There is a gas station/convenience mart/Subway counter/Dunkin Donut combo store not far from me. About a month ago they began asking for a date of birth when the customer uses a debit or credit card. The register is programmed to require the entry before processing payment. Huh - pretty odd and being a slightly argumentative sort of broad, I challenge their right to require that information. The cashier (they're all about 15 y/o) is no help so I get the manager who says it's a corporate requirement. Now I usually stop at that station a couple times a week usually after a 12 hr day and I'm a little too tired to argue so I change my birthdate every time I stop. Once I told them it was 09/29/1900 but the girl wouldn't enter it so I said it was really 09/29/1915 - that she believed - small consolation ! ! ! Today I gave them 09/29/1985 and they never questioned it - must have been that facial I game myself last night. It's gotten to be a game for me. How much can I push the limit, or, how stupid can they be, or, how intelligent are they to recognize the stupidity of the requirement. It's the only gas station within 15 miles so I put up with it and have my fun.
