I’ve said this before, but I hate using the self-checkouts at any store since it honestly usually takes longer than just a regular human ringing you up. Something always goes wrong and an employee ends up having to help you anyway so I say let’s just get rid of them and get back to good old fashion humans scanning our stuff for us. At the very least it can prevent people from attempting to steal stuff like the lady in the video below tried to.
The video below was taken at a Walmart in Cranston, Rhode Island, and shows a customer pretending to scan items at the self-checkout and then just tossing it in her shopping cart. The person who filmed this described the incident this way on YouTube:
“We had a little bit of time before getting our son off the bus so we decided to get a sandwich at Subway. As we were eating we saw this woman pretending to scan most of her items and hand them off to her husband who was bagging them and putting them in another carriage. I decided to record her doing this and we then told a Walmart employee. The Walmart employee stopped them at the door and asked for a receipt. She stated it was a short receipt for so many items in their cart and asked them to follow her to customer service. Customer service returned the few items they paid for and told them to leave.”
Now watch this shitty thief in action:
What an idiot.
But I think this YouTube comment says it best:
