I was at the grocery store yesterday when it hit me – I could work there. I could walk in, throw on an apron and run the cash register TODAY – without training.
I know EXACTLY how to deal with a barcode that won’t scan – I know how to deal with an item that won’t fit in the bagging area – and I’ve even memorized product codes for items like bananas (it’s 4011 by the way).
I cannot remember the last time I had a cashier ring up my groceries.
I think ALL registers should be self-checkout. It drives me nuts when there is 35 registers but only two open. Make every one of them self-check out. They’re just collecting dust!
So – Self Checkout…Yes or No? Do you like to hang back and let the cashier do their thang? OR do you prefer scanning your own groceries?
