Self-service checkouts at supermarkets are great.
- They don’t judge you when you pay for items costing a grand total of Â£1.59 with a credit card.
- You can continue the constant muttering to yourself.
- They’re much more effective at hiding their “I could do so much better than this, you know” expression than people.
- If you’re just buying a small bottle of water and an umbrella, they don’t notice the fact that you’re trying not to laugh because it might appear the first thing you’re going to do with the umbrella when you leave the shop isÂ testÂ it.
Not quite up to the standards of self-service ticket machines in Japan where you get a nice animation of someone bowing to you, though.
