This Sunday we had to make a 30 mile round trip to retrieve a debit card that we had left in the Morrisons supermarket the previous day. We were so engrossed with packing the shopping, collecting the receipts and saying bye that somehow we forgot the card in the payment machine. The process for collecting the card on Sunday was very easy – because the error is so frequent the staff all know the procedures, and have a dedicated folder for cards that are left behind!

I thought we had figured this one out?! I am sure in some shops the receipts aren’t printed until the card has been retrieved from the machine. This means that the checkout process cannot continue and end unless the person has retrieved their card. This is called a forcing function or behaviour-shaping constraint in interaction design i.e. the way the system is designed means that you are forced to do something if you want to continue. Similarly, a cash machine will not give you your cash unless you first retrieve your card from it, this is so cards are not forgotten in the machine. This wasn’t what happened in the Morrisons I was in and so they have lots of errors.
