I Remember When They Promised Me the Future

I remember when they promised me the future, and told me how one day I could just grab an item at the supermarket, swipe my card, and be quickly on my way. They never mentioned how I would have to choose options from six different touch-screen menus (including if I wanted to donate to the charity of the week), and then answer three more questions from the cashier (including if I wanted to donate to the same charity of the week). The elderly ladies who pay cash using exact change get through the checkout line faster.
