Today, a middle-aged customer tried to pay for a $2 ice cream bar with a credit card. It was declined, so he made me swipe it again. Declined. "Quit touching the metal strip," he scowled. I held the outer edge of it and swiped. Declined. He then bitched me out as his mother paid for him. FML
shadyladyhh tells us more :
Then the mom bought him another one 15 minutes later. Sugar free ones cost a little more, so she was mad about that too.

Had a similar customer the other day. He handed me a crooked, half snapped card. Obviously it declined. After 3 tried he snatched the card off me and violently swiped it himself then bitched me out

I think that depends on how old the customer was. If we are talking about a 20yo or younger kid, than agreed. If the customer was older than that though, mom has probably done everything she can for him. Sometimes people either have to sink or swim and stop taking advantage of their parents and expecting to be bailed out.

But with him being middle aged, you're right, there's nothing more the mom can do. Unfortunately, sometimes you can do an incredible job raising your kid and do everything right and sometimes they just don't learn and don't grow up. Some people just choose to be self-entitled whiny babies that think they're better than everyone else and there's nothing anyone can do.
