Re: Self service checkouts, bah humbug.

I refuse to use self service checkouts. It is bad enough that we have to push an ever increasing weighty trolley round, find the goods for ourselves and carry them home. I will not do the supermarket's job and scan them myself. I don't care how long the staffed queues are, I will add myself to one of the queues.

Obviously I am not qualified to advise on self service tills and nicking of articles. However, I would have thought that if I do not scan an item, I could just pick it up and (making sure I did not go too near the scanner unit) put it back in my trolley without putting it down (so not weighed).

Still, what do I know? I throw a wobbly if my printer gets a paper jam!

Re: Self service checkouts, bah humbug.

Maisie, The teller at the TSB bank used to ask if I used Internet banking, and although I lied (for a good reason) i used to reply what and do you out of a job, 2 years later the branch closed down probably due to lack of customer interactions, I often wondered if they realised what they were doing when promoting on-line banking.

Plus occasionally I would ask when they were sending anyone around to empty my computer as the slot on the front was now getting jammed up and I couldn't get any-more notes inside.

Re: Self service checkouts, bah humbug.

Re; those hand held scanners in Waitrose. We know a German woman who is very canny with those and never pays for expensive items e.g. meat. She told me how to do it but I've forgotten ! Never been caught either !
