why does modern life hate me ? (join in)

a rework of an old thread but I was reminded of the challenges of modern life tonight at Tesco.

Self scan is an art / challenge in its self by why oy why to stores insist on printing bar codes on the corner of a product (Tesco crumpets is a case in point) so even the seasoned scanners dont even have a chance of getting the scan to work ?

Go on - join in !

Agree with you on the barcodes. Particularly when it goes over the edge or when the reduced barcodes has a gap so that it doesn't read!

Tpday my work photocopier decided to play up, not good for a Friday afternoon, grrrrr!

Self check out I can cope with but our Tesco has the scan as you shop gadgets. Well it takes twice as long to shop and then clearly I dont look trust worthy because on the few times Ive used them I have had to get them checked by the store assistant to make sure I havent stolen anything. I dont see the appeal. The only time I use them is because DS likes to play shop keeper!

I always try to avoid the self send machines in Post Offices unless there's a long counter queue and someone to guide me.

Self send machine?

Surely that's the big red tall thing you put your post in?

Or when you send yourself through the post like 'flat Stanley ' ? 🤣🤣
