“I don’t even know how to use my own debit card anymore. Tap it? Swipe it? Bop it? Twist it?”

Credit cards and debit cards used to be swiped, but now can also be inserted or tapped. It can be confusing.

so apparently the correct answer to “how do i pay with my card” IS NOT “you can tap it, insert it, swipe it.. bop it, twist it, or pull it”

When you realize the game “Bop It” was just conditioning us to use credit cards… Insert it, Swipe it, Tap it 😅

So I end up in front of cashiers like playing the original bop it game all over their payment device for like 15 minutes everytime I need to but one thing.
Bop it, swipe it, twist it, insert it, swipe it 4 times, never mind—tap it, bop it, tap it, wave it, twist it.
