I went to buy a lousy $100 bookcase. I went to pay for it with my credit card, a credit card which has $0 liability for fraudulent claims. I did not bring any ID as my friend drove.
They refused to take my credit card because I did not bring ID and told me that this was for my protection. This is a lie. This is their policy and it has nothing to do with protecting me.
As for the lousy bookcase, I do not deal with liars.
