mindgarden saidThere are a few stores around here now that will take iPay and the like, and my bank has finally linked up with it. But it's not any faster than before, because all those stores make you play 20 questions with the terminal buttons that might have been touch sensitive when they were new, but no longer are.
* Do you want this to be a debit or credit transaction?
* Do you want to donate $1 to some fake charity?
* Do you want cash back so we can charge hidden fees?
* Is the amount OK, so we assume no liability if something is wrong?
* May we send you an email receipt, and flood your inbox with spam forever after?
OK, That's only five, but you usually have to hit the button four or five times for each one.
That's my pet peeve....most of the stores you shop at now want to know if you want to donate a dollar to help a toyless child, a homeless family, an ownerless dog, a vaginaless transgender, a Syrian refugee, the MDA, ALS, the NRA, the WWE and on and on and on. And if you say no you're really saying "NO! I'm a heartless prick and I'm gonna use my dollar to buy a Snickers."
