Soul Gravy -Who came up with these rules? You sound like a complete asshole.Canooke -Fighting -Another option would be to leave the item there and not steal it.Soul Gravy - If you attempt to scan and attempt to scan and attempt to scan, and it doesn't work, I feel like the responsibility lies with them at that point. You did what you could to legitimately pay for the item.
No, I'm not flagging down an employee (where are they all when you need them?) and no, I'm not moving back to a regular checkout line and no, I'm not standing around waiting on someone to show up to help me (an associate has been notified to assist you).
This. I'm no theif and I don't feel good about it. But one 3 occasions now over the years I have tried to scan and rescan and scan again. If after the third try it doesn't scan, in the bag it goes.
That doesn't make what I did right. I do know that. But it's a 3. item and I tried goddamn it.
By gathering my items, carrying them to the front and participating in the process of self-checking out, I am entitled to said items in a manner of logical convenience. This is my right as a modern American consumer and one which I fully embrace.
I want this item. The seller charges a price for this item.
I attempt to pay for said item. Through no fault of my own, the seller interrupts, or makes difficult, or otherwise impedes the transaction.
I am entitled to said item at this point in the process. It is not my fault the seller did not follow through on their end. My obligation is only in the attempt to pay; if the seller cannot or will not accept the payment, that is their fault and their responsibility. The item is still mine.
