Last week Elvis Aaron Schwarz got a new credit card. He activated it and then decided to break it in by buying a notebook computer at Office Depot in Gainesville, Florida (if Gainesville has more than one Office Depot, I'm sorry you're getting picked on because the manager at the other Office Depot is a dip stick). Elvis was going to use the computer at work to put in figures when he's on a water testing site. Obviously, his employer should provide him with the tools he needs, and they should pay him decently, too, but they don't.
EAS went to the cash register with the computer and his new card. The cashier swiped the card and the screen said to request an ID. Elvis showed her his ID. Then, through some error, the screen said FRAUD.
The manager said, Yeah, he looks like a deadbeat.
Elvis told the cashier that he didn't blame her for the problem and it wasn't her fault, and then he told the manager that if he said one more word he would f&*(^%! throw him through the window. Then he said, That's my truck right there. You can see the tags. Call the police if you want.
Office Depot manager, even if you think fraud is being committed, then you can still be polite in handling it unless you know for a fact that the customer is trying to get away without paying for your crappy merchandise. After all, sometimes machines and cashiers make mistakes. And you better not ever call my honey bunny a deadbeat again.
My sweetheart gets up early every morning and works hard all day long to make sure that people like YOU, dumb manager, have safe water coming out of your faucet everyday. I don't think many people appreciate how important Elvis's job is and that besides testing the water, he gets parasites from the poopy water. He also has to deal with all sorts of things that people flush that are not intended to be flushed. He shrugs it off and says it comes with the job.
But being called a deadbeat shouldn't be part of Elvis Aaron Schwarz's life.
|Hi! I think you remember me.|
I'm Elvis Aaron Schwarz.
I'll never shop at Office Depot again.
I'll never shop at Office Depot again, either, Elvis.
Infinities of love,
