Swedish mystery no II Posted by jennie on Aug 30, 2010 in Culture
Moving on quickly from yummy pizza salads to something less edible but equally confusing. Swedish ATM’s (bankomat), or more specifically, the way you insert your card in a Swedish ATM. Oddly enough, up there this in done upside down (uppochner), with the magnetic strip up as seen on the picture if you look closely. Why why why? This confuses me immensely. Never ever have I done this anywhere else in the world – or have I just not been to the right places? Is there anyone else out there who’s also flipping the card over? Or is this yet another odd Swedish-ism? Please help me out here.
Remember when in Sweden, this side up!
