A Self-Checkout Fantasy


Wouldn't it be nice to just walk up to a self-checkout, scan your items without complication, chuck them into a bag, and for them in under five minutes?!?

Now.... That's LIVING!

In my world, waiting in line at the self-checkouts turns into a reunion of sorts every time.

Never fails.

Take for instance, yesterday....

"Hey, fancy meeting you here."

I glance up to see a coworker who I never talk to and rarely ever see. Yet, here he is, sidling up to to chat at the self-checkout.

And there I am, standing there, holding a box of tampons, a box of pads, a makeup compact, and a Slim Jim.

Fantastic.

"Hi. Had to pick up a few things after work."

Dear God.... Please let this guy just go away.

Nope!

Glancing down at all the stuff in my arms, I could see his eyes moving back and forth as he started to read the words on the box of pads in my left arm.

Really?!?

"Oh, I'm up. It was good talking to you! I'll see you at work."

Lies!!!

I was already speeding up to the finally open self-checkout, I couldn't be more uncomfortable if I'd shown up for school naked and without my homework.

I can't believe he read the box....

Happy Tuesday!!

    Quoting MrRareity:
    The only way I'll use self check out if it's later in evening like 9 or later. Otherwise it crowded and you still have to wait in line for those people who think if you buy 4 cans of soup it's only one item. I'm sure the guy knew what you had without reading the boxes. The next time you could let the spawn go and get the items you need and your problem is solved. Did you get an A+ for the day going to school naked?
Now that I'm living out in BFE, I have to do my shopping when I get out of work. It sucks a little because that's usually the busy time of day, everyone is getting off work at the same time, but it's just too far to drive for me to head back to the store later in the evening. Self check out is usually the only spot where there aren't lines.

As for the A+... I cannot confirm nor deny.

ha ha ha ha ha

    Women need those items. It is no different than buying food so do not be embarrassed when seen with them. I sometimes cannot believe the crappy baggage you women are loaded up with. Then again we men are loaded up with a lot of crap baggage too. Sadly, a lot of it seems to act like throwing sand in the gearbox of our relationships.
It is a lot of baggage, both sides. Makes you wonder just how we've ever been able to make things work!

    My husband HATES self check, but anymore it is about the only way to get through a quick run to Walmart. He has taught me to snag the "helper" cashier asap and use the scanner closest to them if I have any alcohol or anything else that requires ID. Definitely speeds it up. Oh...and I only run into people I know when I am wearing my schlubbiest clothes and my hair isn't combed. LOL
I love the self check out. Nobody scrutinizing what I'm purchasing, it's usually a shit ton faster, and I don't have to make awkward small talk. Win Win!!

    Living in an area where you refuse to establish relationships keeps people from striking up a conversation every time. Throw in a resting hateful expression and you're good to go.
I do have resting bitch face, but I'm just too nice. When people see my natural expression they usually ask me if I'm ok because I look upset. LOL

    Only thing I make sure to use self checkout is if I buy condoms. Dont know, maybe i think they see condoms, see my age and are amazed or grossed out. Go figure.
    I did have to buy depends for mom, I was quite uneasy. At least I wasnt buying condoms and depends at the same time. Confuse the young ones I say.
Oooh! That could be a good story. You should purchase both at the same time and let us know how that goes! LOL

    At the Supermarket I saw a two people with a bar-code wrapped around them. I asked if they were an item.
Self checkout is just so much faster, I use it whenever i can. So, were they an item?? LOL

    You should have pretended you needed to look for something in your purse and hand him a couple of items to hold for you while you do that....like the pads and tampons. Rummage around a bit, then say you can't find it and take the boxes back. Then smile.

Oh my.... LOL Yikes!

    Now the story he'll tell of how you met at the store.
    Maybe he was following up you.
    Could be worse you could have dropped the box and he picked it up for you.
    Or he could have said oh that's why your so moody at work you need them.
    Just for fun he slipped in a box of rubber to your stuff as your scanning away then watches what you do when you pick them up lolololol.
    Oh don't be to embarrass I bought tampons for the wife before.we men we know what they are for.
    Have a wonderful day wait till he see you at work happy joy joy
    He may ask for a second date.
Ha ha ha ha I avoided him all day. Yikes!

Years ago I swore I would never pickup female supplies but years later after be married and having kids it was just stuff we needed,,, throw them in the cart and go ! Hope you have a great week ! xoxo
I used to be super embarrassed by that stuff, and still am to an extent. Thankfully my daughter has not picked that up from me, she has actually gone into the pharmacy and picked up her own supplies before and not thought twice about it.

I don't know how they are able to prevent things like shoplifting, but that sounds like my kind of store!

If you see me in the real world, come say "Hi Justskin."

I always behave. Preferably not well.
