It’s hard to imagine a world before self-checkout, isn’t it?
A world where we all had to stay in long lines at the store, patiently waiting our turn for the cashier to finally get to us. And then you had to go through the whole process of, “How are you?” “How is your day going?” “Would you like paper or plastic?”
We’re living in a different world now, people! And I’m here for it!
That is, except for when I have produce…because I’m scared to look up the codes on the big, scary computer…
Anyway, enjoy these funny tweets about self-checkout!
1. A little help over here?
Hey, I’m not any happier about this then you are!
This Target cashier seems frustrated that I need help with the self checkout like I am an actual employee.

2. It sounds like you have a new job.
That’s a good thing…I think…
I decided to use the self-checkout and a lady asked me to scan her stuff, so I did. Then another lady asked me, anyway long story short I'm still checking people out and apparently I work here now. I hope I get a break soon because I'm hungry.

3. I don’t like where this is headed.
It’s a slippery slope.

Sorry about that…won’t happen again…

5. Sounds like a blast.
Maybe these things aren’t such a good idea…
My daughter just learned how to scan items at the grocery store self-checkout, so a trip for bread & milk is now 45 minutes and 137 scan attempts long.

6. You’re gonna get busted.
I’m just sayin’…you’re playing with fire.
Scanning the PS5 as a bell pepper at self-checkout>>>

7. It’s not worth it!
Crime doesn’t pay, people…
I am not brave enough to scam at self checkout. I don't have it in me. pic.twitter.com/vSSWlUuzkV

8. That’s pretty funny.
Mom never saw it coming, huh?
A little boy changed his mom's grocery self-checkout's language to Spanish. She did not find it amusing. I did. #iheartboys

9. Are you trying to make me nervous?
Because it’s definitely working…
Sorry I sang "The Heat Is On" while you were using the self-checkout at Target.

10. And now, representing the United States of America…
Did you win a medal?
Not bragging but I go thru the self checkout like it's an Olympic competition

11. Yeah, enough of that already.
I’m just trying to buy some groceries here.
At least the self-checkout doesn’t ask me what I’m making for dinner with these items or when I’m going to call my mother.

12. You are a REBEL.
And we salute you…
If you want to know how much of a maverick I am, when the CVS self checkout says, "Please remember to take your receipt," I just turn and walk away. I just leave the receipt in the machine like it's nothing.

Okay, it’s confession time, people…
