Unless I've only got a couple of things, I don't get it.
I mean, you pay a fixed price for a quantity of goods and then:
- Option A: you go through the till with someone helping you to do the same amount of work; someone who is quick because they spend all day doing the job.
- Option B: you do all the work yourself. Slowly, because you have to try and locate the bar code on every item. And then you get into a fucking argument with autotwatwoman regarding unexpected items in the bagging area.
If there's a mahoosive queue at the tills, there's usually a mahoosive queue at the self scans too. So why the fuck would anyone choose Option B?
