Yes. It varies from shop to shop rather the card should face left or right. The ones that are flat so the top side is up are easy.

Occasionally. On most of 'em, the strip faces down, but now and then I'll get one where the strip is supposed to face up, so I end up swiping about 3 times before the clerk tells me I'm an idiot.

Yes because they have different machines at different places and some you don't even use yourself so I never know whether to give them my card or use it myself and I have to look at the little picture to know which direction to swipe it.

They don't all swipe that way.

This is easy, it always swipes in the direction of the nearest sale.

Yes, I've made maybe half of my attempts the wrong way.

Sadly, yes. It's always different in every store it seems. I feel so stupid when the cashier has to explain how it works.

Haha, me too. Especially because you can tell the cashier has to tell people that all the time and it bugs them.

No, it's pretty simple. There a little picture for you to follow on the card reader...just look at it.

Yeah, it seems to be different in most stores and some of them I cant even see the picture so I end up doing it the wrong way.
