Am I the only person who hates self-service checkouts?
As far as I can tell they’re only there to cut the retailers’ costs.
Quite apart from the iconic ‘unexpected item in the bagging area’ they frequently:
- fail to recognise notes;
- fail to accept old fashioned money at all;
- fail to scan correctly;
- require the intervention of a human assistant
In short they don’t work as well as they should and are one of the many reasons I don’t like supermarkets.
