Now incorporate a camera to automatically select the price for you.
Isn't that to overcome the problem where most people weighing fruit
and vegetables input carrots as being the product on the scales. Some
supermarkets were selling many tons more carrots than they put on
I note in some of te supermarkets many more cameras monitoring the
individual self service checkouts
Costco and Walmart in the US have closed some self-service tills,
allegedly due to 'losses'.
I wish Sainsburys near here would do away with some and man more proper
I'm fed up of long queues at the trolley self-service, because no tills
are manned and the basket self-service is closed, so that they only need
one member of staff.
I'm fed up of scanning a bottle of alcohol (or even alcohol free wine or
beer) and having it flag up as needing approval and needing a tag taken
off, so I can't pack it and end up with the heavy liquids on top of
stuff that gets squashed. Even worse, they now have changed to okaying
the purchase, but they don't take the tag off until after you've paid -
and of course they are then tied up with someone else and you're stuck,
trying to get their attention
It's so much easier to go through the manned till, if any are open.
