I just don't understand how this is possible, but most American hate self checkout!

The main reason is 9 times out of 10 you can't check out without having the sales associate on duty come help you because you punched in the wrong apple code and froze the entire system.

I personally love self checkout for two reasons. I pay more attention to how much money I am spending and I don't have to make small talk with a stranger. Don't get me wrong, I love people but, if you left the kids home with you husband... a few minutes of peace and quit in the grocery store can be gold!
