why?

i want to know why a person feels it necessary to pay for their whopper value meal with a credit/debit card and hold up the line at the drive thru?????

THIS is how you celebrate nablopomo???

Listen--perhaps the card was a GIFT card, not a debit or credit at all. Perhaps someone's little niece or nephew had a birthday, and the auntie left shopping till too late, and sent the poor kid a lame gift card to Mickey D's, and the kid wanted to get a Happy Meal with the latest trademarked plastic crap from China, and the kid's mom argued over it, and then when they got to the pay window the kid dropped the little red gift card down the crack between the seats, and THAT's what held up the line.

Not because they noticed you back there, fuming, and paid REAL SLOW on purpose to needle you.

As long as you're making up stuff to get grouchy about, you may as well make up a GOOD story.

I always pay with a card, (but i don't eat at BK so it wasn't me) because it's easier. I've found people with cash take longer... I've never been held up in line due to a card, BUT i have been due to completely slow service...

Because they can, my dear. Because they can. The world will be ruled by credit/debit cards one day and there will be no more paper money. I suppose we ought to get used to it, but honestly, I liked it better when cash was the rule, not the exception.

Wow. Probably because they don't carry around cash. And probably because McD's accepts plastic now. But I'm thinking the slowness had nothing to do with paying by credit/debit.

Listen wonderful SIL, I paid for my BK last night with a card and I can tell you that it took less time than if the dude had to count endless change b/c they charge you (with tax) like $9.01...and I'd obviously give him a $20. You are so bitter. But I still love you.

Points baby, points... and i too think my card (which doesn't generally require a signature under a certain amount)... is a lot less time consuming than the attendant making correct change...

Because, silly, some people get direct deposit and it's much easier to go cashless than to keep paying ATM fees!
