“I hate when the debit/credit card reader at the checkout asks if the amount is okay”

"I hate when the debit/credit card reader at the checkout asks if the amount is okay? No. It’s not. I want all this crap for a dollar” is a jocular saying that has been printed on several images and was popularized by this ecard from February 2, 2013.

“I love checking out at the store when the card reader asks if the ‘amount is okay’. Where’s the ‘no, but that’s what it costs’ button?” was posted on Twitter on May 22, 2011.

I love checking out at the store when the card reader asks if the “amount is okay”. Where’s the “no, but that’s what it costs” button?

I’m always amused when the debit card machine asks if the amount is ok. What if I say no, do I get to change the price?

When a debit card machine asks if the amount is OK, I’m always tempted to press “No.” Expensive crap.

When I am paying for something and the credit card machine asks if the amount is ok, can I say no? #nodough

The pads where you run your own debit card at the grocery & it asks if the amount is OK, What happens if you say no? Price negotiations? :p

Whenever I swipe my debit/credit card and it asks if the amount is ok, I have to say yes, but like no it’s not, I’m broke…
