Self-checkout lines gather no support

Full story: The Times Herald

Some callers don't like my previous reference to do-it-yourself grocery store checkouts.

555o about the self help check outs at grocey stores- i do not believe in them- eventually they will do away with an employee or two- let the check out girls do what they are there for. help them keep their jobs-

I can check out faster and get out of the store faster by myself. If cashiers were fast and efficient, stores would not have shifted over. As it is, they are slow. They whine all the time including to customers. The error rate is astronomical and theft is high. Plus, it's a boring dam job. Let the clerks have more satisfying work.

I refuse to use the self checkout lines. I prefer to keep people working and not replace them with machines.
Never had a problem with rudeness or theft, which seems silly to me - how are they going to steal when they are watched so closely. Maybe the problem with rudeness starts with the customer, I was in Marysville Meijer yesterday and had a very pleasent young lady checking my groceries, she said she liked working there and enjoyed the custtomers.

You won't use a self check out line? do you ever go a do it yourself car wash? do you use vending machines? how about gas stations..do you pump your own gas? i bet you're the first in line at those pig out restaurants where you don't have anyone waiting on you. have you ever rented a carpet cleaner so you don't have to hire the experts? etc, etc, etc,

Car wash? nope...I take it to the big one in Marysville, AND leave a tip....gas stations? show me one with full service, but I do only go to Marathon, an AMERICAN company....don't go to buffet style places, full of slobs who sneeze all over the food and handle everything. I own my own carpet cleaner, and tools for car work, and ladders for painting...and supplies for cleaning...and so on and so on....what's your point?
So far from all the comments I have read from you on this forum regarding ANYTHING, you have acted like an uneducated child. When you can put together a decent argument for this debate, feel free. Until you can grow up and show somewhat of an education...shut up.
You like those self serve checkout lines, good, if Walmart has it's way you'll see many mnay more of them. I prefer to do my part in keeping some people working, no matter what job they have.
