Home Depot just put in upgraded ones. They work awesome and the hand held is great. I don't even need to take stuff out of my cart.

I'd never do that unless I'm physically incapable of going to the store. For stuff like meat/fish/veggies I want to see it in person before buying it.

I love self checkout for <10 items or so. Any more than that you need space.

Our Walmart only has one self check out with a full service area for bagging, etc.

The HD's near me just rolled out new POS systems and have a scanner built in. However you still need to have an associate type in your hardware items(individual nuts and bolts), which can be annoying..

It was however disappointing that the new POS system didn't accept Apple Pay/Google wallet/Android Pay

Let's be honest, once all the retail jobs are automated away, most of these people aren't going to go become doctors and dirtbag lawyers. They will just start taking the governments money. Taxpayers get shafted some more, but Chinamart doesn't have to pay as many people, so that's good.

So Billy Bob works at Home Depot to buy shit from Laquisha who works at Walmart to buy shit from Calvin at McDonalds that buys his junk from Brandi-Lynn at Winn Dixie who buys her cigarettes and beer from Shanice at the Quiktrip. Now they're all unemployed, and since Lockheed Martin isn't hiring cashiers, they get to stay home and use the self checkouts when they go shopping on the first Friday every month after the check hits the mailbox.

Next time all you "Im not a checker, so let them do their job" types are at the store think about this, they handle everything that comes through their line. An hour before you were there a 200 lb. water buffalo with 7 sick crotch fruit went through there. Those sick little disease factories touched every single thing in that cart, no to mention mama cita who just wiped all their snotty noses. The checker will probably use some hand sanitizer, but are you willing to take the chance it will work?

I will handle my own stuff (not counting the stockers or others who may, or may not have handled it). I was a checker at a grocery store years ago, and people are pigs. Its not as bad now that most use a debit/credit card. Money is handled by everyone and is the dirtiest thing in the world. I couldnt wash my hands enough back then.

I bet you're the same person that screamed bloody hell about auto factories using robots and want all cars to be hand built, and damn the cost.

I prefer self checkout. Unless I have something that has to be removed from a box so assholes can't steal it, then I go to the wait in line register.

Why would you prefer to wait in line behind the cunt that still writes checks, when you can zip through the self checkout before she's done getting a manager clearance?

I would much rather check myself out than to have to talk to people. As the above post says, unless I am buying beer or something.

I don't like people and any chance I can avoid forced unnatural conversation, I will seize the opportunity. I am not above placing my own goods into my own bags while paying for them. I also bring the cart back to the store after unloading it.

I had a job as a cashier.
I never expected a discount for doing someone else's job. Loading my own lumber at lowes doesn't offer me a discount.
I use cashiers and treat self checkout like the express lane. Did anyone ever complain about people with more than 10 items at the express lane? Sounds like the new complaint is self checkout.


Costco just added self checkout. I swear it was the fastest self check out I've ever used. Plus it seemed like (only one sample size) everyone respected self checkout for quick in/out and not buying the weekly groceries.


EDIT: Checks haven't required manager clearance in over a decade at any store I've shopped at. They've become digital and the money is instantly withdrawn from checking accounts. It's awesome when people act like they're amazed it's not going to float for a day or two.

It's actually pretty awesome, and the service I use has better stuff than our local store has.

I don't mind self checkout most of the time. What I do mind is using self checkout and then having to show my receipt at the door. When asked for a receipt I usually say "no thank you" and walk right on past. Once the items are paid for they become my property and you don't have a right to search my property...
