Waitrose in Wilmslow works a dream you fucking luddite, you can’t use groats anymore.They have to be one of the worst ever inventions, I hate using them!
All the big supermarkets are getting more of these things, and I've noticed that if you go in ASDA after (I think) 10pm there's no one on the tills, leaving me with no choice but to use these moody fuckin' machines that basically take the piss!
Yes, I'm almost 3 times the legal age to buy alcohol but I always seem to wait ages till a pissed off looking assistant comes over to allow me to buy. Then if you don't place your items correctly on the scales(bagging area) it won't let you proceed. And that's if it scans items properly. And I think you need a degree in how to buy fruit & veg, it's a fuckin' pisstake.
If you finally manage to get to press 'pay for items' without losing the plot it asks how many bags you want, so you have to piss about pressing more buttons wasting yet more time. And if you're paying by cash you have to put the note in a certain way or it spits it back at you!
I got so pissed off a couple of years ago I just left what I was trying to buy and fucked off out of the store. Went to Aldi instead where I can always be served on the tills by someone who is usually always pleasant and efficient.
Asda Tesco Sainsbury's and Morrisons are getting more self serve tills but their prices remain high yet they are cutting staff on the tills!
Oh yes you can.Waitrose in Wilmslow works a dream you fucking luddite, you can’t use groats anymore.
don’t have to que for f*ckin ages whilst some granny decides to buy her months shopping in one hit and your standing there with a few items.
Don’t have to watch the service person fanny around, scanning and chucking the items in a small space for you to pack.

Spoken like a true Londoner BH :)
Vote with your feet and make it abundantly clear that them saving money and wages is not your priority and that you want customer service and the help of a till operator in buying and paying for your shopping.
I was in this morning and almost directed to a self service till by a member of staff and i stood at an empty till, politely refused and said no, you can serve me here thanks.
I'm not being awkward, i just refuse to stand doing what someone else who works there should be doing and i refuse to be stood there waiting for a member of staff to turn up and reset the self service till when it does its inevitable "sorry, computer says no" act.
Don't you like to hear about their love/sex lives they share at volume with the next till?I am with you, it used to infuriate me when the cashiers started chatting to each other and treated you as the invisible man.
I can now check I am being charged correctly with each item I scan, put them straight into the shopping bags and be out of the store in the shake of a lambs tail.
