All this technology....

...that is supposed to make our lives easier really frustrates me. You can't even do your laundry today without technology interfering. These stupid money cards which have replaced quarters are meant to be more convenient, easier to carry. Big deal.

How convenient is it to load the machine and dispense the detergent only to find your card displays an error message when inserted. Now the machine must be emptied, the expensive detergent lost, and the laundry reloaded into another machine with the same results as the first.

Of course, there is no contact information printed on these cards, and to replace them from the machine that just told me I had a balance of $11.25, cost an additional $5.

Money cards more convenient than quarters? I think not, at least the quarters work.
