yes how annoying, they are just eating your time up over their paranoia, let it cost them their job.
Just spoke with the manager. She said they have had people use stolen credit cards and this is why they do not allow it. I asked if they allow people to buy computers with the credit cards and she said, yes, with 2 forms of ID. I have 7 forms of ID with me, why can I not buy the gift cards. She has to call the district manager. Said the ASSistant was wrong in all his information, but he is new. Hmmm, okay. Great training tool.
