I went to a local supermarket, put down a package of chicken wings and a 12 pack of Heinekens and the white trash teenage bim' at the register says "$3.88". I asked if she was sure and she said that's what it says. So I handed her a twenty, waited for my $16.12 change and said have a nice day.
I'm sure I'll see her stripping somewhere in the near future.

Duh. Self-checkout lane. The checkout lane wasn't manned. You see, THIS is WHY the Founding Fathers created the Electoral College to elect presidents. They didn't trust "the rabble" (common folk to you) with something as important as electing a leader. You know something? Based on the stupidity I see, everyday, on these boards, THEY WERE RIGHT!!!
Actually the self-checkout lines ARE monitored. There are scales beneath the bags to weigh what you put in. If it doesn't "match" what it should be, the register "calls" for assistance.

That "HOOD" comment points to exactly the opposite.

How is that the case? Becase I HATE criminals? And don't tell me I am a racist. I could care less about color. I only care about actions and if you want to be a civilized person you don't commit crimes like an animal who doesn't know better.

"All self checkouts are maned."

Kind of defeats the PURPOSE of a self check-out lane, doesn't it? And it's M-A-N-N-E-D, not maned, you jerk! Yes, I AM an "irritating ahole."
I work quite HARD at it; thanks for noticing, lamebrain!

Yup, THIS is WHAT is OUT there. I'm surprised ANY business, STAYS in business, with the retards they have working for them. Thank you for reinforcing my conviction that you'll NEVER go broke, underestimating the intelligence of the American worker. If I owned a business, today; I'd hire ONLY illegal aliens. A good days work, for "coolie" wages.

High school hottie, you need to get back to your English class.

It's Yeah, not yeh.
It's right, not rite.
It's device, not devise.

Finally, yes, it's old news, but you were the one that posted in an old thread and bumped it up.
