Now the fake smiles and annoyed chatter had disappeared and reality struck for a lot of people, they had no way to access their money, they had no way
to pay for their food. Those who unloaded their carts were completely stuck and the ones waiting in line didn't want to give up their spot to go to
the bank. People became vocal very quickly.
"There's no way the whole system can go at once!"
"What the Hell do I do now?"
"I'm not leaving without this food."
People started pointing fingers at the cashiers, THEY must have done something. When the manager tried to explain it was not the cashier's doing, the
company was to blame for making such a flawed system. Soon enough, with no knowledge of how the system actually worked, people began blaming others
for buying too many groceries in the first place. In the span of a few minutes, perfectly calm, content people turned on those around them and
eventually each other because food and money weren't immediately available to them.
About that time the manager announced that the debit and checking was back up, and the ATM unfroze and people got their money.
All of the things mentioned could have been causes for the glitch, but how the customers reacted was stunning to me. I can't say what would have
happened if the problem hadn't resolved itself, but I know that in a situation where other variables were involved such as a national crisis or mass
panic, there would have been chaos.
If people react in such a way when a small wrench is thrown into the works, what reactions would come from a multitude of things going wrong all at
once? After what I saw last night, I wouldn't want to be near a public place should the house of cards topple over, and I don't recommend anyone
planning a trip to the store that day.
Do you pay your employees by checks or debit through a bank or you pay them with hard cash?
Do you pay them after a days or a weeks end or do you pay them once or twice a month meanwhile depositing your earnings through a bank?
Why do you complain? If you don't pay them like you would 30 or 50 years ago, and if nobody is using the old methods of paying up other peoples labor
then you are a part of the slave credit system. These things will happen and you are a part of it. Break free, use the old ways.
I bet you would be reluctant to do this wouldn't you?
Everyone should be preparing to "cash out" from the slave credit system in case its going to be brought down. It is not the paying customers fault
for this behavior. These people "customers" used their time and efforts and even their own resources as labor and they did the most logical thing
they would do, they demand their money to be available when they need it.
What is wrong with demanding your own money since you have worked hard for it?
For everyone else that is taunting the phrase "People are just animals"
Well, people are not animals. Try to slave any mammal for an x amount of time and then deprive his food and let it free making it sure it understands
that you are above everything else in the world the one responsible for his food then you will see how animals really are, that is if you get out of
this process alive meanwhile. Humans can be talked out from killing someone else even in a condition of hunger and despair, animals can't and won't,
they will just use you as food. Humans in most conditions won't. So be happy and thankful that indeed we are not animals.

In fewer words, you cannot demand the labor rules Capitalism supports while at the same time you favor and use the Communist like rules of paying back
for the labor you receive from other people.
Above all, employers are the most responsible for the slave credit system, because they have to use the big brother, the bank or the state (a bank
even if it is a private one, is in most times protected and sponsored by the State as we have become witnesses in the latest economic crisis). There
is always someone stronger than you you come to for help in paying labor that you receive. Employers do not use their OWN money from their own
ventures to pay up hard cash to their employees. They just send them to the bank while they come up for better uses of the immediate cash they
received, like buying more houses or better cars.
Use the cash to do what you supposed to do. Pay the labor you receive at a labor days end and then keep what is left for you.
Don't feed the bank.
Be a capitalist all the way through and through. require no big institution to "protect" you.
ELSE DO NOT COMPLAIN!
