I'm. Just. Speechless.
Is it something in the water, these days?
These people can't even be described as the spawn of Satan or evil. Because THEY would have better things to do with their time.
A 39-year-old woman was cautioned by police after she unleashed what officers described as a "senseless" attack on an ATM. The woman, who has not been named, was caught on CCTV approaching the device in Market Place, Chippenham, removing one of her stilettos and striking the dumb beast almost 50 times with the pointy shoe. …
I work in a bank, and the last I noticed, I had:
- no bonus
- no pay rise
- less benefits
- more responsibility (as most of my colleagues get outsourced - poorly - to India)
- more paperwork
- industry average pay
- more tax
- and finally, more hours and stress (mainly from having to integrity-check ATM's, vandalised by narrow-minded tossers who think that everyone who works at a bank is a bonus-swilling rogue trader with zero morals.
Outrageous bonus culture? Only for the privileged few...just like in every other blue chip.
A nice example of how the police and the ruling classes appear to be completely out of touch with the mood of the population and the average Joe (or Joanna) in the street.
"Futile" would be a better description but her actions are understandable - somebody has to stand up to the rise of the machines and faceless bankers that rule her world.
Those things really aren't fair on customers or staff.
There is nothing inherently wrong with self service, but they have gone well over the top with security and age checks. Sure if I buy beer somebody has to verify that I am old enough *at some point* before I pay and leave - but why does the till stop me scanning any other items while I am waiting?
Removing a carrier bag trips the weight sensor, and again everything stops until the assistant turns up.
Putting one member of staff in charge of 12 busy tills is ridiculous, and tells you all you need to know about why the reasons for these tills.
That's before you take into account the other customers who can't scan things, or have crammed 50 items into a basket, or decide to let their toddler scan the shopping when the queue is 20 deep.
So in summary, swing things slightly from security to convenience, and arrange for anyone who takes longer than 3 mins* to be automatically tasered, and they would be fine.
*Excluding time when the light is flashing of course.
as el Reg has often informed us, some 'harmless' inanimate machines are planning revolution. This looks like a pre-emptive strike (perhaps she's american).
I only counted her hitting it 10 times, so was the other 40 times before or after this, perhaps on some different footage, or is that just the way police count these days
