Why would someone stand in a long regular lane with two items when there is a perfectly good self checkout open?

I don't get those people

[@526179,TurtlePink] I saw it the other day
You're a little entitled...

[@776292,BeefySenpie] how? I just don't see why anyone would wait in a long regular lane when a speedier option is open to them. It's one thing to be in a normal lane with an entire cart but for two items it doesn't make sense

[@590561,synthetictears] It makes sense to those that can't use self checkout desks.
[@590561,synthetictears] For whatever reason they're clearly uncomfortable using it, so taking an extra two minutes of your time isn't their problem

My husband does it because he doesn't want the self checkouts to take jobs away from cashiers.

[@557324,Poppies] A cashier oversees the self checkout though
Poppies · 61-69, F
[@590561,synthetictears] Yes, but only one cashier for several self checkouts

Because 1) I like to talk to human beings and 2) if we all use the self checkouts the shop will eventually just fire all the staff. I don't think that's moral, and it would then make point 1 harder anyway

[@787612,Lhayezee] I don't think all the staff will be fired

[@590561,synthetictears] Give it ten years.

Self-checkouts take jobs away from people. And they aren't designed to be helpful, they are designed to catch you cheating.

[@45528,hunkalove] who cheats at a cashier?
hunkalove · 61-69, M
[@1056803,Iwasheretoo] Probably no one. That's my point.
Iwashere2 · 36-40, M
[@45528,hunkalove] how do you cheat at the self checkout? If you don’t scan your stuff the beeper will go off at the exit
That’s insane. I’m pissed because now there’s a limit to how many items you can take through self checkout. Bastards.

[@420709,LithiumDrop] I've seen some self checkouts that were unlimited but usually at larger locations I've noticed
Powderflask · 26-30, M
Because using self checkout incentives automation and the unemployment of the working class. Never used 1, it’s a matter of principles.
Iwashere2 · 36-40, M
There’s always an express lane for that

the billionaire owned corporations have indoctrinated you to perform tasks they used to provide. less overhead, weaker union, no employee benefit costs. ka-ching!!!

They don’t pay me to work there.
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
They charge me the same price for doing the work of a cashiers.
