Chip & Pin

Maybe it's just me, but since the introduction of chip & pin, I don't think I interact with shop assistants so much.

I suppose it must have been that with cash transactions or the old signatures, there was the whole thing of items being passed back and forwards between you. Now you just stick your card in the slot type in some numbers and nothing need change hands the whole time.

Is this just me or do other people find the same thing?
