I went to a "convenience" store today. I added the quotes because it wasn't so much convenient as it was dumb. The lady swiped my card. I typed in my secret special pin number, and it didn't print a receipt. So instead of just becoming frustrated and saying "well, i'll make things convenient for you and let you go", she called someone who could work the machine and they had to drive all the way to the store so get the receipt printer to work. I ended up just paying for it a second time and was long gone by the time she got there. at least i think i was long gone. I don't really know when she got there. Anyway, i was proud of myself for not doing anything rational like reaching over the counter and strangling her. Yeah for me.
