Or why has it taken me so long to figure this out.

I’m no longer in a hurry to get anywhere or do anything.

I never use the self checkout lines at the library or super market.  The chance for human interaction always takes precedence over the need for speed.

I no longer make a right turn on red unless there is someone behind me making ugly faces urging me to go.

The parking garage no longer has real people or fake people at the exits so I have to trust the kiosk to accuartely read my ticket, bill me for the appropriate time and then I pay via credit card.

I was at the bank.  The roving teller, you know with the i pad asks me why I’m there.

I say I want to deposit a check.  i Pad person says you can take a picture of the check make the deposit on your phone.  I say no thanks and patiently wait in line.

Me and the teller chat about the weather, about the weekend coming up and about the holidays.

Rule of thumb – If you can talk to a person versus using a machine for goods or services always go with the person.
