I was at a cashpoint at Canary Wharf today. I went there specifically, because there's a cashpoint there where you can get USD and it's easier than bothering to leave time at Heathrow or faff around at the airport at the other end. I just wanted a bit of cash to get me from the airport to the hotel when I get to Seattle.
Anyway, that's not the point. The point is that the cashpoint was referring to itself as "I". When did that start to happen? "Please wait whilst I am counting your money". It really said that on the screen.
I mean it's one thing that people attribute human emotions and thoughts to animals, but a cashpoint? It's bad enough that Innocent Smoothies say "I contain twenty bananas" or whatever but I can do without a cashpoint referring to itself in the first person.
