I had an akward experience while Christmas shopping the other day. I was in line at a convienance(sp?) store and I noticed my good friend was in line right next to me. I saw her kids first and she was talking to the cashier, so I talked to the kids then tapped her on the arm to say hi, how are you. She seemed bothered and I was confused because she is normally so nice...long story short, I realized her credit card was being declined and the cashier was running it thru numerous times! She quickly left and I said 'ill see you!' She said 'ya, ill see you'. She was understandably embarrassed. Now I feel like a dumb ass because my brain didn't quite put together that she was in an akward position. Not until after she left did I understand what had fully happened and how I kept yacking away, not realizing what she was doing. I wish I had offered to lend her my credit card or something! So now what do I do? She doesn't text, or I wd have already sent a quick 'sorry' and dropped it. I know she doesn't want to rehash an embarassing moment yet I don't want her to think I'm cold or just left her to squirm. I haven't talked to her yet since...Help!!!!
