Seamless technological integration.

How long to buy 3 fruit juices and two bottles of wine? Couple of minutes, 3/4 at the outside.
A farcical notion. 15 at least.

3 staff were needed to constantly remedy these issues on 4 checkouts. I personally think they would be better put to use hhhhhm - on tills? They would also be safer there, further away from the irate customers.

Well done Sainsbury's - Why does Tesco not have this issue?
Next time I will simply shoplift.

You could use that last line as your excuse for the shoplifting.

Holy shit! I'm visiting my dad right now and we were subjected to the insanity of a self check-out. It was obscene, and at one point we almost just walked out sans groceries. I'll take the pimply teenager that puts the jug of cider on the dozen eggs over HAL, the intuitive grocery computer, any day of the week.

i want to mastermind a shoplifting ring. I'd to avoid leaving the house, yet I can see the benefits of shoplifting. Haven't figured out how to e-shoplift. Must get started immediately. No time to lose.
