I pre­fer peo­ple

I would like to share a re­cent ex­pe­ri­ence at Wal­mart.

I stopped for a quick pur­chase. I was in line at the ex­press cash where they have four sta­tions, but only one cashier work­ing and a lineup con­tin­u­ing to grow.

One of the as­so­ci­ates came along and asked if some­one would like to use self-check­out. I asked if she could get some more cashiers but I was ig­nored. The sec­ond time this hap­pened, she went on a power trip and asked me to stop yelling at her, which I had not.

If I wanted to use self-check­out, I would go on the in­ter­net. I do not like ma­chines re­plac­ing peo­ple. Peter Sin­iowski Lon­don, Ont.
