What do you think about those Self Check-Out Lanes such as those found in Wal Marts?

I had a lot of problems on one occassion when they had barely installed them at the Wal Mart near us and since then, I prefer to have the employees at the other registers check all the items I have. Besides, that's what they get paid for. Thanks

Wow this really surprises me. Many have responded differently than I would think people would. I for one do not like them at all. Everytime I see one all I can think of is the poor soul it replaced.

I use them whenever possible. My normal grocery store has it and it's great - if I have someone with me to do the bagging, but I don't use it if I'm alone and have a lot of stuff. The Home Depot here is almost all self-checkout. They rarely have anything else open.

The only store that has them here is Walmart. I use them probably about half the time I go there. The part I really don't like is that they announce your total to everyone.

I like them. they are convienant. It is frustrating though when you get behind someone who does not know how to use them.

They are great if Im just buying a couple of things. It's always so much quicker. I hate it when other people have cartfulls of stuff and still go through the self check out lanes.

I use them at the grocery store. It is best not to use them if you have coupons, a special item, or one that needs to be rung up manually. Then I use the regular checkouts. The self scans are pretty fast and easy to use I think.

I like them especially if I only have a few things and the other lines are long. Our walmart doesn't have them and Kroger took them out when they remodeled a few months ago.

I love them because I don't have to deal with the cashiers when I use them. Most of the cashiers at our wal-Mart act as though I am inconveniencing them when I go through their line.

This is what they get paid for and therefore, should be courteous to the customers. Thanks

As dixielol says above, it's very convenient when you need to use someone elses card. After my wife had our baby, I was constantly at the supermarket getting this and that, for which I often needed to use 'her' money. Since her account is still in her maiden name, the cashiers have a problem with a big guy like me using a card that has Miss *** ****** on it! Using the self checkout is much easier than taking her card to the ATM and using cash in the shop.

I love them. They are so much more convient. Also if you have someone else to use your credit or checking account to pay, they can go through those lines without haveing to show ID.
