D ran into a weird quirk with our local gasoline station when he brought our cars in for some gas. It was one of those automated pumps where you pay by credit card.
When it came to the second fill up, the machine rejected his card. After a few attempts he went into the station and asked what was going on.
Apparently there is some rule that you cannot use the same credit twice in one day at the same filling station.
What type of craziness is that? The fellow didn't explain further. D just used another credit card to pay.
We were trying to come up with reason why that would make sense and could not think of many. Was that supposed to help reduce fraud? I don't know.
Can you imagine if department stores enacted that rule? They would lose so much business.
That happened to me this weekend. I was at Chapters buying gift cards for my clients and realized just as I was leaving, I needed one more. Imagine my surprise if I wasn't allowed to use my credit card?
I know people who only have 1 credit card. What a crazy rule. If anyone has any idea or understanding as to why this exists, I'd like to know.
