.....taking VISA because of their employee harassment from you.
3. I would kick you in the balls.
PS - There is nothing wrong with asking for ID. Ever hear of charge backs?
You do realize I don't work for Visa right? But you guys feel free to isolate yourselves on no CC island because I'm asking you to follow the merchant agreement you signed, but I'm the @ss right?
I'm okay with this. Cabbies do it all the time. If you want to run the store as cash only while I am in there, that's better than you trying to charge me a min. purchase "fee".

Charging by credit is a privilege, not a right. There's no law that requires him to let you pay by card.
And of course visa is going to say it's wrong to charge a minimum. They want to make money on every $1 transaction.
Just to clarify I don't work for VISA guyz...I just tell merchants I do to get them to comply. Same way I told a parking company I was a reporter for the ATL newspaper to get my boot removal fee refunded.
