They had not intended to be quite so lavish but Hastings couple Wendy Schollum and Shane Simons went to town for son Josh's fifth birthday - spending just over $2300 at Subway on Friday.
The wildly overpriced meal turned out to be down to old fashioned human error after the cashier mistakenly keyed in $2325.10 for the $23 dollar spread while Simons absent-mindedly dialled in his pin.
When I first bought the cafe, I paid for a custom integration between our till and the eftpos machine. Push eftpos on the till, and the amount is sent to the eftpos machine. Tie this in with paypass, and the transaction is super quick.
Why subway, who would do a metric sht tonne of transactions a day, don't do this, my mind boggles.
