By I hate Walmart???? - United States - Greensboro
Today, I went to the self-checkout line at Walmart. When I tried to pay, the cash wouldn't go in, so I stood there trying to cram money into the thing that's supposed to take your money. What I didn't realize was that there was a sign up top that said: "No Cash. Cards Only." FML

This reminds how at work we have.4.self check out lines but they open at 7am. Every single day there's always that one person who ignores the close signs and tries scanning their items in the morning and ask why its not working

#3, I'm pretty sure the machine still had a place for cash as well as cards, but isn't accepting them for some reason. Thus the sign saying "this machine will only take cards" even though it still has a cash slot.

#17, that would be correct. These things break down all the time, not that they're fragile but they do get a lot of use and wear out, as all mechanical devices do.

I have a screen reading program called Jaws, it isn't the best, but it does read the screen.
In this case, I used the app, with voice over.
I do not own a braille keybord, but I do know braille. Blind people can use a regular keyboard to, in fact, we are typically very fast typists, because we cannot see the keyboard, to rely on our eyesight.

What PC is this? Most screen reading technology costs about a Thousand dollars or so. Also, most blind people have no challenge using a regular keyboard.

Always double check for signs before going up to the machine - just in case exactly this happens and you look like a fool! It happens though, you just gotta keep your head high and pretend it never happened lol

I get this on a daily basis at Safeway. Our self-checkouts are not yet programmed to take the new Canadian $5 and $10 bills and we have signage posted at every one to that effect. No one reads it, and plenty of people bitch me out when I point it out to them. The story really should read:

"Today, I was working as the self-checkout operator at Walmart. Yet again, a stupid customer couldn't read the big signage saying that cash wasn't working and I got bitched at for his stupidity. FML."

Not just Walmart. In the shop I work in, when one of the self-service breaks and only takes cards. Even when you tell someone before they use it, the machine tells them too. A lot still try to use cash.
