It's not the checkout operators that bother me (although Lidl's scanners seem to work very much faster than most other stores and not need each item's barcode to be accurately lined up) but the person at the front of the queue. Why on earth do people wait till they've packed every item they've bought before realising that they are going to have to pay? I thought women were supposed to be good at multi-tasking, but it surely can't be hard to get the card or the money ready while they're in the queue, or at least to initiate the paying process, whether card or cash, as soon as the bill appears. That way the packing can be done while the change is counted or the card reader's doing its thing. That's why I go for the self service checkout every time. I don't regard shopping as a social occasion but a neccessity.
