Let's Burn E-Readers!!!
Grievance of the Day!
1) Instead of burning books (like that sign said on my to work this morning) let's burn
e-readers! Save jobs, get rid of e-readers!
Wow! I love my iPAD 256,000,981 extreme collector's edition!!! Push a button, buy a book, and no human interaction!!! But, boy I can not find a job anywhere!!! So, I can not afford to buy the iPAD 256,000,981 extreme collector's edition much less any of the E-Books its sells.
No wonder that we learned recently of a Grocery store chain abandoning the self-checkout lanes for human interaction lanes instead. I SALUTE the store for doing the right thing here. There never was any problems with check-out lanes operated by humans to begin with. You actually push through traffic FASTER than self-checkout lanes.
Or is everyone just blinded here? Like you never saw a self-checkout lane operate like mollasses in 100 degree temperature heat as you wait behind a gigantic crowd of shoppers eagerly looking to pay for their umpteen million grocery items on the scanner machines!
SELF-CHECKOUT??? GOOD RIDDANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I say bring back the "Baggers" as well. I'd rather they bagged my groceries than I have to re-sort all of my groceries because the Cashier has no (*&^%$ clue about how you lump cold items into 1 bag, and dry items another.... not toss things randomly into bags as long as they fit...
