Do ewe guys use self serve xpress lanes at stores?

I have used the self checkout at Wally World and one time it frozen halfway through and I had to get a manager to unlock it. I was getting groceries and the lines were soooo long with a handful of registers open. I always scan everything, that's just me. Online piracy yes, in store piracy no.

Those self serve registers are a pain in the ass.  "Unknown item in the bagging area" It takes longer than the line.   usually i don't mind a long line cause I will look at magazines. 

Altho once I want to walmart (ONCE) and tried to ring up some alcohol, it alerted the supervisor who was frustrated and swiped her badge without looking at the issue (I was buying lots of crap and it was the zillonth time it alerted her).  I ended up getting free alcohol!!!!! 

Oh and the Target ones with the camera... so depressing.   Worst angle and lighting ever.  I hate how Target smells like stale popcorn.   I hate Target, actually.  And I hate Walmart.   I buy that kind of stuff online if I can.

lol yea target camera's are the worse! I once had to do a double take, because I thought i spotted a Yeti..then looked closer..No way I look like that! then started to feel my nose to see if it was really that big

these self checkouts + lazy & distracted workers = free stuff.

I had like 4 items that didnt scan sitting in the bagging area, and the worker asked if I had paid for the .12c plastic bag

HAHAHAH LOLOLOL

The other trend that makes shoplifting easy is the new "bring your reusable bag" deal.  A few years ago I went through a bizarre shoplifting phase, I didn't steal anything too expensive or meaningful... but if you walk into say Target with a few cloth bags, when you unload your items just keep the bag on and don't take out everything.

I've got a guy here who checks who is a little bit mentally disabled/not right.  I've discovered that if I engage him in conversation, he will often get a little confused and put things right in the bag without scanning them.  It's better than self checkout.

Self serve is always a pain.  They run it by video camera at my place, you never even see the people who override the bullshit errors that happen.  "Put your BANANAS.....IN THE BAG."

LOL @ distracting checkout tard to score free items. What do you do? talk about quantitative differential analysis?

I think I may use these self serve checkouts from now on..and see if I can break my record. I noticed anything thats light..like bday cards, lip balm, dont even register on the scale. u can just pretend u scanned it and throw it in the pile

The other day I scanned a bunch of power tools from Home Depot..i didnt even notice until I looked at my receipt in the parking lot..but only registered like $40 of some $150 of goods. that made my day

and nope..I have no empathy for big corps VIVA LA REVOLUCION!

CHEAP ass

I bought 4 cards and scanned it as one.   

I wonder if these companies are saving any money on the $12 per hour cashier versus how much people steal at self serve.

Whenever I use the self serve kiosk, it says to me, "It puts the lotion in the basket." I don't know why.

I only use those things when I have one or two items; otherwise it's a pain in the ass. And no, I've never stolen from one.

I like to go through the checkout line. I choose the line with the cutest chick at the register; even if it's the longest line. Then I stare at her boobs.

Sometimes I'll tell the cashier this joke:

So a lady is at the grocery store register. She places down a tube of toothpaste, a toothbrush, a single serving dinner and an apple. The cashier says to her, "I see you must be single." The lady says, "Why, yes I am! How did you know?" The cashier answers, "Because you're fucking ugly."
