Am I the only one looking forward to the solitude promised by cashless transactions and service automation?
Some freaking peace and quiet?
Getting in the bus is usually such a quiet affair, strangers trundling somewhere in silence or muted voices. Today, two short ladies jumped on and impressively never missed a beat talking through the whole trip.
Longest 15 minutes of my life.
Then, I wandered into a salon earlier, enticed by a cheap, off-peak special. All I wanted was a quick trim, but I staggered out, half talked to death by an overly-cheerful hairdresser.
Give me a voiceless machine please.
Hours later and exhausted from errands, I went to McDonalds, with the sole reason in mind being that they had just introduced ordering kiosks. All I wanted was to sit baby in the corner (that’s myself), and eat my meal with no human interaction.
Cue overly-helpful server who came up to help talk me through every step of how to order.
After this, I’ll try once more to watch a movie by myself.
I swear if anyone tried to talk to me there or whispers one decibel too loud around me, I’ll pelt them with stale popcorn. Heck, I’ll dump the whole bucket.
