old man

Yesterday there I was at the checkout at West Brunswick Coles, trying to swipe my medicare card in the swipe, er, thing. Finally I realised it was my medicare card. 'Oh christ,' I said, 'that's my medicare card.' The woman serving (ostensibly) said, 'I didn't want to say anything...' My only response was 'It's not a test!' Then I managed to find my real ATM card. 'See,' I said to the other customers and the woman, 'same green'. That must have reassured them.

"I didn't want to say anything" !!

oh the poor frightened woman. can you guess how hard it is to process The General Public for a shift?
and they get crummy pay.

You were merely having a Seniors Moment, but her day must be a stream of total loonies.
