Since I have used Google Wallet, 95% of the time I get a reaction from the cashier or people around me. Most are in total shock to see a phone pay for something. Post your experiences in this thread!

Todays Google Wallet experience:
Cashier: "Do you have a CVS card?"
Me: "No" - I then pull out my phone and pay
Cashier: "Whoa...that is the future"
Me: :D
Cashier: "Is that an app you download?"
Me: "Yeah, but its only for a few phones"
Cashier: "Can I use it on my iPhone?"
Me: :D....."Nope."

Once I went into a CVS and paid using Google Wallet. I put the phone down on the pad and once the screen said "Sent" the cashier remarks, "That was dope" and continued about his business.

Japan and other parts of Asia have been doing NFC style payments via phone for the last 6-8 years. We're just finally catching up :)

Used mine for the first time today finally. Didn't get any reactions except my own delight lol. No sliding my card in and out of my wallet, no handing it back and forth with the cashier and waiting, just *beep* and "here's your receipt"! Sounds ridiculous but once you actually do it, it's pretty awesome :D

Used it at 7-11 and the Indian guy said what is that. I told him what it was and how it works he said that's amazing I said yes it's the future it's here. I then continued to take my bag of chips and my Slurpie and left

Haha great thread. Have they ironed out the bug that some people were having that messed up Google wallet and the only fix was a new device? I have been waiting to install till that happened. Also, do you still get free money from Google when you first activate it?

yeah, they fixed it yesterday by confirming your account with a password. i have the CDMA nexus and installed wallet w/ an apk originally before rooting. got the free $10 from Google, bought a pack of gum, then unlocked/rooted, flashed a rom and wallet no longer would recognize my prepaid card. got back my $8.13 as of yesterday

The guy at my local gas station argued with me saying I didn't pay, he kept saying you can't do that. Then the receipt printed out. He looked dead at me and told me I was going to jail because I ripped him off somehow. Had to explain it to him while customers waited in line. It was funny as hell.

The first time I used it, it didn't work but probably because some fatass was crowding me at McDonald's and I could hardly reach the terminal.

Second time, it did work but the old lady manager tried to convince me that it hadn't worked and it's not possible...as my receipt was printing. Then I had to explain that I wasn't some mad scientist hacker stealing all there money and i just wanted a damn milkshake because I had a sore throat.

Third time, they didn't say a word.

Wish I had someone ask me if their iPhone could do it. I would just laugh my ass off and walk out. Silly iPhone users.

This is mine:

Me: Ding.
SexyNexy: Sending...Sent. Ask the seller if this transaction was successfully processed. (Or something similar).
Me: Uh...did it work?
Cashier: Huh?
Me: One second.
SexyNexy: Sending....Sent. Ask the seller if this transaction was successfully processed.
Cashier: What are you doing?
Me: Oh screw it. Here *hands cash/debit card*.

I've only had it work once.
