More technically incorrect

Every time I flew through London Heathrow, I stocked up on fancy British chocolates and saucy political magazines in an airport shop.

Then hell begins. I had to go through a self-propelled process where there was only one person left – and that, only sometimes.

I was reasonably good at scanning items. It is not difficult to find the barcode. But then the device will ask me to scan my boarding pass. Every time I tried, I got the reply: Ask for help.

Then I had to wait for a real human to sort things out, so I could get my first bite of a British penis on Mars.

I’ve struggled for a long time with self-checkout in supermarkets too. Basic things were good. But when it came to weighing bananas or other fresh items, and finding the little box to click “organic” or not, I found myself leaning toward the fuzz.

This has never been easier. In fact, it felt like work.

My experience did not last long. I went straight back to the real human exit staff who already knew how to do it.

However, I felt confident that I was in the minority. Surely more of the global app dependent community is now completely happy not to talk to anyone, check their stuff and then go.

But then I saw Video taken at a British Tesco supermarket. Only one human line was unlocked, as a glitch disrupted all other human-led exits.

However, the self-loan operations All are reported to be still working. And no one was using it.

In this particular case, some reports Suggest This supermarket recently introduced a self-checkout system and that was a bit of a protest.

I was impressed to wonder if these self checkouts only save time when you buy a simple thing or two and there is no express line, or the express line is long.

Not long ago, search show up 67% of people have experienced some type of failure when self-propelled.

Even worse, it appears that these machines may soon approach the reliability level of a McDonald’s ice cream machine. It is not cheap and does not break down. And – you’d never believe it – theft seems to be higher on self-exit than that in which a human might see what you’re doing.

I know you’re going to tell me Amazon showed it though Go to storesOnly humans can enter, capture, and disappear, while cameras monitor their every move. I went to one in Chicago and she was deeply soulless. It is very limited in its scope.

Supermarkets may inhale that it is difficult to hire staff, self-pay is faster, and please, dear customer, keep up with the times. The pandemic has also prompted more people to go out on their own to avoid human interaction.

But for me at least, going to the supermarket is a local and personal experience. I love talking to the checkout staff, if they are in the mood. I like to see them regularly. We share complaints about the San Francisco Giants and share our joys of being a Golden State Warriors fan. If they haven’t seen us in a while, they’ll wonder where we’ve been.

No machine will do that. Well, not yet.

I have rarely seen a self-checkout line in any supermarket. This may be an indication of its maximum efficiency. It could also be a sign that not enough people don’t want to use these things because they find them too annoying.

I am sure that America’s most eminent thinker, Elon Musk, is already working on this difficult issue.

However, the first self-propelled system was installed in 1986. Don’t you feel like it hasn’t been embraced globally?
