Shopping at IKEA...self-checkout.

I choose Credit (using my Chase card to get reward points).

On the credit card reader its says, "Save 1 percent by using Debit." There are two options, Debit, or Cancel.

I choose Debit, then I put my debit card through the reader. It rejects it. Mmmm.

I realize that maybe it thought my Credit card could also do debit and wanted me to use the credit card's security code. I guess.

I hit cancel and try again.

I select credit.

The one percent offer comes up with the choices of Debit or Cancel.

I don't want either...I want Continue.

I raise my hand to attract the Help Lady, and she comes over and hits Cancel...which allows the transaction to Continue.

Then she smiles at me and says, oh yeah, a lot of people have that problem.

What problem? Logic? Is logic now a disease? I guess so.
