We all have to grocery shop, either that or starve. So here in Cincy I go to Kroger’s. I go there because it’s close to my house and they have organic. But they are often out of stuff I want and lately they’ve taken to self-scan check out. After eight at night that is the only option and I often shop then as I’m getting off work.
I hate Self scan!! Especially at the grocery where there are a lot of things in my basket and fruits and veggies have to be weighed. Like I told the person who oversees the scan area...if I wanted a job at Kroger’s I’d apply. I feel like I’m doing their job!
And the biggest thing is if the person overseeing the check out area that isn’t all that busy opened a register we could all check out there and I’d be out of the grocery so much faster. If you buy fruits and veggies there are a ton of glitches!
I don’t mind self-scan at Lowes or HomeDepot as their stuff is marked and it goes smoothly. At the grocery it never goes smoothly and then the overseer of the self scan acts all put out that I don’t know the ten step process for weighing and entering the amount.
Did I mention how much I hate self-scan.
So what about you? Have they introduced self-scan at your grocery? Do you like it? Are there registers open in case you don’t like it and a human actually checks you out? Does your store have clerks wondering around chatting and are you thinking... Just open the blasted register so I can get out of here and go home.
Okay, I feel better now after my rant but if you hear about a clerk getting decked by an irate customer in Cinch
you’ll know who it is.
