Brand new cartoon: The self-service checkout
Self-service checkouts make us unhappy. The shops install them with that aim. In an ideal world I would avoid all shops with self-service checkouts, but the reality is that I must use them and stand there waiting for the shop assistant to finish helping one of the many other people for whom the machines are not working.
Come on shops – it is time to admit they don’t work and go back employing actual staff.
