I Don’t Want a Safeway Card

If there is one thing I really can’t stand, it’s getting the hard sell for membership cards. Barnes and Noble is the worst, although the guy at Safeway last night was a close second. I was buying one thing: a bottle of ketchup. This is how it went:
“Do you have a Safeway card?”
“Would you like to sign up? It will save you money today.”
“No thanks.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes, I am sure.”
“Are you staying with any friends or do you know anyone who has a Safeway card?”
“No, it’s really ok.”
“Allright….Well, you would have saved .89 today.”

Was he joking? 89 cents? I would pay five extra dollars just to not get hassled about signing up for a stupid Safeway card. Now I won’t sign up for that stuff just on principle (and because you can see them get visibly irritated that you aren’t motivated by the prospect of saving 89 cents). It’s getting out of hand out there…
