I've just realised that the people here who refuse to use them are like the old people when I was a kid who still went to the cashier in the bank every time instead of going to the ATM.
Incidentally, after the ATM came out, cashier jobs didn't decrease and actually continued to rise. The reason was that it was now cheaper to operate a bank (you needed fewer cashiers per branch) so they opened more of them. It's not actually guaranteed that a new piece of technology will replace jobs, nor is it guaranteed that they won't, of course. They will probably make it cheaper to have more Tesco Metro style shops, for example, so we might see more of those smaller shops opening.
When someone adopts a smug attitude whilst bragging (bragging ffs) "Never bin in t'Trafford Centre, it's a fuckin' nightmare", there is simply no point in asking how he knows if he's never been. From a derelict site to thousands of jobs is a good swap in my book.
