Shopping trends of swipe machines

Posted by sani pilani on July 22nd, 2019

“Rendering the exact change has always been trouble” speaks out my beauty parlour aunty. It sounded more like a reminder message to all the other ladies who were getting their services done while the trouble creator waved the Rs. 2000 new denomination in the air with her perfectly done French Manicure.

“Aunty get yourself a card swipe machine! It’s easy and hassle-free.” I say flinching in pain while Sunita waxes my arms! 

“It’s a long process,” she replies, while still fidgeting at the cash register.

“It isn’t! trust me.” I say with the little energy left.

Sunita waxes my arms harder this time.

She didn’t quite seem happy with my idea!

But is this not the case? We have all been in this soup sometime or the other and have at most times let go of the change.

But not anymore!
