Taking A Swipe At Technology

| Working | January 20, 2015

(I have made a take-away order over the phone and have come in to pay for it.)

Cashier: “Cash or card tonight?”

Me: “Card, please.”

(I had over my EFTPOS card, which the cashier swipes for me. ‘BAD SWIPE – SWIPE AGAIN’ appears on the screen.)

Cashier: “Oh, come on, that was so not a bad swipe!”

Me: “Sounds like you’ve been having a bad night?”

Cashier: “You have no idea. This machine and I do not get along at all. I can never get it to do ANYTHING I need it to do. I hate it!”

(I laugh and we continue with the transaction.)

Cashier: “Would you like a receipt with that?”

Me: “No, thanks.”

Cashier: “Yeah, I wouldn’t want anything it had to offer me either if I were you.”
