I went to the dry-cleaners this morning to pick up David's pants. I explained the receipt was lost, apologized and gave our last name.
The clerk asked if I was on the account (I've never been asked this before) and said no.
She told me David would have to pick up the pants.
I explained that wouldn't work.
She went to talk to the manager.
When she returned, I learned why picking up dry-cleaning requires a background check...a woman had come in a few weeks ago to pick up her husband's dry-cleaning.
However, they were separated. (The dry-cleaner didn't know this.)
The wife burned all of his clothes.
My name has now been added to the account.
