The Sainsburys I use is a big one and has got all sorts going on.
I won't use the self-service tills. I'm not scared of them but my thoughts are that I'm doing Sainsbury's job for them by using them. They're very popular with other punters though, so much so that there's nearly always a member of staff there flitting between them sorting out alcohol and unexpected items in the baggage area.
They also have this scan your own stuff as you go around malarky, walk through the dedicated till and see if you get chosen to be checked. A bit like customs really. This really is quicker as you're usually straight through but it doesn't seem to be very popular with the shoppers. Doesn't make sense to me why someone will do their own checkout but not their own scanning as they go around. Again, I feel it's doing half their job for them. I've got a mate who's covered from wrists to shoulders in tattoos, many offensive, various bits pierced and usually very short hair. He seems to get checked quite a lot when he self-scans!
I just like to patiently wait in the queue for the person in front who suddenly realises that they have to pay for all the stuff they've bought, fish out their credit card, oh, and then there are reams of coupons to check, some of which aren't valid as the bonus Nectar points are for buying two 2 litre Lenors, not the 1.5 litre so the person decides if they actually want what they've bought or can one be taken off the bill etc. etc.
The ladies who work the tills when I go are all lovely and seem genuinely happy in their jobs so all's good.
