I drive up, pump my gas, and he pulls up just behind me. I pass him the card and take off. A few minutes later, I get a call from him on my cell phone.
Him: So, your card wouldn't work at the pump. Apparently, it's a security thing - you can't swipe it at two different pumps right in a row.
Me: Shoot, I was worried about that. Do you need me to come back, do you have your debit card?
Him: No, it's okay, I went inside and they swiped it there.
Me: Wait...it's a fraud protection thing, and you went in with a card with a woman's name on it, and they let you use it? Did they let you because the last name matched your ID?
Him: No, they didn't ask for my ID or look at the card. They just swiped it.
Now...I'm glad he got gas, but more than a little annoyed at the clerk. If a system is in place for customer protection, what the heck good is it if you aren't checking the cards or IDs? I'm debating calling the manager about it.
