My DP does not use them because like PP it puts people out of a job, same with trolley collectors if it's busy he will take it back but if not he won't because it puts a guy/girl out of a job.

I use them for basket shops - it is getting easier to use them with three kids in tow - I have to line them up...and shuffle them through in front of me like THEY are on a conveyer belt!
...and did someone mention IKEA!??

I loooooove them! I like not having to make small talk with the check out staff.

I agree with your friend. I can't stand the self serve thingys. And yeah he is right about taking jobs away etc, I am looking for a job and I could work in a supermarket serving people. Usually there are staff there to help anyway so they may as well just be serving at a checkout.

I use them all the time, even with a trolley (but never a full one). DD2 loves scanning all the items and packing them. I let her do it when there's no one queuing. Cheap time consuming entertainment for her.

I personally hate them especially at big w as I swear every time something goes wrong and u need to wait for assistance anyway!!! I only use then if I have 3 or less items and the normal check outs r busy...

Use for a few things, sometimes for a small trolley (you know the half ones that aren't deep) but not for a big shop. And cause we buy dog food and bird seed at big W we don't use it for those as the weight always stuffs up. I love them, so easy.

I do use them sometimes but if DD is on the loose it is just a pointless exercise because she is either trying to run away or she is leaning on the part where you are meant to put your items, or taking stuff out of bags so it is much easier to go through the register.

I totally get that they are taking away jobs, and do empathise.
However, I was never a check out chick and love doing the self service. My local Woolies has 2 total normal registers that are self service to do a full trolley load. Sadly, I lurve doing it myself.
