Self-service checkouts mean redundancies
Had to go for a very rare foray into a supermarket over the weekend and I noticed with some amusement the new 'convenient facility' which supermarket chains are providing.
Essentially they had got their staff walking along the queue of shoppers at the till encouraging them to use the self service checkouts. I said to the chap I never use them because if supermarkets get away with training shoppers to use self service checkouts then the first thing they'll do is make all till staff redundant.
The staff member cogitated for a second and I was amazed to realise that this had never even occurred to him. Also the lady ahead of me turned around and said 'I never thought of that. I just find them frustrating when they won't scan but now that you mention it I see what you mean'.
Do people really not see this?
Think National. Act Local. Oh- and superstition is just the dark matter of human history.
