The term, "life is abundant in the universe" is relative. Just because life proliferates throughout the universe is no reason to believe that it is easy to find. My entire point is that faster than light travel is a travel technology. Knowing where intelligent life resides in the universe or the variables to reliably find it is an information technology. You are making the assumption that because a race has reached a certain technological level in a certain field that they have reached a completely different technological level for a completely different technological field.
I'm just saying that there is no given that just because you can do X, that means you can now do Y as well.

Their spoken English had an accent I couldn't identify
What did they say to you and what did you hear them say?
Could they have been from another country and not sure what you asked, maybe not understand the currency. The cards would be a tourist type of buy...still it does sound extremely strange and i would not write off your instincts or interpretation.
When they came in the shop I greeted them with my usual "howdy, If I can help you, please let me know" they said thank you and the lady asked if I was the owner of the store and I said "yes mam" in my usual affable Texan drawl.

The Universe might well be electric...and so might some of the species out there too!
