With the unemployment rate being what it is, I wonder why people use the self-serve check out option at grocery stores. It seems to me we’re just putting people out of work when we do.

Let’s all be “job creators.” Let’s boycott self-serve checking.

    We use the self-serve check out option when we can, the machine does its job and doesn't stand around shooting the BULL with people in line.

    Self-serve registers at the grocery store are a convenience.
