. . .than to use the self-scan aisles . . .
I thought to myself:
- the kids aren't with me
- there are only 3 lanes open, all with several people already in line
- maybe it's gotten better
and that, my friends, is where it all came crashing down around me. . .it has not, in fact, gotten any better.
I am a fairly intelligent person (never claimed to be a rocket scientist) - I am good at following directions. So I cannot figure out why I can't figure this out!
My first problem was in trying to use my own bags - it kept yelling at me when I put them down. I realized I had to scan an item, put it in my bag, and then put it down on the shelf all at once. See - trick the machine into thinking you used a plastic bag.
My second problem was that it ate my coupon, but didn't scan it or give me credit for it. When I asked the Attendant (the one the machine kept yelling at me to wait for) she could not help me - I had to go to Customer Service. When I got to Customer Service - there was one person working and three in line. It was a dollar and I was not going to be in a pleasant mood - so I left.
Even though I am annoyed at Giant - I will admit - it is my own fault - I know that those machines frustrate me because they are not intuitive enough for my liking. Yet, I keep thinking "this time" will be different. . .
how about you? can you use self-scan successfully? got any tips?
catch you soon -
