    4 morons, lots of waiting. Give me a checker any day.

    I use the self checkout a Lowe’s all the time, works great. But the local grocery store is different. Place the item on the scale “This item has the wrong weight” something like that. Didn’t matter if you gently placed the item, or “dropped” it on there. Buzzzz. Very frustrating. I’ve heard they have fixed them, but they taught me never to use them.

    As a former cashier/grocery worker, I try not to use the self check out as that is 2,4 or 6 jobs no longer available. And that’s not including the teenagers as baggers. There are times that the self check out is the only option like between 10pm and 7 am, those times I try and make the on duty do it for me.

    I don’t use the self checkout ever for the same reason as Monkeyhead. If the on duty won’t do it for me I put the items down and walk out.

    If there are four self-checkouts and one person on a register, 95% of the time, the person will get you done faster.

    Too many of us old folks hosed their system.

    That’s when you just go to a cashier. I look for the self-checkout lane with the people with the smallest number of items in their baskets and switch lines as soon as I see someone trying to read all the prompts on the screen. ;-)

    As a grocery store cashier, I can sympathize with Betty & Bub here. Sometimes the tills are just funny, but so many people are brain-dead that it’s almost constant work for the attendant (hint: When weighing your produce, don’t be holding a single apple up to look at the code, then dump the whole lot in the bag- it will set off the scale alarm because the one you were holding didn’t get weighed). Never mind the people who go into a blind panic when they put their from-home bag on the scale and can’t follow the instructions.

    I don’t want to use self serve check outs. Last time I used BC Ferries, I had a choice – the self serve wicket or the live person who I could talk to and ask questions. I choose the live person.

    I’m not going to scan, weigh and bag my stuff.

    I would agree, but most times the “checker” is worse than the idiot “trying” to use the self check.
