I walk in
I order what I want
I hand my CSP to the girl at the register
Girl looks at the card and the slides it
Girl then tells me "omg this card is different, I have never seen one like it"
I'm like "Yeah"
Girl tells me "how long have you had this card for?"
Me "some time now"
She looks at me all smiley and giggly
Then she tells me "it just feels different when i slide it not like thr other ones"
Im like "i bet it does"
She looks up at me and laughs..
Some of the places I shop on the regular noticed when I got mine. Basically because it's heavy, but partially because the card number is on the back and they were like "swipe this way, or that way?" Personally, I dropped the envelope pulling it out of my mailbox and was like "dang, they're not joking that it feels different...like a ton of BRICKS!"
Unfortunately, the places I'd *like* to know that I'm not a bum don't see the card until I've done my business. I'm in technology (sort of), so my day-to-day work attire isn't extremely high-end (no one sees me sitting at my desk writing code and doing math)...I just don't need to wear my finest threads to impress my iced-tea maker...or my friends after work. It's not overwhelmingly common, but I have occasionally gotten attitude at higher-end restaurants which turned into gracious smiles and a visit from the manager to confirm that my experience was "pleasurable, and hopefully frequent" (no joke, that's been said to me) once I presented the card to pay. It's not like I show up in sweats and flip-flops, but, apparently, at some places, cheap flats and Loft threads are enough to peg you as "not really qualified to eat here."
