Self Service Check Out – A UK Angle

BBC reports that people in UK are not amused by the self service check outs. But I guess it is more about getting used, I never used one when it came out in US. But then as you see some people looking much more intelligent finishing off with their purchase as you like an idiot wait on a manned terminal while the service rep is helping out someone with a buy 1 get 1 deal.

Its more about using it a few times and then it makes life so much easier. But yes you miss the small chit chat and hi hello exchanges that you use to before. But then these are large markets where you remember more of deals and price tags than the smiles and the familiarity

The tyranny of the self-service store checkout
