"it has to be signed for credit."
some of you may remember a previous episode that i had with a doood (drawn out for emphasis) earlier this year. read about it and then come on back. from the time that i signed it then, seeing as how my plastic gets used on a rather frequent basis, my signature had worn off the back of the card.
i don't understand the whole "signing in front of" thought process. i mean, true, it is a good idea. the signature does help against fraudulent charges and other such things. but, c'mon, if i sign the back of my card in your presence, of course the signatures are going to match. that's why people are supposed to check your identification. to make sure you are who you are. one of my cards has my picture on the back so that i don't have to sign it. but i've been told that i have to. "why?" i ask. my picture is on the card.
