Shopping

I have just been shopping, for the first time in a week. But really I’ve only been out a few times in a month through ill health. The trouble is the superstore I go to was refurbished in the summer and because I’ve been going to a cheaper, smaller, super market I don’t know where things are. It took me about half an hour to get eight things! I used to be able to go in and get what I wanted in about five to ten minutes. Now I have to search. Plus they have added a lot more self checkouts. I prefer the manned tills, but there were big queues today so I used the self checkout. I had several ‘unexpected item in the bagging area’ situations. Partly because I took my own bag and it didn’t like it. Then it kept telling me to put the last item back in the basket? A woman manning the checkouts had to come over and sort out the computer screen. Oh for old fashioned checkout people. I went home and vowed not to go out again tonight.

  1. That’s so frustrating! Bad enough when things are all rearranged, but to have to deal with a fussbudget self-checkup setup, too? Awful! I don’t like them either. The last time I used one (when they were first introduced) there was a man behind me who kept putting his stuff onto the space where mine was supposed to go and the automatic scanner kept adding his costs to MY tab! Grrrr. I had to get a manager to sort it all out. I hope you have a better trip next time. 🥰
