    Walked into Taco Bell today for a snack. I checked out the register just to see what kind of card reader they used. I rarely use credit cards for anything, but I have been using Samsung Pay during the beta. I'm hoping debit cards can be used, so I thought I'd try it out. Anyway....made my order. bill was $7...I waved my phone at the nice lady and she said, oh no sir, that will not work. I said, can I try....she said...go ahead sir, know your socks off. I did the stuff and the first pass there was no reaction...she said..told you....then the register blinked and beeped as it registered the transaction. The girl screamed ...Oh My God....you should see what he did !!!! I take a couple of steps back and hold up my hands...Look !! He did it !! It worked!! She was really carrying on...ALL the employees came running to the counter to 'see what I did'....1 young man, holding a knife said....'what you do'...Paid my bill....Then, and ONLY then, after everyone was there and I was fearing for my life, did she say...he paid his bill with his phone.. The manager said, you know Apple Pay doesn't work here. I know I replied and if I had an Apple Pay device I would not have tried. So how did you pay with out an Apple....I was scratching my head at this point wondering how this guy was in charge of stuff....I explained, this is Samsung Pay...it read the scanner differently...will work almost everywhere. He asks..where won't it work....my order was ready and I was hungry...but I told him ....it won't work in any place that absolutely requires a card insertion....Oh really.....

    I left, but kept under the speed limit the entire way home....just in case.

    And that's how Samsung Pay also cost me my life......

    Oh wow, that's an awesome story...I can't stop giggling to myself, lol

    I wouldn't be surprised if a few more people have a similar type of experience...I think a lot of people who aren't tech savvy just aren't going to understand how that's possible without the physical card swipe. (at places that aren't technically set up for mobile pay that is)

    HE'S A WITCH...BURN HIM AT THE STAKE!!!

    Lol.............Now, that's a story. Still annoys the heck outta me when I just about every day have to tell cashiers that this is not an iPhone nor is it Apple pay. Really grinds my gears!! Oh, and I love Taco Bell, so you know I'm gonna try it tomorrow.

    I know I am going to have to get used to that, but I kind of already am. I have a Moto 360 (until I upgrade to the Gear S2) and pretty much everyone who notices it asks the same exact question: "Oooh, is that the Apple Watch?" No, no it is not......
    Only 3 people have actually recognized it as a Moto 360......2 had Moto 360's of their own, and the other guy actually had an Apple watch....

    That's a nice story.....lol. I wish I could surprise some people. Unfortunately, where I live they just yawn. No one cares. If they ask about it, they ask in reference to pay security n' protection. Unless there's a huge tragedy, it's not a big deal here.


    EDITED UPDATE:

    Man!.....today I went to a new sub place that just opened this week. I purchase two subs and when I went to pay for them, the young lady said; Oh! We don't do that here, I don't think our pay system is up-to-date. She asked her boss and he said; No...it won't work. That's Apple Pay right? I said, "no it's not it's something different, It should work." I was patient and sure enough...."BEEP".... the receipt shot out instantly. The young lady said, Wow! I guess you taught me something. I learned something new. here's your subs sir. Wow, I was wrong, you taught me something today. I said, thank you have a nice day. I may not have almost been arrested, but I liked the doubt from the lady. That was interesting. I look forward to surprising more people....lol.

    I'm enjoying people reactions to Samsung Pay too. The girl at the gas station yelled out, "What'd you just do? That was awesome." I could hear her carrying on about it to the other workers as I walked out of the store.

    I had another experience at the hardware store. When I took out my phone the guy was like, "No we don't... Oh!" The transaction had gone through before he could finish his sentence. The only glitch I ran into was that the hardware store register required the clerk to enter the last 4-digits of my card. I had to click around in Samsung pay until I found the last 4-digits of my digital card. I found the digits and the transaction went through.

    There was an update yesterday and it seems that they took care of that by showing the last 4 digits of your virtual number besides the real one.

    Exaggeration...only a little. The girl at the register did scream, she did yell out, she really carried on. I did step back with my hands raised. The entire staff of taco bell came up to the front and there was a kid with a knife...he was chopping something. The time from the first scream until every thing was over....felt like hours....the reality was, it only was the time it took to make 2 burrito Supreme, hold the onions....So what...2 minutes, maybe, after everyone came and investigated. If there was a Police officer there, I'm sure I would have been, 'restricted for my own safety' while they figured out what she was screaming about...

    Like the NFL announcers calling the Microsoft Surface an iPad. Like those two have anything in common.
