(Our registers are prone to messing up, glitching, or just straight up disconnecting from the network. Needless to say, this frustrates everybody but, as someone with bipolar disorder, I tend to get more frustrated than others. I like to fight my anger with sarcasm. Here’s some of the stuff I’ve said to/about the machine.)

Me: *gently smacks the card reader* “Just a love tap!”

Me: “Jesus Christ… this thing needs an exorcism!”

Me: *to a customer* “It’s like this thing is sentient and it hates me the most.”

Me: “Screw this! This is how the war against the machines starts!”

Me: *to a regular* “Well, since the register doesn’t even want to take your order, pull on around and maybe seeing you will make it work.”
