I hate that I can't tell what kind of processor a merchant is using when I go to make a payment. I also hate how Square sends receipts for all my purchases to my wife's email, since we have the same card number. Great way to ruin a surprise gift!

Yes incredibly dark pattern. Kind of thing everyone who worked on should be ashamed of.
