One small step for bacon and eggs……But it *IS* a step.
How good is it that Coles actually let us check out our groceries & do our own transaction! If we customers play our cards right they may eventually grant us the privilege of stacking the shelves.
And precisely what does ‘excessive’ use of sow stalls mean?
OK that’s the pigs and chickens … but what about these poor boxers?
My husband hates self service checkouts, ’cause he sees them as doing some poor school kiddies out of jobs. But I love them! I’m with you, doggie – how cool are they?!
It’s not called ‘the bagging area’ for nothing.
Free range underpants, drover’s cat?
Um JosieK wasn’t 1st dog having a lend praising the self service checkouts…? Your husband is right… I know some of said student checkout slaves… Saving for life’s essentials and adventures… I sometimes ask the checkout kid if they’re studying… The answer is usually yes, sometimes followed by some interesting details… I say let’s keep human life as human as possible… It already looks like that’s going to be a challenge…
ZUT: I’m with you. I’m even free to take out my own shopping.
In the dim and distant past I can remember, in the dim and distant past, and alongside the Beatty Avenue railway station, there was a licensed Grocer shop. They had loose biscuits in tins, Kraft soap, Spam, and tinned Danish sausages. It was run by a man with the most appalling puns, “Did you know the Japanese had entered the space race?’ Me, ‘No.’ He, ‘haven’t you noticed there’s a Nip in the air?’
And my shopping being carried to my car….Gollygollyblissbombs!
PS: Strike one lot of ‘dim and distant pasts’.
It’s a beginning for the involved and committed, hopefully there will be more.
On the subject of shopping: I try to avoid the big two but when I visit my local Woolies I often have trouble getting to products as they now have day staff stacking the shelves. Chucked a wobbly and walked out empty-handed one time when I couldn’t move for stackers.
