Overheard in the Quick-e-Mart

Cashier: We have a $5 minimum on card purchases.
Flibby: Ok! Then I will buy anotehr gatorade!
Cashier: $5.28, please.
Flibby: So, why is there a $5 minimum.
Cashier: There just is.
Flibby: But why? What will happen if you try to run a purchase of less than $5?
Cashier: We just have a $5 minimum.
Flibby: I understand, but why? Is it the transaction fee for running the card?
Cashier: It's just...
Flibby: Because if there's a fee, I could pay that.
Cashier: If we run less than $5 we lose money.
Flibby: Right. So, it's the fee. I could pay the fee and not have to buy more than $5.
Cashier: We have a $5...
Flibby: I'm not talking to the right person to ask these questions am I?

Common sense is a thing of the past. Don't think or ask questions, just regurgitate.
