I'll be damned if I'm going to pay for the privilege of scanning and bagging my own purchase while at the same time increasing unemployment. They really have trained their customers, well. Suckers.
    I only shop at the PF Giant. I rarely use the scanners because I enjoy the interaction with the checkers. I know them all! I don't think there is reduced employment at my Giant because of the scanners. Also, I use coupons. I guess I am one of the annoying people! I help them bag up my groceries if they are slammed. I, also, let people in front of me if they have just a few items, or are elderly. I am not in that much of a hurry! As I said in a previous post, patience and tolerance is the key. It gets paid forward even if you don't know about it.

    Agree with this as well. If I can't just do a quick grab and go, I'll let the cashier ring me up while I bag. While I'm with Vrai on being run over by the person behind me, I also recognize when my bagging requirements would slow up the line.
    I would never take a large cart thru the self check. Hand basket or one of the small carts at Giant is my limit. Typically self check is when I can hold it all in my hands.

    I usually try and bring my own bags. Did you know that in California the stores charge for their bags if you don't bring your own?

    I started bringing my own bags along time ago. Montgomery County has that law charging for bags, as well. My daughter takes her own bags everywhere; grocery, home stores, boutiques, mall, etc.

    This has happened to me several times, I thought I was the only one LOL I seriously wanted to pick up their stuff and start throwing it to the end of the line behind us.
