More and more stores are offering the self-checkout lanes, am I the only one who doesn’t like it? These days we are responsible for finding our own items anyway. The other day I was at a department store picking up something and thought about an ingredient that I needed for dinner and thought I would look in the limited food area, I didn’t find it nor did I see anyone who worked for the store to help. I finally flagged down someone who told me that they didn’t know. I ended up making a special trip to the grocery store to buy. Btw at neither place did I use the self-checkout register, and if offered I use the lines where bagging is offered at the grocery store. Here’s the thing, you can’t carry on conversations with the automated cashier, well you can but people look at you weirdly. Plus, I feel if I am going to be checking myself out I should be eligible for the employee discount, and finally think of the jobs that it is taking away.
