The Damned Autopay Machine

Hey everyone! How's Tuesday so far?

Sorry today's post got delayed yet again. Busy schedule had landed me in unpredictable situations and my body clock has officially gone out of whack.

I hate autopay machines for parking sometimes. When it was first introduced I was intimidated by the entire concept of a machine handling your parking ticket payments. Yes I am that old that I used to experience paying for my parking ticket to a guy behind the counter.

Yes and I was that stupid as well.

Many years have gone past and now autopay machines is the absolute norm whenever you visit a shopping center or a building. Now there is one thing I hate about them machines.

It is this.

And I am pretty sure a lot of people go through this damn dilemma.
It was like winning at a jackpot machine. Only except you lose.
I'm pretty certain you read parts of the comic in the autopay machine voice.

The other thing I hate about this machine is that when there is a long line of people behind you and you have to move at 1000 kilometres per hour and each time the machine rejects your stupid note you feel like punching a baby because it is not your fault that the machine doesn't like your money and that stops you from proceeding any further and people are getting annoyed behind you.

Even more infuriating is if you get stuck behind a person who doesn't seem to know how to operate the machine and that person takes forever trying to figure it out and gets angry when you try to help.

It's diabolical.

I just hate autopay machines.

What's your autopay machine story?

Have a great week ahead!

  3. A lot of machines give change in notes now though. Truth be told, it's a hassle to get like even five or six Ringgit in coins. Can't imagine RM48...

    1. yeah. coins are annoying because picking them up is absolutely awkward because you have to bend forward for the longest time to the demise of the person lining up behind you

  5. The bad news for me is that this happened once. The good news is that it wasn't an autopay machine. It was a vending machine.

  23. at the very least bro~
    ....an atm machine didnt eat your card.

  24. AHAHA. I totally read that in an autopay-machine voice! xD And it irks me that it pronounces "ringgit" as "ri-ngit" instead of "ring-git" (or maybe it's just the autopay machine in my place) >.<

    My experience was when the new bank notes were introduced (the plastic ones) and the machine couldn't really process them. Had to frantically search for a paper note and felt so PAISEH for holding up the line T.T

  25. Remember last time when RM1 coin no longer useable? My friend went for the machine after movie and insert RM10 notes on the last day night.. guess what... the changes is all in RM1 coins... and is already midnight...
