Had another run in with a Sainsbury’s self-service checkout today. If you accidentally touch one of TWO weights is goes nuts. [ldnhal]
twitter (feed #4)
There is a weight also in the bagging area. If you happen to touch the second weight (or your bag) it will burp. It thinks you are stealing. [ldnhal]

So I angrily gave up. Left the shopping in the baskets and stormed out. And went to Waitrose. Slightly more expensive, but no frustrations. [ldnhal]

The self-service checkouts are just pain when you have more than a couple of items. Note to self: leave when there are no manned counters. [ldnhal]

Quote by Scott Adams Blog: Comic FAIL/Artist’ Secret

0 #

The Artist’s Secret is that all art comes from abnormal brains. So if you create art that satisfies your own tastes, you have created for a market of exactly one abnormal person. If you’re lucky, a handful of other freaks get some joy from your creations too. But it won’t be enough to pay your bills. It’s not a career until you learn to create products that normal people like.
