She checked out first, and when she went to pay I was a little shocked to see her pull out her phone to use Apple Pay.At the time I had not set it up on my phone and was impressed that she had. I made a comment about how she might be more tech savvy than me about mobile payments, which is funny since I work in the FinTech industry. She told me when she paid with Apple Pay the previous week, the 20-something cashier had remarked, “I’m impressed!
