Dan went to Hastings to rent a movie or a game....I can't remember which, irrelevant really. He went to check out and the amazingly clueless teenager ringing him up told him that his membership expired. Here's the conversation....
Clueless: This membership expired.
Dan: Ok, can I renew it? Or do I need to sign up for a new one?
Clueless: Um. No.
Clueless: Your membership is expired so you can't rent this.
Dan: I realize it's expired, how do I get one that isn't expired?
Clueless: You can't. It's expired.
Dan (can you just picture the look on his face at this point?): Uhhhhh
Clueless: *stands there and stares*
Dan: So I can't ever rent from here because it expired.
Clueless: That's right
Dan: So what you're telling me right now is that since this card that you give to customers for free expired, there is no way that I can get a new one, which means I can never ever rent from Hastings again?
Clueless: Yes, that's correct.
Dan's mind was officially blown. He started laughing and left.
He came home and told me the story and I laid on the bed and laughed my face off.
Here's what I get from this story....
#1-People are extremely stupid. wow.
#2-How on earth did that kid get a job?????? It took me three months to find a job here and I have common sense!
#3-Who trained him and why does that trainer still have a job?
#4-Dan is too nice. I would have laughed in the kids face and told him to get a supervisor.
#5-Who are his parents?
#6-Our life is hilarious.
