Digital meter confusion

Is the city ever going to fix the read-outs on the digital parking meters? Once one has made payment and the receipt-request read-out appears on the screen the [OK] is on the left for wanting a receipt with the [Cancel] on the right for not needing a receipt.

Yet, on the actual meter the “cancel” button is on the left while the “OK “is on the right. They are reversed.

I walk to and from work each day down Brand Boulevard and I see people wanting a receipt pressing cancel and people not needing a receipt pressing OK and the meter dispensing a receipt (causing litter, not to mention an ecological waste) because of the confusing display versus physical buttons.
