Electronically Challenged People

ECP for short.  These are the folks who cannot operate a simple device within the allotted time.

ATM: After waiting for 5 minutes you just want to say “Hey! Give me your card, what is your code?  How much money do you want?”.  Either that or there should be a time limit of 60 seconds.  After that, the machine takes your card forever.

Microwaves:  Popcorn, covering, right time

VCR/DVD: How hard is it? It’s one thing if you’re lazy, quite another if you just can’t figure it out.


Any more?

    There are people who cannot order from the same menu at McDonalds in 2 minutes. Oh, I am talking about me.

    Self check-in kiosks at airports.
    Turnstiles on the metro.

    This is not really ECP but how about those folks who do 3 separate orders in the drive thru at McDonalds.

    i’m commenting an incredibly long time after this was posted, but i can’t sleep so I’m reading archives. these people drive me insane! i no longer deposit my paychecks at the atm (as i am self-employed and receive my pay electronically) but when i did, i could deposit my check into checking, get cash out, and check my savings balance in well under two minutes. waiting behind someone who takes 7 minutes to get money bugs me.

    and self-checkout is just impossible for most people, it seems. but then, i bet they’re the same people who think cashiers are somehow beneath them.
