Today, I walked into a gas station and saw some $.25 gum. It looked good and I thought I'd had a quarter in my pocket. I find no change in my pocket once I get to the register, so I pull out my credit card. The cashier laughs a few seconds later. My card was declined for a piece of gum. FML

Most places won't even let you use your card for something that cheap, they have to pay a fee every time someone charges. They'd lose money.

HAHAHAHAHAHA! oh tht happens if u use a debit card!! It's a sign, don't do a lot of shopping!!!

Did you ever get the gum?

it's probably because the total was so small and not because you don't have enough money to pay for it. don't most places have a minimum three dollar total to use a credit card?

Good thing he didn't charge it and then you find out later that you actually paid $33.25...I think this is the opposite of a FML...

i work in a grocery store and i hate it when people use cards for like a piece of candy that costs a dollar or for something thats like less than five dollars. its rude and annoying. YDI.

You had no money on you at all so you HAD to use a credit card. Fail. You should at least keep $20 on you at all times...

Poor decision to use a card for $0.25. I can see why your finances are a mess.

i work at a local store that has hundreds of people a day, and i just find it to be absolutely stupid, and i hate it, when someone doesnt even carry a dollar on them. Credit cards are being used for everything now. half the time people dont even look at the price, then i ring it up, and theyre like "wow that much, ok heres my card". I ALWAYS carry at least $80 on me, and im only 15.

$80 seems unnecessary for a 15 yr old

I find this veary cute:)

don't you have to buy something for more than five dollars to use a credit card?
