Confession Tuesday:

At the grocery store, I prefer to stand in line for a cashier, even if the self checkout is wide open.

Cashiers need their jobs and wages and Iím not interested in paying a store thatís already getting my money to do a cashierís job for free.

Yeah, I support retail workers when I can, because theirs jobs are already tough and they need to be put into a position of necessity wherever automation is competing with them.

This has been a Confession Tuesday.

2. I Ask For Someone To Help Me

After 60 years of cashiers and after working long days I don't feel like scanning crap.

Can you get someone to help me please?

3. I do exactly the same thing, Mr. Scorpio -

and for exactly the same reason. These people need to keep their jobs. They need the income. And, besides, I find that most of them are very friendly, and I really enjoy the personal interaction.

5. Depends on how much stuff I have and how many in line...

If it's lunch time, the self-checkout is usually backed up anyway. But if it isn't and I only have a couple of items, I'll use it.

But when I do a normal store trip, with more than 5-6 items I like to use the cashier line.

6. And WalMart ain't going to give me a W-2 for doing THEIR employee's job!

Why should I work for free?

7. I consider standing in line

A great excuse to stand around and do nothing. Take deep breath and relax.
