Have you ever used the self-checkout, bought an item and KNOW you put it in the bag, but when you got home, it was gone? That just happened to me right now. I KNOW I put this item in the bag and the bag is weighed by the machine. So, I wonder what happened to it? It's too late to go back and look at for it at the store as I went to another store and then back to home.

I looked all over the car and couldn't find it. I had even bought an ice-cream sandwich and put it ontop of the one bag that I put everything in. I sat in the car and ate it and I swear I saw the item in the bag. It has to be in the car, but I can't find it. So, maybe I was imagining things and only thought I put it in the bag.

I refuse to use those there is always someone hanging over shoulder i feel like they think i am stealing from them or trying to manipulate the machine. I prefer to use a teller as they are alwasy great and freindly. I have even gone to the point of telling stores adn shops i will not use the self checkout and if they get rid of tellers then will not shop there.

I feel OK with it. No one was standing over my shoulder, though a lady walked up right after I was done. I had a funny feeling when I left like someone wanted to tell me something. But, I just thought it was all in my head.

There was someone there watching everyone doing the self-checkout, but they weren't looking over my shoulder.

Sorry to hear about your loss , yes many a times I have faced the same problem in my life. The last one was a disastar , i bought a new mobile phone from a near by store, when the shopkeeper was packing it for me, i got a call in my older one and due to some network problem i had to step out, while the call i took the package and started my journey back , on reaching home i was perlplexed to see a different mobile all together, i rushed back to the store only to find that i have lost 3000 bucks in he total transaction, and now i am using an inferior quality mobile after paying a lot.

Wow, thanks for your answer. Goes to show you that someone always has it worse than I do. That surely was a disaster. My item was real small and I can go back and get another one in a couple of days.

Yeah, I thought about that, but didn't think they would believe my story and didn't think it was worth the effort. I haven't had it happen again. One would think I was more likely to forget to scan an item than to forget take an item that I had already scanned, but that hasn't happened to me, either.
