So this restaurant lets its staff tease and ridicule in this situation? After being treated like that, I'd be talking to the manager about making the meal free. It's embarrassing enough to get declined; the staff were just being dicks.

He might not even have no balance. I once tried to pay for something that was £10 when I had over £200 in my account. My card wouldn't work, and I had to borrow money from a friend.

Yea there's actually a bunch of reasons why your card might not work. They shut mine off without notifying me because of the whole Target Scam that happened. I went to buy lunch at school and my card wouldn't go through.

I agree that you should always check but sometime it will get denied for no reason. where I work it happen a lot and half the time it our machines. I have one lady who come in all the time if she swipes her card it gets denied but if we type in her number it works.

Sometimes, if you make multiple purchases after making a large one, the fraud detection alert will occur and your card will be denied until you call the credit card company.

Cards can fail on you in so many ways even if your balance is plentiful. My favorite one is if I make two separate purchases that are the same amount the second won't go through. Gets me every time.

For some reason, I've noticed Sarcasm doesn't go over well on here. I guess it just goes to show how many people don't always understand it. I thought your Kanye comment was pretty true and funny. He makes a ton of hilariously uneducated comments and he thinks he's brilliant.

Agreed. I work in a grocery store and see people whose cards get declined or who forgot their wallets and can't pay multiple times a day. I would never laugh or embarrass them because aside from being unprofessional it would also be rude and unfair because these things happen to everyone at some point. I highly doubt that none of those servers ever got declined for something. (And yes, I know it's different in a restaurant, but still, no need to be assholes)
