Can cashiers please wait more than .2 seconds after seeing me swipe my debit card before saying (in an exhausted tone), "Other way"?
I know it's the other way! I can see nothing's happening! It's not like I'm going to continue to swipe it one way until the card catches on fire and I break down weeping, hand bloodied.
There aren't a lot of options! It's only going to be one other way! I'm not going to try to fold it in half and push it through the screen!
Insert emoticon for frustrated screams!
