So i went home (England) recently. First thing i noticed is you can now order your own meals in MacDonalds using these giant tablet things they have around the store. They even deliver them to your seat!
Then i realised how easy it is to use self service checkouts. Why don’t we have them here in Taiwan?
My gf commented that you miss out on human interaction by using them. But there is no human interaction here anyway. Nobody ever has a conversation or an out of the ordinary comment.
and the whole time i was there i was using contactless to pay for pretty much everything. I got some money out a couple of times and managed to keep the change under control. In Taiwan i literally have a box full of 1ntd coins because i use cash for everything.
What is this madness? I thought asia was the future. But since i have got back to taiwan all i can think of is how dated a lot of things here are and look…
