Dressing Down

I wore a t-shirt in public today, and threw a "Halo ODST" cap on my dome to complete the grungy ensemble. My usual crisp, professional look stayed in the closet.

I think this is the first time I've been this grubby while shopping in around two years.

It's also the first time a checker has asked not just to compare the signature on my card, but also checked TWO photo IDs (one on my Sam's Club card, one on my Driver's License) to confirm my right to pay with Howard V. Tayler's Discover card.

The moral of the story?

Dress nicely if you want to get away with stealing other people's credit cards.
