*fingers crossed*  i’ve had isses with some women up at PO before.  They drive me nuts.  Got pissy that my credit card said “SEE ID” on it and didn’t have a signature.  Wouldn’t accept payment until I signed it in front of her.  good grief, I worked in a bank for THREE years, I think that showing ID (which have a signature on them) it just fine!

ugh.  mini-separate rant over. =)

People that work at the Post Office deal with so many personalities, that after a while they are numb by everyone, and sort of give everyone the same attifude.

Sort of like the DMV, they are tired of seeing person after person, and just hate it.

Dont worry about your invitations, At the end of the day its her job, and the reason she asked you what was in it, was just for safety reasons. 

I know that being a Bride, our senses are so heigthened, and we stress about everything.

Rest assure my dear that everything will turn out okay 🙂

@M.Ruder: Your credit card isn’t valid until signed, and “See ID” is not a signature, regardless of your signature appearing on your ID.

@staying_ms_shaw:  Worked in a fed institution for 3 years, if that were the case, there’d be sufficient training in such. 

 

Meaning, that in all the years I’ve been trained in finances, and generally living, the fact that only one person has ever said anything about it means that an ID is an acceptable use of signature.  The fact that she had me sign it in front of her means nothing.  Should someone be fraudulently using my card, there’s no protection in that.

Just googled “see id” and found that you do have to sign it, according to the credit card company rules, and that the post office is one of the more strict enforcers of this policy.  Hmmm…mine says “see id” and I’ve used it at my post office without any issues, they just ask to see some id and I show my drivers license.

@eyegirl:  but you can literally put an X and that can qualify as a signature.  I’m just saying that anything can be written on the back and be used as a signature.

I’ve never understood why signing a card “magically” validates it – an ID is so much better than a signature for making sure it is not stolen. Some rules just don’t make sense.
