Will Cox on self checkout aisles:
So I kicked the piece of shit aisle. And cussed in front of my daughter for the first time. And now they know how I treat the machines at work.
I tend to do okay at the self checkout aisle at the Weis Market around the corner, but I don’t have child processes throwing exceptions. Every once in awhile I’ll find myself in a situation where the aisle freaks out, but it doesn’t happen too often.
I’ve also found that self checkout is really only worth it if I’m getting a handful of things. Once I’m beyond a few things in a basket, I’m better off letting the pros handle it.
