From the “Did she really just say that?” department:
Cashier at McDonald’s drive-thru after Lyle handed her a debit card– “Do you want me to run this as a credit card… or what’s your PIN number?” (Have you ever had someone ask what your PIN number is before? That was first for us. Needless to say, Lyle told her to run it as a credit.)

Cashier at Wal-Mart to Lyle after checking out– “Have a happy Moth… weekend!” (Nice save! LOL!)
