I never use self check out. I've got to know several of the check out staff at Tesco and always look for them. some of them are friendly ladies: two often have adjoining tills are the 'checkout chicks' according to them - good looking ladies in their 40s. Nice bit of human interaction: one has a daughter at Oxford university so I ask after her: the other has a 17 year son about to fitted with an implanted defibrillator with radio in it - and I spent the last 11 years of my working life doing systems engineering on such radios. Another is the daughter of a local radio amateur that I know, so I ask after him, too. Being pleasant to them means that will help when necessary.
