one is forcing you to use your card and go through with the transaction—you are asked if you would like to accept the fee and it is not hidden, and if you don't like your options you can buy your cigarettes, pizza, gum, etc. at many other locations. It's not that hard to get, people. -Burnt Out
