To dump my shopping at Morrisons checkout

Bought a few thing in store, used a small trolley as the basket puts a strain on my shoulder and went to the self service. Got stopped from using the till I first went to as I apparently had to use a till with a larger area for my shopping (even though I only had a few bits), got redirected to machine labelled cash only - no good for me, then told to wait for a free space on trolley tills.
Scanned first item fine, second item fine, third item "remove from bagging area and wait for assistant" - waited, cleared by assistant, fourth item "remove from bagging area and wait for assistant" angry and fed up, FFS I could have gone through a normal till by now! Upended all my shopping into my trolley, grabbed my bags, declared Morrisons self service hopeless and marched out and went to Asda round the corner.
Realised at Asda I had left my trolley token stuck in the trolley in Morrisons blush - well at least it wasn't a pound coin.
Probably unreasonable, but felt great for a moment grin.

The "place item in the bagging area" thing drives me flipping mental!!!!

I too ivanacake regularly get an unexpected 3yo in the bagging area or have items unexpectedly removed by the 5yo who wants her moshi shampoo in her hand rather than in the bag.

I also hate all small items that it can't bloody well weigh as they are too light and they swear I haven't put them in!!

Then add to the fact that 3 of the cheese strings in the bag were eaten by my 3 on the way round so it doesn't weigh the same and I don't want the hanger thanks as they take up so much room in my bag!!

Finally I am in NI and we now have shopping bag levy so you thing your own, they never ever like it when you bring your own, doesn't matter how many times you tell it there's a bag there, it still says "unexpected item, please weight". The sainsburys ones take forever to recognise each item in the bag (I'm a quick scanner/packer, used to be a checkout girl grin that's why I'm using the Damn thing... to save me time as I know I'm fast!!!) so I now boycott them.

Our local teach got in scan and shop last week, I'm going back to it and I don't get a full rescan every time. What's the point of the assistant anyway, they come over and clear it ever checking anything so it's pointless having the weight monitoring..

I don't like them... Can you tell smile

Morrisons must have bought a cheapo job lot of their machines because across the country they are worse than useless. they especially hate 'light' items as the scales dont seem to pick them up so i always give the bagging area scales a little downward shove when i am loading small or light stuff so the dumb arse machine reads that something has been put down there.

I had the unexpected item in bagging area alert. It was my bloody bag, how dare it tell me off for a bag in the bagging area.

Special tills for trolley self serve at my Morrisons buttercrumble so trolley not in anyone's way.

I've done that in Morrisons. The staff were having a chat round the corner and I just couldn't be bothered to stand and wait for them.
