I know this has been going on for a long time, but I generally shop for everything (except food) on-line. So I haven't had to deal with it for several years. I was just at Office Max looking for whiteboard on which I could draw diagrams (figures for my book). I found one I liked and headed to the register to pay for it.
The checkout guy asked "Can I have your zip code?"
What the fuck is with retail establishments asking for my zip code? I know why they want it, but it bugs the hell out of me. How much of their work do they expect me to do?
"No," I said, "you can not have my zip code. Can I have your home address?"
He wasn't happy. But I don't care. He insulted me, so he deserves it.
