the cashier then compared the signatures (the one on the slip, and the card that I had just signed).?!?!?I know, I know--this has happened to me, too. Hilarious, isn't it?But, I've also been on the other side of that register, and you'd be amazed just how programmed-in certain things become. Your body simply goes through its routine, see person sign, take slip, compare to card, OK, hand back receipt copy to customer, smile, thank you, next in line please?. Sort of like those days when you drive across town and, on reaching your destination, you don't remember the drive at all. I guess what I'm saying is, the incidents you describe don't necessarily mean the cashier is dumb (although it doesn't rule that out, either). He or she is very likely just in the Checkout Zone. :-) Marealumni of the Barnes & Noble register shift
