Jan against machine
What started out as a really good day quickly turned sour. I took the Igster to daycare and needed to pick up some sour cream for the coffee cake I was going to bake. Not being a big fan of Pick n Save, but it was right on the way home and with the price of gas, it became an option. I walked in and went to the dairy case, picked out 3 containers of sour cream and some butter, because I figured if I was going to run out of anything it would be butter. I walked the mile back to the check out counters and there is no one checking out, no human that is? So, there are a few customers using the do it yourself lanes and I am not a fan of those either. I push the Start button and scan your first items is said to me. I scan a sour cream, dink, it registers, Place item in the bag, I did, place item in the bag, I did, place item in the bag, I DID!!! Figuring it wasn't going to stop telling me to put it in the bag, I tried to scan another item dink it worked, then another sour cream, nothing, another sour cream nothing. Then out comes, place item in the bag...again. I leaned forward and said, I DID!!! Finally a kid came over and said they are having problems with the machines? Well then why is no one checking out? So I said to the kid, I did not start out my day to fight with a machine and he said neither did I .....we were both laughing.
