For some reason Google gets me two different descriptions depending on the search term. I don't know how to fix this, the website is running wordpress cms.

Search Term 1:

QUOTE
Providing the best point of sale, scale, cash register and time attendance solutions.


QUOTE
Providing the best point of sale, scale, cash register and time attendance solutions. ... [link removed] ... There are many different thermal receipt printers that work with many different point of sale systems.


Why? Please help.

That's standard for Google. They'll probably use your meta description if it's relevant to the query. If it isn't, they may grab some text off the page itself. It looks like in your case they used the meta description but then added some on-page content. I'm guessing the second query was something like [thermal receipt printers] or [point of sale systems].
