Why do some women think they won't be charged in stores?

I’m sick of standing in checkout queues behind women who are surprised when the checkout chick (or checkout cock, or whatever you call the spotty male variety) announces the tab total.

This is a signal to start the hunt for the handbag, which by now is below the shopping bags in the trolley. Then the hunt in the handbag for the purse. Then the hunt in the purse for the EXACT money: “I know I’ve got a 5 cent piece here somewhere” as she feels behind the torn lining of the purse, while the rest of the queue looks daggers at her. It’s not there, so now we start checking all the pockets in our clothing, and then back to the handbag – like anyone could find anything as small as 5 cent piece amongst all that junk! Then the handbag’s torn lining has to be searched behind. Then we don’t have enough money, so we start the whole sorry process again looking for the credit card..

Is there a cure for this odd behaviour, apart from shoving my shopping trolley fair up her fat arse?

That'd probably be right. The Australian banks are the world's best at getting at your money from all angles. They charge for having accounts, for using them too much, and for not using them enough. Don't let them into your country!
