I was shopping at 2am at a Neighborhood Market.  I picked out more than I planned and had half a cart's worth of items.  I went to the front and there were no checkers.  This wasn't a concern because other times this late someone had stopped stocking and checked me out.  I stood at the front for about 2 minutes before a manager walked past. 

"May I help you?" 
"Yeah, I'm ready to check out."
"Well, the self checkouts are working," she said as she continued on her way.
After she took a few steps, I asked her, "Noone's checking tonight?  Who do you have putting?"
"Putting what?"
"Putting all of this aMm back where I got it from."

I can't be the only person to leave a cart full of crap in front of those self checkouts.

I don't know what the frick is wrong with you people.  The self-checkout is the second greatest invention of all time, right next to the smart phone.  Anything that keeps me from having to actually interact with a stranger in real life is A-Okay in my book.
I can't explain it; there's some kind of weird chemical reaction that happens when you combine cat food, beer, and glue.  It makes you feel, like, really sick and tired and you're able to fall asleep.

Exactly.

Scan my three items myself and then leave? Or wait behind three families with two carts each. Hmm tough call.

I guess you guys walk inside when you buy gas because you hate pay-at-the-pump, too?

Probably with an EBT card, if Mark Pryor is re-elected.

Id use the self checkout if it were more efficient and actually worked as good as pay at the pump.  My experience in most stores is that most have gone with really shoddy systems with poor GUIs and awful scanners, and they don't do well with things to be measured like produce.

The real issue is I usually see folks starting at the self line as I pull up to my checker and they are still there wrestling with the machine as Im pushing my cart out.  As there is often a line at the self check line, one has to also factor in the incompetence of the folks in front of you to manage the stupidity of the system in place, plus their speed in sacking their aMm.

I also hate that fricking bell at the checkout line, and the little whoops from the checkers when some dolt dings it.  Kroger here is eat up with that aMm.  Also the "do you want to give a dollar for dick cancer?" when I already said NO on the card scanner when it asked me about dick cancer.

If I only have one or two items, sure I'll use the self checkout.  The chances of it screwing up, or me screwing it up, are reduced greatly with a simple purchase.
The one time I have tried to use the thing with a large number of items made me mad enough to decide I'll never do it again.  I'm pretty mellow, but by the time I finished I wanted to punch people.

as far as anyone else knows, no.

Yea, I don't use it when I'm buying groceries.  The most I'll go through with is when it's time to stock my work locker with snacks.  And then you're looking at 5-6 items.

All the self checkouts do, is keep some 18 yr. old from getting a job. Never use one myself. I have also left carts of groceries sitting in walmarks because there were not enough checker outers.

All automobiles do is keep some horse carriage maker from having a job. I leave aMm blocking the road if there aren't enough horses on it.

I voted against the minimum wage increase because it didn't apply to the robot checkers.

And I believe those items are covered as essential health benefits in certain regions of the country.  Who says those bronze plans are no good.
