CASHIER: Sorry, the reader's not working. You're gonna have to swipe.
Except now everywhere I go they are like oh don't use that anymore, and I'm like you told me to use this just last week! And then you go somewhere else and your like I guess they stopped using chip readers and so you swipe and they are like nooo use the chip reader and then I shoot up the store
@BigfootUnibrowMan, and all the cameras saw was a blurred unibrowed man in every frame
@BigfootUnibrowMan, You think that's irritating? Try being the guy who has to say it's a chip reader 100 times a day and hear customers b!tch about it every time.
*phantom menace fight theme begins to play*
Oh my god... I'm so sick of people whining about the chip. If that's the worst thing that happens to you today you have no problems. It will by law only be the chip reader in a couple years anyway so fvcking get used to it you whiny babies!!!!
@Dephenistrator, is it going to be law? I don't think. It just a big push from credit card companies. I'm a database guy at a big bank. I got to lunch at the cafeteria and I always swipe even though I have a chip and the machines are chip capable. I think the financial industry lost interest.
@DoctaLlama, i looked it up, i was partially wrong. They passed legislation to to make companies jump through more hoops to still support the slide, and considered making it law directly but did not. We are behind other nations converting away from the easily stealable slide.
@DoctaLlama, even all that aside, you should hear these people, mostly in their 50s, just whine and bitch about it. Like it offended their gods that it's even there to see. I add them to my list of categories of annoying customers. I get bored at work.
@Dephenistrator, I just get tickled myself cause I'll go in one store and swipe and it tells me I need to use the chip. I go to another store and use the chip and it tells me to slide. I'm half laughing and half annoyed.
First world problems
I don't even tell people to use the chip reader anymore. I just let the customers figure out themselves #walmartemployeestruggles
When the card reader moans but you just inserted the chip
But you don't swipe a chip card, and even if they don't have a non-chip card reader that's bogus
Just a little tip, you can put the chip in at the beginning of the transaction, and you don't have to wait as long.
As a cashier. I can tell you that I am the one making this face. Not the customers
