Sainsburys "shop smarter" [plus banal]


#1

Some things:

Don’t they already have this in Waitrose?

Didn’t Safeway do this back in the 1990s? Why like 20 years later are other supermarkets trying to follow suit?

Banal?


#2

robots are taking over


#3

#4


#5

I shop smarter


#6

ohhhhh scan 'n go


#7

It’s just like Safeway in 1995 with


#8

It’s not even 2pm and you’re wheeling out the banal thread. Things must be bad your end chief.


#9

I might have to do switchboard this afternoon ffs. Fuck that.


#10

I’m going for drinks in Brixton tonight. Got absolutely fuck all planned for the weekend for the first time in ages. Gonna bang a lot and cook some nice food I reckon.


#11

Very happy with the early banal tbh.

Trying to decide which is better fresh air or flat full of cosy warm air from an electric heater.


#12

Used to work on the Scan and Go till in Saferz. Regularly had to stop people trying to thieve bottles of whiskey.

Haven’t got out of bed yet


#13

Got an electric heater on my desk while the boiler’s getting fixed at work. It is less than useless.


#14

the big Tesco I go to for my weekly shop has this. never used it, cba.


#15

Should probably use this at waitrose actually. Would love to bag up as I go.


#16

Safeway certainly did do this back in the very early 90s.

My Mum and I used to commute up to NW London from Portsmouth on a Monday morning and back on a Friday evening back in 1992. On the drive back, we’d stop off at Safeway in Portsmouth, just off the A27, and do the weekly shop. It was a self-scanning thing. We’d been doing it for at least a year before that, probably longer. It was quite exciting back in the day, scanning your own shopping.

Tesco have been doing it for a good number of years too, but not as long as Safeway.


#17

One hour left of my working week. How long does it take to switch on out of office replies?


#18

For those of you who do use it, do you get that weird guilt whenever it tells you you don’t need to be checked, even though you haven’t stolen anything?
