Aloha Friday/Friday Follow

An Island Life hosts this meme. Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

My Question: Do you ever use the self checkout at stores?

My Answer:   Yes. Sometimes. And I must be a glutton for punishment, because 90% of the time it doesn't work right. Never mind the time when a lady who works there totally yelled at me one time.

Now on to Friday Follow. I hope you will follow me - let me know that you are, and I'll visit you as soon as I can to follow you.

Hope you all have a great Weekend!♥


  1. Happy Friday Follow and Aloha Friday! I do use the self checkout but not often. I've had problems too and I always get paranoid it's not checking in and I'll get in trouble.

    Thanks for linking up this week and best of luck with the cash giveaway!


  2. we don't have the system in here but i totally would use it if i would be back in states now
    Aloha and here's mine!

  3. Yes but only if it's crowded and I only have a few items.

  4. I use to but, now I'm shopping more at stores that do not have them.

    Have a great Friday!

  5. yes i like them better, easier and faster.

  6. Previously working in a store with self check-outs I know they are a headache. But, alot of it is people don't get the concept. You can't put any kind of weight on the bag rack at all, other than your items.

    Use it for a couple of items and you are fine. Don't use it for big shops, you will get so frustrated if you do. People have to also realize the cashier is watching several stations and when everyone is holding up their produce asking for the code, instead of looking it up it gets to be a little much.

    So, to answer your question...not usually, I can't stand the things:)

  7. Stopping by from Friday Follow! I am your newest follower! Have a great weekend! :-)

  8. No, because the kids always insist on scanning the items. Which just doesn't work :)

    stopping by from aloha friday

    they are a complete waste of time. because you start it and something goes wrong, computer doesn't like what you picked out, then you have to wait for someone to come and correct the problem. may as well just have jumped inline on one of the other registers !!!

  10. There is a new Harris Teeter by us ~ a little expensive, so I don't do "full" shopping there (I still am able to use the commissary!!) But I do go for lots of little things and I ALWAYS use the self check-out - it's fun!

  11. I was a checker for a year as a second job. So I always use the self checkout! It is so much faster for me.

  12. I Never use them. I'm too much of a people person and Love to chat with the cashiers. Especially those at Walmart, since they are about the only people I can meet who are Older than i am. :)

  13. I'll only use them if there are no manned check outs

  14. Great blog! Found you on Friday Follow! I would love if you stop by and follow back.

  15. I do if the kids aren't with me. It's really tough keeping an eye on the two of them and trying to self-checkout. I love the convenience of it though.

  16. I always use the self checkout lanes! Even if every single lane is open. Maybe its for the same reason I'd rather order online than on the phone? Happy Friday!

  17. I LOVE your new look!!
    I hate self-checkouts. They always have problems.

  18. Only if the regular lines are really long and I only have a few items. I'm not very comfortable using them.

  19. Yes, I always use the self-check outs, unless I have too many items. I figure why should I go to all that work! I have found that you can get in and out in a jiffy at Home Depot and Lowes...hardly anyone uses them?
