WTF are people doing that takes them so long to withdraw 10.00 bucks? My total time is about 1 minute from card insert to receipt rip. Yet, people are there for minutes typing away. Thoughts?

Ok I think you answered your own question because ATM machines only give out denominations fo $20 bills so the system his hanging up for 10min when they request $10 :idea::dontknow:

There is a lot of times I'm sitting behind someone wondering if this is their first time seeing an ATM. And some ATM's allow $10 denominations.

I think I can do 10.00 at my bank. Let me go to the local ATM.
It's been awhile now since Urban went to the bank I guess he's taking a long time too. :lol:

Its no different than someone pulling up to McDonalds and not knowing. I thought at first it was nice that my grocery store put in self check outs, then I realized that people are generally idiots.

It's even worse with self-checkout lines at the grocery store.

Some people just have trouble with technology ... my dad (86 yrs old) is one example. It doesn't help that his vision isn't what it used to be. Anything with technology freaks him out. Payment machines at restaurants get him every time. "What do I do now?" ... umm, the machine is asking you how much tip you want to give, so answer the question.

He goes into the bank, rather than using the ATM. He goes to the cashier, not the self-checkout line. He goes to a full-serve filling station (somehow he managed to find one! I don't even recall the last time I've seen such a thing) rather than using pay at the pump. And so on ...

Then there's the post office ...

My business is pretty much a one man show (me) and I ship packages all the time, so I'm in the post office every day. Jeeeeeezzzzz what a waste of time.

I know exactly what I want, the credit card is in my hand, I drop the package on the scale and hand the clerk the credit card - in and out. But the general public ...

Village idiot: "I need to send this."
Clerk: "What service would you like to use?"
VI: "With regular mail, how long will it take?" (by the way, there is a sign right behind the clerk that explains how long each service typically takes)
C: "3 or 4 days."
VI: "That's too long. What about express?"
C: "It'll be there before 10 AM tomorrow."
VI: "How much does it cost?"
C: "For this package - $27.80."
VI: "That's too much."
C: "Then we can use ExpressPost - it'll be there tomorrow before 5 pm. $10.80."
VI: "But I need it there tomorrow morning" - uh oh, here we go ...

And this is followed by an endless loop of "costs too much" and "takes too long" ...
