oh, look, Neiman Marcus has finally decided to join the rest of the world by accepting Mastercards and Visas. well, it’s about time, isn’t it?
i’m always a little irritated by these stubborn businesses that only accept American Express or cash or some other inconvenient form of payment. i mean, seriously. do you want my business or not? once, i had to go to NM about a week before my wedding (last minute makeup run — total emergency!), and i had to write out a check and show all these IDs and stuff because i didn’t have an AmEx. and then when i tried to return one of the items a couple weeks later, it was this huge, time-consuming process where i had to go to three different counters and talk to five different employees and i was eventually paid back in cash — nickels, pennies, and all.
