A minor one, more funny than SS, but I was going "huh?" inside. My store processes checks electronically, so the customer gets it back. So there really isn't any need to write it out. But i don't tell customers that since every now and then it won't process electronically, and we ahve to keep it, and deposit it, and it does need to have all the necesary info filled in.
had a customer the other night pay with a check. Some people still aren't aware they get them back, so I always mention it. Well, you would have thought I asked her to kick a puppy! She said "OH NO, if I'd known that, I wouldn't have filled it out, what a waste of a check!!!!!' Um ok, if you say so. Then she said it again. And a third time. All I could do was apologize, but really? She also commented on how she could have used it again had she simply given me a blank check (no, because even if its not filled in, we still put it through and its franked). Plus I'm pretty sure you can't use the same check number twice, although I could be wrong. She finally left but really? Such a teeny thing to make a fuss over.
