laughing dogI am one of those people who prefer the self check out cash register especially when I am short on time. It makes absolutely no sense that I continue that preference. Why do I say that? Seems as though every time I choose the self check out those dang barcode scanners fail to read one item! Someone forgot to put that code in. I hear the machines voice, “Item not found, please scan your item again, or press the help button for assistance.” Well heck, I pass the barcode label over the scanner again and nothing, rub the bar code label and try again, still nothing. Thinking man I do not want to push that assistance button, I will be here forever….

Did barcode scanners attend school… They never get the numbers right!
