They tried that crap here in Missouri. I and many others just left and went somewhere else. Finally they just printed up throw away menus on printer paper and the problem was solved. I have friends and relatives that don't even have a phone of any kind. I love them the most.

Whenever my hubby and I go out to eat, he refuses to use QR code to order, refuses to use those payments centers they place on the tables (they very seldom print a receipt) and if there are open tables near a window (that’s where he likes to sit) and the host says there is no server at those window tables we leave. Restaurants that are half empty shouldn’t be so picky. Most places accommodate but sometimes you do get the obstinate control freak host. We tip well for personal service and enjoy the interaction with a friendly, knowledgeable staff. Technology is a pain sometimes😂

Raheem, in Georgia, our "votes" are converted to an unreadable, unscanable QR code that voters aren't even allowed to photograph for our records. F-ing Dominion.

I’m in Tennessee. Someone I know suggested that voters receive a receipt for their vote that could, by law, be verified via public audit. Makes sense to me. So they’ll never do it.

It’s the same thing here in a big blue county in Texas. I work elections, and I personally think it’s shady as hell.

I also would just ask for a menu! We r on our phones enough (as I’m typing this), so taking a break for me and reading a menu is key!!

I never use the QR Codes. I always ask for a menu. I am 58. Too much electronics /TVs in restaurants. In my opinion.

A client today asked for a QR code on a piece I am designing.. She said she was sad that dynamic QR codes cost money… she wanted to change the outcome on the fly. I sad, “What? Like the election??” - she didn’t like that… libs!

The absolute most annoying 21st century gimmick. Takes all the pleasure out of hovering over the menu and getting a full picture of the choices:

Scrolling instead on the telephone is a challenge.

Brilliant. yesterday walked passed a Manhattan Cafe that strives to force all patrons to download menus. The place was packed with patrons reading from paper menus.

palaver an unnecessary or complex procedure, I almost always learn a new word every time I read one of Rhaheem's posts!!!

Can we talk about “no cash” businesses next? Every new, “hip” business in Texas has a sign that says “cashless business” on the door nowadays. No thank you.

I hate QR menu codes. When you ask for a menu as in a paper menu, you're automatically relegated to the dinosaur class of obsoleteness and those QR pushes, just despise you for being so...... ancient.

As a dinosaur I own it. Worked hard for a good retirement and I am the customer. Don’t intimidate easily, don’t pay for bad service and never wait in line to give someone your money.🫣

I've left restaurants that was me to order using a QR code.
