I’m henceforth refusing to use self service checkouts. I should really shun supermarkets altogether but I’ll keep that hefty challenge for another day.
Every time someone uses a self service checkout they are putting some poor soul out of a job. Machines are taking over human labour at such a rapid pace that I sometimes wonder what we’ll all do when we become obsolete. Working in a supermarket might not be the most desirable work but I’m pretty sure that the people employed by them value their job and their pay even moreso. I refuse to part with my hard earned money to fill the coffers of a large supermarket brand and not have at least some of that money plowed back into the pocket of a fellow community resident.
I am saying NO to self service checkout.
I am also saying no because I don’t see why I should pay the same for goods that I have to process myself. Where’s my customer service? I’m putting my foot down on being treated like a walking cash machine, not even requiring a happy hello or assistance into the bargain.
Next time I’m offered the self service I will politely refuse and let them know that this customer requires a bit of service for her pound, thank you very much.
