Everyone hates self-checkouts, from customers to shareholders. They're disappearing in U.S. stores

Mark me down for another “hates self-checkouts”.
Yes, they are fine if I only have a handful of items, but for a regular sized weekly trip; nope. They are: slow & noisy (announce to anyone near by exactly what I am buying, EG “Place your _ peas _ in the bagging area”), prone to scale errors / freak out if you try to rearrange anything, often have trouble when you bring your own bags and so on.

I’ve been in line behind other people too who were really struggling to get through the process and taking a looong time. I couldn’t be mad at them though, it shouldn’t be their job to learn how to operate the stores equipment efficiently.
