Swipe & get?

These days with contactless it's "tap & get". I miss the old knuckle-scraper and signing the carbons when using a credit card. I was at a petrol station a couple of weeks ago whose card machine had broken, and had to actually *sign* a slip. It was glorious!

Not sure how far I agree with you, but there is a kernel of truth there - you thought much more about spending money when there was a ceremony to it. Now it's just too easy.
