Robot Attack















I'm inept. Only rarely do I successfully complete a "self-checkout" transaction at a grocery store without the need to flag down human assistance. Manually entering the proper digits for produce is tough but the biggest challenge is making room on the robot's anti-theft scale for my entire purchase. I prefer live cashiers- even when they mock my less-than-healthy eating habits.

    I charged myself twice for the same pair of shoes using self checkout. And was too embarrassed to go back for a refund. What a dork!

    You will be assimilated.

    Resistance is futile.

    Wal-Mart is actually starting to remove these from their stores because the theft rate has been too high. Big shock there.

    Don't you think you should get a discount if you use this thing? I mean just think at the money they "should" save by not paying charlie checkout anything.

    The scary thing is, we just might cancel ourselves out of every job if we aren't careful.

    These aren't the droids you're looking for.

    oh man. i always think "Oh wow! This will be so quick and easy!" and it takes forever and I screw it up over and over. My screw-ups generally lie in the placement of object onto the bag-scale. Did I wait too long to place it? Is it too light? Pick it up and put it in the bag again? At what point in the scan process can I remove a bag?
