Folks, wouldn’t you just love to give them a swift Doc Marten up the derriere? I’m on about supermarket automated tills and automated phone machines.
Aaaarggh. Both of them drive me bonkers.
I’ve tried using self-service checkouts, but they’re far too temperamental for me.
I can’t be doing with a machine giving me instuctions, me following them, and then, if I don’t do it perfectly, the machine refusing to carry on.
Supermarkets maintain that these machines benefit us. Yeah right. Nothing to do with the millions of pounds it’s saving them in wages.
Meanwhile everyone I know who uses automated phone machines are left a gibbering wreck. All the different options, then the voice states ‘all our operators are busy’.
‘ Holding on’ using a premium rate number is costing you loadsa dosh.
