"Please scan your next item."

Why does Walmart not reduce my total if I was the one who checked myself out? Shouldnt they pay me for working for them?

Jay Leno made a joke about this last night on the Tonight Show. He say that Wal-Mart and other stores were giving customers the "opportunity" to scan their things. He then joked about the use of the word, "opportunity." He said, "Didn't that used to be called a 'job'?"

I agree, Linda! But, the Walmart that I shop (which is in the ghetto) never has all of their self check-out lanes open. Only one side is open (because the workers don't do their job and people stole a bunch of stuff), and of that one side, half are out of order. Ridiculous! ugh.

Wow! I'm loving the grammar in my comment- "he say." (That snickering you hear is the sound of my students cracking up at Mrs. Disch's grammar faux pas!) This is why we proofread!

I think they should have a timer on you so that the quicker you get checked out, the more the refund they give you for checking yourself out.

MK has the same philosophy. He absolutely refuses to use the self-checkout and says that the workers need to earn their pay! Hilarious.
