On a whim, we headed to this lame draught night that friends of friends were spinning. I never carry cash, and only transfer money onto my debit card (from a savings account) as needed. The main issue lies in the fact that my bank account is based in EST while I’m living in MST. No big deal really, but if I transfer money after 10 pm, I have to wait until midnight, my time, for it to be processed.
I go up to the bar and ask if they take credit. Her response:
“Uh, we do, but we’re trying not to take it tonight”
Well, I don’t carry cash, I stated blankly. “Yeah, sorry” and she threw up her hands for added effect.
I tried the bank machine in vain, but it kept going out of service.
“Can I just use my card? The machine isn’t working…”
“Uh, no. Not tonight”
WTF. Since when iis it so hard to buy a fucking drink in a bar?!
I actually had to leave the bar to take out money, ridic.
