Today, I went to the grocery store. My checker was very hot. When it came time for me to pay, I swiped my debit card and the machine kept rejecting it. Sure that I had money in my account, I did it again, before the cute checker informed me that I was swiping my driver's license, not my debit. FML

Lol that happens often actually. I sometimes don't pay full attention to what cards I'm taking out or using either.

My dad once was using the library printer which required him to swipe his library card and took out a train ticket and tried to swipe that, numerous times, as people behind us gave him weird looks.

or he's and idiot. or an easily distracted idiot.

plus, OP, i totally thought you were gonna go with "that's when she said it, looked me dead in the face n asked 'cash or credit?' and i jizzed in my pants!!" kudos on trying to pay with your license tho, still embarrassing.

truly epic fail. not only did your 'first!!!!!!' get buried, but you were 6th. now you have 2(more?) reasons to kill yourself. not only was your empty life not validated at all by being first since you were, in fact, 6th, but you were also given the thumbs down. so go do it. now.

That's such bullshit. That's not how a debit/credit card machine works. It wouldn't go through the process to reject it; it would simply be unresponsive to a driver's license and keep telling you to swipe again.

#1! Man I've always wanted to say that. And maybe if you would actually try to act smart by paying attention and thinking "okay, I really want to impress this guy so let's try not to screw this up" this wouldn't happen to you and all the others that post strories similar to this.
