Robotic checkouts no match for service with a smile
I have a confession to make – I firmly believe that self-service checkouts are the devil's work. Having attempted to use them many times, I have always, without fail, ended up in a blind rage, frantically waving some item or other around under the scanner while a robotic voice shrieks 'problem in the bagging area'.
Unless you have one item with an enormous barcode, don't bother going to the self-service checkout, because I can assure you, no good will come of it and you'll end up with extremely high blood pressure.
Not only will you be personally frustrated but you will also have a long line of people behind you, rolling their eyes and huffing as you try to reason with a metal box.
