Calculator in Context

Spotted at a newly opened supermarket: this old man taking out his phone in order to check his bill amount on the handy calculator While people are quite enthusiastic shopping in westernized retail spaces, the trust level in the technology based billing process doesn't quite match the mutual trust one keeps with shop keepers from local grocery stores (where the bill is often inexistent, scribbled on an old newspaper or verbally reported to the next day / end of the week).
