The Cash Register
And in blah blogger thoughts on this day. Whatever happened to those good old fashioned check out registers, ringing, pull the hand lever with those numbers that roll around in those windows on the top of them like those lottery number windows, cast iron steel cash registers of the past. It seems like the shopping, buying and selling transactions that I encounter in those merchant stores these days and times all involve those computerized and digitalized cash registers that seem to break down on a daily basis, to where I keep hearing sales clerks say things like "The computers not working", or "The server is down", or "You can't purchase this item because the computer is not working", or "Please wait til I reboot the cash register so that you can purchase that item", or "The credit card machine is not working", or some other phrase to where it seems like I can't even shop anymore. And it could be the age of the rfid tag barcode, save no man that he may buy or sell except that he have the mark of the beast globalism conspiracy thing, maybe. What's that all about in these high tech technology all things electronic buy and sell days?
