A couple of  years ago I had forgotten my credit card and was far from home.

The cashier was amazed, I was pretty surprised too, but I played it off cool. I rarely use it though...

 
Jan-Mar there's a 5% kickback for using ApplePay and NFC coupled with your Chase Freedom card. (The benefit to the Freedom changes quarterly)
I used it for everything while on vacation in January and will get a nice points kickback, at least $75 worth.

I'm now going to use my wife's Freedom and ApplePay to get a HomePod. If I calculate right that'll be nearly 2K points for a purchase I was going to make anyway. Then I turn the points into trips that I don't have to pay for...

We pay-wave up to $100 without entering a PIN. The trouble comes when I make a bigger purchase and have to remember the number.

My coffee-shop sells travel cups with a chip so you just have to wave your cup.

Retail credit card readers. Why are there a half-dozen different software configurations for the damn things?

 
Swipe or insert? Which side does the card have to be? Which end goes in? Is that the the OK button there? Do i touch the screen or the keypad?

What am i buying, i forget now.

Just got off the phone with Ebay support. In the 30+ minutes i was on the phone, the person at the other end hardly spoke a word. Weirdest support call i've ever made with any company.

Having to listen to hear the Top 40 pop radio station at work. It's the only station we can get in the building. You can listen to that station for 3 hours and never hear a guitar. {#Rolleyes}
