    Re: Self-Checkout

    First, the grocery store I frequent most doesn't have self check outs but I do use them occasionally at other places. Second, and I say this with the most delicacy possible, as I know some people will likely take this with offense, but generally the experience I have here with people working at grocery store check outs is infinitely more pleasant out west than it is in the midwest, south and on the east coast. I won't go all out and say people are nicer here because I'm not sure that they are, but I will say that people seem to me to be much happier here than in a lot of other places I've been and it seems to reflect in their attitude to others.

    Re: Self-Checkout

    I rarely have issues with self-checkout and greatly prefer it...

    Use self check whenever possible. I actually get mildly annoyed when I go to a grocery store that doesn't have self check and I try to avoid that store in the future if possible. It doesn't really have much to do with the customer service, im just faster than they are. I've become an expert on those things.

    If I'm too far over the item limit, I'll put things back to get nearer to the limit.

There is a huge difference between "Service" and "Servant", and your grocery/department store checker is not a *servant*. they're providing a service, and deserve a little bit of respect and courtesy.
    Having spent a few years of my youth as a bagger, I totally empathize with this. There's a lot of rudeness on display from customers. I'd tell each customer to have a good day, and I'd say 90% of them would would just grunt in response or simply ignore me. To this day I always make sure to be polite to those in customer service, because I remember how much it sucked being on the receiving end most times.

    Whichever line is shortest and gets me out of the door quickest. On any given day, that could be the self checkout or the cashiers.

    Depends on who the checker is. Here at the local Walmart we got a few humdingers. LOL

    I use for their speed and convenience if I'm only purchasing a few items. But other then that I stick with checkers. If the technology is too successful then that means more people getting replaced and in the unemployment line.

    I'll use the self-checkout, but what with that, ATM banking, drive-through windows, on-line shopping, & etc., I think we are giving up our ability to interact with actual people.

    Guess that makes two of us.

    As a variation on this theme, I used to stand and wait for someone to bag my groceries at a non-self-bagging store like Kroger. I figure since I'm paying for the service, I might as well get my value.

    But somewhere along the line, I got over it. If my wife is handling the money part and there isn't a bagging dude in sight (which seems to quite often happen), I just bag up the groceries myself.

    Let's see how well trained we are. Who returns their shopping cart? Who buses their own fast food table?

    I absolutely do both. It really annoys me when people don't do those things. Especially the cart. I'll return more than one cart if it's on my way.

    Both, always.
