Rolling on from the self serve checkout thread, wife went to the store yesterday afternoon to get specifically some plastic spoons for the children to take yoghurt with their school lunches. Again with the stupidity. Went through the auto checkout, and the thing wouldn't let her pay, requiring teller assistance. Teller came over looked at the screen, and asked if she'd tried to buy a knife...yes this. http://shop.coles.com.au/online/mobile/n...ssorted-colours Teller knew that my wife was in her 40s, and let the machine continue on with the transaction. Said that the other day a kid came in to buy a roast chicken, some bread rolls, butter, plastic plates, and the same "knife" set, obviously for a picnic (or a stunningly expensive ruse to get hold of 6 bendy plastic knives)...she had to deny him service, and get him to fetch his mother to finish the transaction.
