So I go to use one of these self service machines to pay for my shopping and I make the mistake of inserting my card the wrong way round.
The screen flashes “PAYMENT NOT RECOGNISED, PLEASE SEEK ASSISTANCE” accompanied by the voice of the machine screaming: “ PLEASE SELECT A PAYMENT OPTION OR PAY IN CASH”.
I press whatever options I can see on the screen but the voice and the words continue, non-stop.
By the time someone comes over to help, I’ve melted in a puddle of nervous convulsive sweat.
Next time I shall queue patiently at a staffed till.

Bloggie friends!! Please be reassured that I’ve been very good with renewing my library book apart from that one time where I had to pay 30p in late renewal charges! Ahem!
