I use it at Lowes if I have a few items, But I don;t drag sheetrock, 2 x 4's, bags of quik krete, and an assortment of bolts and washers through there. But people are bent on trying and stress the system to the breaking point.

Lowes was the origination point of my hatred for self checkout.
Trying to ring up several bags of hardware in the DIY line can cause bad words
And the lady in the machine telling me I need to put a box in the bag annoyed me.
I don't need a bag for a box!
lucky for her you didn't box the bag.
"Ride the Barrel and get pitted... So Pitted."
There is a dirty joke right below the surface there.
Yeah but we're too stupid to figure it out.
Some fans claim one series or another runs "real race cars." What's everybody else running, fake race cars? :confused:
INDYCAR - NOW IZODIER THAN EVER!
my blog ... I'm not a big fat woodchuck, I'm THE big fat woodchuck.
I understand now.
Shop Rite did it that way when I lived in a region with Shop Rite stores
We had an Aldi open up near by and after it had been opened about a year I decided to give it a look-see.
I didn't get inside. I walked up the carts lined up in front and when I pulled on the first one it almost threw my shoulder out of socket. Old Tennis Serve/Mtn Bike rotator cuff wear/injury, it doesn't take much. But I tried again and this time focused. They were all locked up with a chain?!?
I turned to voices behind me and saw an 60s something couple walking towards the entrance and I asked them how I could get cart. They told me I had to put a couple quarters in the slot. "So I have to rent a cart?". The guy chuckled and said; "That's about the size of it."
Now I had probably 3 bucks worth of quarters in my console but I had zero quarters in my pockets. So since I had to walk back to my car I felt it was best if I just drove myself home.

Is it like a deposit that you get back? That would encourage returning them to the cart area and I guess it eliminates theft of carts.
It's a Hoosier thing, you wouldn't understand...
I don't know cause I didn't get that far... But if I ever decide to try it again I'll make sure to have a little change in my pocket... But shopping at Publix can spoil you especially when it comes to produce & meat.
You slide a quarter in this little slot connected to a chain and the rest of the carts.
When you leave and return your cart you clip the chain and you get your quarter back.
Keeps them from having to send a kid out every 30 minutes to gather carts or from having a renegade cart roll into my car door
Its no big deal really
21 st century in Richmond Va. The homeless now accept debit card. They have chip readers on their smart phones.
I love the self-checkout machines and always use them if at all possible. Anything to avoid the fake clueless cashiers.
Our local Kroger recently installed some newer self-checkout machines. Now the machine will scream "put the bananas in the bag" if you don't put them there fast enough. Gets annoying very quickly. I'm seriously contemplating buying tampons tonight just so I can hear it scream "put the tampons in the bag!".
I understand that Media Boy engages in self-checkout WAY too often.
