Chip and Pin and "How is my service"?

I don't know how widespread this new phenomenone is, but I have recently noticed down at the local Co-Op that the chip and pin machine is asking me questions. It want's to know "how was my service?" "was I served fast?"

I would like to know, it this just something that is happening in my local Co-Op? Have you noticed it Co-Ops near you? Or is it even limited to Co-Op stores, is it found in other stores with chip and pin?

So next time you are at the shop and when the customer in front of you leaves finishes being served, have a look at the chip and pin machine and see if it asks you anything?
And for those who dont believe me I'll try and get a photo of the chip and pin machine next time I am being served.

Oh in that case I am going to claim I don't believe you, just so you have to take a photo of the machine and get funny looks from other customers! LOL :)

There's no co-ops near me, but I've certainly never heard of this crazyness. I would certainly but "no" as my answer, as my service would be slowed by being asked questions about the quality of my service.

Clear as mud?

Is that really true? How do you answer the question?

"How is my service?" "3,2,3,5,6,5,Enter"...
I'm not so sure that would tell them anything

James - you just press a button on one side for yes, and the other side for no... you don't get much choice!

I've never noticed it and I both shop at Co-op and chip/ pin every transaction I make.

I went to a co op the other day and paid by card but didn't get a 'how am I' thing. What I did get were some rancid dips. bleurgh
