A good rule of thumb is to never let your credit cards leave your sight.
One of the things that make me cringe is paying at restaurants. Most of the time, a waitress will come to the table and mention that she can take your card and process your payment. I don’t let her do that. I politely mention that I will take my card up to the register when I am ready to pay.
Often, I do get a funny look. And I don’t mean to insult the staff. I just think it is a good habit to have because you never know when your card could end up in the wrong hands.
So, what do you think ?
