AIBU to think that self service is 10 items or less?

M0naLisa Tue 05-Feb-13 16:47:04

Or is that not true??

The amount of people that I see take a full trolley of shopping through the self service checkouts then moan tht the bagging area isn't big enough to hold all your shopping bags because if you remove a bag the annoying voice starts wittering self service freezes until the bag is replaced!!
Just use a bloody till if your going to moan!! angry

I probably am BU but bloody hell!!!

BigSilky Tue 05-Feb-13 16:48:00

YANBU it drives me up the wall!

EarnestDullard Tue 05-Feb-13 16:48:19

Dunno about 10 items, but I'd agree they're for baskets, not trolleys. So YANBU.

MadCap Tue 05-Feb-13 16:49:14

Yabu, our local sainsbos hardly has any tills open these days. Since no one wants to use the self serve ones the lines are always massive. I've been known to take trolleys through.

juneau Tue 05-Feb-13 16:50:20

YABU due to incorrect grammar. It is '10 items or FEWER'.

MrsKeithRichards Tue 05-Feb-13 16:51:15

The ones in Tesco are designed for the wee trolleys. The fit perfectly.

MaxPepsi Tue 05-Feb-13 16:53:42

I would think it was for baskets only due to the space but I don't think there are any rules?

Depends. In Asda they have huge bag spaces for some, obviously aimed at trollies, also others with the little basket sized spaces. I can fit more than 10 things in a basket though, so either way YABU.

Depends on the till, some are clearly designed (and labelled) for baskets only, they only have space for 2 bags max. while others have a longer area to place bags and these are designed for trolleys.
My bug bear is shoppers who start scanning their shopping and then leave to get something else. Everyone has a one off moment where they remember that they wanted a bottle of milk but if there is queue, FFS finish your purchase and then go and get the milk! Please!! and we have one local gentleman who always leaves his shopping at least 5 times while there is a huge queue behind him.

EuroShagmore Tue 05-Feb-13 16:55:11

Never heard this before and have seen trollies at the ones in our local supermarket. I never use them if I can help it though.

ThedementedPenguin Tue 05-Feb-13 16:55:52

YABU, if you work them properly you can scan a massive shop through without it freezing. You just got to know how to work it.

But I don't take massive shops through just a small trolley.

morethanpotatoprints Tue 05-Feb-13 16:56:20


You should say 10 items or fewer, not less.

2cats2many Tue 05-Feb-13 16:57:20


Unless it specifically says so, you scan through as much as you please.

Yes YABU. If they were intended for baskets only or for fewer than 10 items there would be signs to say so.

I don't know which supermarket you use but in my Sainsburys if you run out of space you can put a full bag in the trolley and press the 'I removed a bag' button and the till merrily carries on. In Tesco there's room for 6-8 full bags on the self-service checkout.

Trills Tue 05-Feb-13 16:57:32

YABU to invent a rule.

If it says "10 items or fewer" then that's what it is.

If it says "self service" the it' up to people to decide for themselves.

SoWhatIfImWorkingClass Tue 05-Feb-13 16:59:34

It is really selfish when people take trolley loads through the self service tills.

I used to work at asda (for my sins) and they used to have smaller checkouts for people with a few items, before the self service checkouts came in to play. When I was serving on these smaller tills a woman came to mine with a huge trolley load, and a queue behind her. I told her that she isn't meant be using this till with so much shopping and told her that it's not fair on the other people behind her but she continued to put her things on the very small ledge for loading up your shopping for scanning.

What made her so fucking special? The people behind her had to wait whilst she tried to convince me that she "knows someone high up in asda". Well woopdeedoo for her the snotty cow.

CajaDeLaMemoria Tue 05-Feb-13 16:59:44

No, they aren't ten items or fewer.

Supermarkets actively encourage people to use them, regardless of shop size. Thats why someone stands there who can override if you do need to remove bags.

There are some ten items or fewer lanes in a few supermarkets, but for the most part I think they are being phased out.

Euphemia Tue 05-Feb-13 17:00:02

YABU for having Sainsburys with self-scan tills. envy Ours has none, and there are always queues. angry

MrsKeithRichards Tue 05-Feb-13 17:02:16

So was there a sign stipulating the number of homosexuals mmm?

MrsKeithRichards Tue 05-Feb-13 17:03:33

Omg homosexuals mmm? Wtf?

Items. Items, not homosexuals. I have no fucking idea how that happened!

Noren Tue 05-Feb-13 17:06:13

They are for when you don't want to talk to a cashier for whatever reason (say you get socially anxious but need to shop). I think if a person can handle putting a trolley through that's up to them to choose.

shrimponastick Tue 05-Feb-13 17:07:16

Arf at homosexuals ;)

My saimsburys has a couple of self service checkouts where you can scan a trolley full. There is a full length conveyor belt.

I am too lazy, and will queue for someone else to charge me for my shopping.

Pigsmummy Tue 05-Feb-13 17:08:33

Waitrose and Sainsburys here say "basket only" so that's more than 10 items most of the time. However it has been proven that self checkouts are slower so maybe sack it off if it annoys you? "unexpected item in the bagging area" arrrrghhh! Etc

FloatyBeatie Tue 05-Feb-13 17:08:43

rofl at 10 homosexuals or fewer. I always have a trolley-load of homosexuals. I don't know how we get through them so quickly at our house.

CheeseandPickledOnion Tue 05-Feb-13 17:10:14

YABU. Unless they specifically state baskets only, or 10 items or fewer.

At my Tesco, the sign clearly shows the smaller troller and a basket for the Self Serve.

MmeLindor Tue 05-Feb-13 17:11:05

I think that any more than 10 homosexuals at a time is just plain greedy, MrsKeith.

aldiwhore Tue 05-Feb-13 17:12:20

Usually it's basket only/10 items or fewer, the self service tills are a law unto themselves (I love them, I can shout at them without offending) but or local Sainsbury's has a big sign saying 'under 21 items'.

MrsKeithRichards love the stealth gay marriage debate haha. wink

UnexpectedItemInShaggingArea Tue 05-Feb-13 17:12:37


And I should know wink

WorraLiberty Tue 05-Feb-13 17:14:18

It's 15 items or less at my local supermarket

And the grammar police can get to fuck wink

cozietoesie Tue 05-Feb-13 17:15:27

I love 'small number of items' tills for their entertainment value. The flaring nostrils as people scan other peoples' purchases and try to work out whether it's a true 10 or whether they can complain about a pack of four somethings not being a real singleton. Can't be beaten if you're not in too much of a rush.


Sparklingbrook Tue 05-Feb-13 17:17:53

I use the self serve at Tesco with my trolley, but it isn't piled high. That's because I go at 8.15 in the morning and they have one cashier on, with a queue of people with big trollies with a month's shop in hmm They obviously don't expect any customers.

MrsOakenshield Tue 05-Feb-13 17:20:03

oh God, I'm weeping with laughter at 10 homosexuals or fewer, which is unfortunate as I have an eye infection and it's making it worse. I'm completely out of control!

woopsidaisy Tue 05-Feb-13 17:20:12

Express till/10 items or less, for small amounts.
Self service till for trolley/baskets/whatever.

In my Tesco they encourage you to use the self service till with trolley.


cozietoesie Tue 05-Feb-13 17:20:16

I suspect it's a subtle maybe not so subtle ploy to get people internet shopping for the big loads, Sparkling.

PuffPants Tue 05-Feb-13 17:21:36

I used a self-service till today - with a small trolley. There was nothing about 10 items or less. There was one available so I used it. I'm quick. I hate waiting n checkout queues.

MrsOakenshield Tue 05-Feb-13 17:21:42

in answer to the OP's question, depends on the size of the till. We have ones that a for a basketload, some with full-lengths conveyor belts and some in between.

<what a totally fucking useless post, don't know why I bothered. I'll go and de-gunk my eye now>

Loving stealth gay marriage. grin

At our local Sainsbury's they've started this intensely annoying thing of sending someone to go down the queues asking people with laden trollies if they'd like to use the self-service tills. So I conclude they are for trollies. But funnily enough, the usual answer is, no, why on earth would I want to use something where there's no space to pack and unpack?!

(Yes, I am a grouchy Luddite.)

usualsuspect Tue 05-Feb-13 17:23:44

I don't think there any rules as such, but it's a massive PITA to use them with more than a basket full of stuff.

And lol at all the 'it's fewer' posts.

Did you mean to sound so up yourselves?

Passmethecrisps Tue 05-Feb-13 17:25:42

Did you know that you can unload your bags of homosexuals while still scanning items? You don't need to have everything still on the bag scale. You do need to wait for the lights on the bottom of the terminal to go green though. You only get a few seconds then it goes red again and you have to wait until the next item.

<proud of useless information emoticon>

CloudsAndTrees Tue 05-Feb-13 17:26:49

YABU. The ones in Tescos have huge areas for packed bags, so clearly their intentions aren't just for ten items or less.

One of the deep trolleys is pushing it, but you could easily put a shallow trolley full though the self service till.

The basket only or ten items or less only aisles are a separate thing, and are not the same a s self service.

Our local Asda says "Around 20 items."

DeafLeopard Tue 05-Feb-13 17:31:16

YABU to use self service at all, because it is a staff reduction method.

That and the bastard thing keeps shouting stupid things at people.

iwillsleepagainsomeday Tue 05-Feb-13 17:40:25

i hate self service desk

M0naLisa Tue 05-Feb-13 17:42:19

At one tescos I've been to its said above '10 items or less' not fewer :-/

10 homosexuals or fewer has to be the year's best autocorrect!!

M0naLisa Tue 05-Feb-13 17:45:30

Arf at homosexuals lol

MechanicalTheatre Tue 05-Feb-13 17:45:46

"around 20 items" is just insultingly vague.

I've gone through them with a trolley before. I only shop for two though, so it's not a huge trolley. And I'm really fast.

hiddenhome Tue 05-Feb-13 17:47:15

In Sainsburys I've gone through with a trolley because all the other lines were too long and I was feeling very anxious and not that well and I needed to get my shopping packed and paid for as quickly as possible, then get out. I find that putting my own stuff through distracts me from my anxiety, whereas standing queuing for ages makes it much worse.

RuleBritannia Tue 05-Feb-13 17:49:41

I don't like our Sainsbo's self service tills because I never get a coupon out of them and you can't get cashback. I far prefer the usual tills where someone does the scanning while I look at the customer display. I don't like them because I'm not allowed to put my handbag where the bags are. I don't like them because I'm always being told to put the item in the bagging area. I like to put the item in a bag in the trolley because I don't like bending down to lift up the heavy bags. I just don't like them.

There is no member of staff scanning the items so why don't I get the goods at a cheaper price because no member of staff is doing it? We'll soon be stacking shelves as well!

RuleBritannia Tue 05-Feb-13 17:52:39

MOnaLisa As other posters have said, the correct term is fewer not less. If you have spotted a mistake, report it to the Manager.

I had a temporary job at a Tesco checkout once. We were supposed to give out leaflets about some sort of promotion / outing / can't remember what. There was a glaring spelling mistake (recieve) on it and I reported it. My contract was not renewed.

Yanbu, theres nothing worse when in a hurry seeing someone with a humungous trolley on one of those tills!confused

juneau Tue 05-Feb-13 17:55:56

At one tescos I've been to its said above '10 items or less' not fewer

Yes, I'm aware of that. Putting incorrect grammar on a sign doesn't make it correct.

StuntGirl Tue 05-Feb-13 17:56:22

Are you fucking joking? At the supermarkets near here they try and move every bugger onto the self serve tills. I fucking hate the bastarding things, I'd actually rather queue for longer and be served by a person, not faff about on the bastarding tills myself.

Unless there is a sign saying 10 items or less I would take my full load of shopping through the self service till.

Mind you I don't go to the supermarket because everything about them pisses me off so in a way I can see where you are coming from.

GetOrf Tue 05-Feb-13 18:01:46

I would really like to go to Twatrose and cross out the 'fewer' and put 'less' on their self scan tills.

I can't get all worked up over less or fewer on a thread like this.

Charleymouse Tue 05-Feb-13 18:03:09

You need to use the handheld scanners as you walk round. The kids love it. Although it is handy to collect a pile of bags before setting off.

If you have a huge trolley with a weeks worth of shopping for 5 people, 2 cats and a tortoise you don't want to have to unload and bag it all at the self service desk or by the car boot. Funnily enough this saves you hardly any time at all!

CelineMcBean Tue 05-Feb-13 18:04:22

This is why I go to Waitrose. No self-service tills, plenty of checkouts, you can register and self-scan your shopping and most importantly, their signage says:

^Hand^baskets only


10 items or fewer

You just get a better class of pedant in La 'trose.

BambieO Tue 05-Feb-13 18:05:33

The self service are for trolleys or baskets, the 'express' tills or tills with signs or basket icons are for what they state.

I am actually laughing so much I feel nauseous at 10 homosexuals, the wine has not helped the situation!

CelineMcBean Tue 05-Feb-13 18:09:37

...and it's positively teeming with homosexuals too wink

spiritedaway Tue 05-Feb-13 18:11:49

Beware unexpected homosexuals in the [tea] bagging area. . .

GeorginaWorsley Tue 05-Feb-13 18:17:16

So blinded by tears can't type!!

GetOrf Tue 05-Feb-13 18:19:42

Lolol at 'beware homosexuals in the (tea) bagging area grin

MrsKeithRichards Tue 05-Feb-13 18:34:13

I'm still trying to figure out how I managed that!

complexnumber Tue 05-Feb-13 18:35:37

To me, seeing 10 items or less is as bad as 10cm or fewer. It just grates!

It's as wrong as trying to push 10 homosexuals through the self-service aisle, with or without tea bags.

Miggsie Tue 05-Feb-13 18:36:51

When DH questioned this some years ago when someone put a trolley with 1000 groceries and 12 children through, the manager rather weakly said "oh well, the sign is a guideline, not a rule".

I then suggested they put up a "can you get your good checked through this checkout in less than 2 minutes? If not, piss off"

He didn't laugh.

I stopped shopping in supermarkets, the lack of stress is lovely.

Miggsie Tue 05-Feb-13 18:41:51

oh, another point of note - DH worked on the development of these self service tills, and he doesn't use them - does this give you a hint?!

They are not intended for you to unpack homosexuals - isn't self correcting technology wonderful?

I remember my laptop once corrected my assistant Natasha as "nut case" - that looked good in a staff report.

Buzzardbird Tue 05-Feb-13 18:46:07

Actually I think it is "10 homosexuals or lessers"

Jamillalliamilli Tue 05-Feb-13 18:51:20

I'm in a wheelchair and if it will fit on my lap then it's self scanable for me and I want to pack my own shopping please.

I struggle to reach to put stuff on and off the normal belts and have to fight with them to let me pack my own stuff, if it's packed wrong I can't fit it on my lap, or into the part of the car I use. "Oh but we'll take it to your car madam." " I can fit it in the boot for you."
I know it's all very well meant, but how exactly does that solve my problem when I get home? I have already thanked you for offering me help and said the offers appreciated but I would rather do it myself.

Please let me get on with it.

Some wretched woman (customer) started trying to decide what I should scan next and hand me them the other day, knocking half of it on the floor, then reaching across to scan it for me, and I tried to explain I needed to do it in order and got a barrage of abuse that being disabled made me slower to queue behind. It doesn't actually, I'm no faster or slower than anyone else, just a standard victim of unexpected item in the bagging area.

As you where.

VonHerrBurton Tue 05-Feb-13 19:04:38

Our Tesco has a gestapo-style staff who patrol up and down shouting ' there's a basket only checkout available further down' aimed at people who clearly have trollies albeit smaller ones, sometimes pretty full.

When they say 'no im fine here thanks' you get 'You will be much quicker at the basket till....

Bullies, I tells ya. Shamed and forced to use the basket checkout!!

LineRunner Tue 05-Feb-13 19:10:13

I had an unexpected homosexual in the bagging area once.

exoticfruits Tue 05-Feb-13 19:12:34

I thought they were just an alternative-my local supermarket has very few checkouts-they seem to want everyone to do it themselves.

CelineMcBean Tue 05-Feb-13 19:36:01

Were you buying mince LineRunner? <<innocent face>>

skullcandy Tue 05-Feb-13 19:57:06

god, thats a nomination for 'fuck you, autocorrect' right there.

how the hell did it get from items to homosexuals?

Scholes34 Tue 05-Feb-13 19:59:58

No limit of 10 items. I use them for a quick shop, and I've sometimes noticed that my "quick shop" would keep some people going for a whole week. Depends which angle you're coming at it from.

LineRunner Tue 05-Feb-13 20:01:05


That is honestly the funniest autocorrect I have ever seen. It has broken the thread.

MrsKeithRichards Tue 05-Feb-13 20:56:39

I keep trying to do it again but I can't get from items to homosexuals mmm.

I'm blaming ds2. He's 9m and was feeding as I was typing (on kindle) his chubby wee hand must have done something.

mum11970 Tue 05-Feb-13 21:08:08

Our local asda has four rows of self service tills. Two rows state 10 items or fewer and two rows have no stipulation on amount of items.

piprabbit Tue 05-Feb-13 21:12:10

Our Sainsbury's has self-service tills designed especially for full trolley loads - complete with their own little conveyor belt.
But they only really work if you go shopping with a friend as you need one person to scan and another to pack.

juneybean Tue 05-Feb-13 21:18:35

I have no idea why any one would choose to use the self-service tills, they piss me off immensely.

MechanicalTheatre Tue 05-Feb-13 21:34:48

I have no idea why anyone would choose to talk to people, they piss me off immensely.

FloatyBeatie Tue 05-Feb-13 21:44:58

I like them. The Tesco machines have a note of stirring celebration in their voice when they tell you that you have completed the transaction. They say something about the fact that you can take your receipt and go, and it sounds momentous and joyful, like "You may now kiss the bride." I feel uplifted.

DuelingFanjo Tue 05-Feb-13 23:20:01

YABU. In my local Sainsbury they have one set of self-service tills which have a sign saying 'baskets only' and another one for everyone. I have taken whole trolleys through, complete with screaming toddler.

TuftyFinch Tue 05-Feb-13 23:34:40

You should go to Waitress you can just self scan as you ground then walk out. It's great.

2rebecca Tue 05-Feb-13 23:43:00

I've been in Asda when they just had 1 proper till operating plus 8 self service ones. There is usually a queue at the proper till so I then use the self service till even if I have a trolley. It's not my fault if supermarkets now don't staff their tills, I want to get my shopping sorted as quickly as possible.
If there isn't a sign limiting shopping to "fewer than x items" then it's my busines how many items I put through. If people who just buy a few things want more dedicated lanes then they should ask the shop for them, or just go to a smaller shop with no self checkouts.
Proper tills are more convenient if you have a trolley though, but a large queue isn't convenient.

poorbuthappy Tue 05-Feb-13 23:47:53

I rowed with a checkout lady in Sainsbos one day as I dared to go to the basket only checkout with a trolley laden with...

my 3 year twins and 4 items, one of which was milk.

I literally wanted 20 mins of not running after them whilst looking at clothes and honeware , hence the trolley.
I had to explain myself.
And she tried to blame it on other customers who would have complained about me apparently.
I replied thus, " No they won't complain because they can see quite clearly why I have a trolley and only 4 items".

jennywren123 Tue 05-Feb-13 23:50:02

We have self-scanning in our Tesco now. You can scan everything as you go round and put straight into your bags. Then use the separate tills to pay. They are next to the self-service tills so can swan past the huge queue of people with baskets to the self-scanning tills with no queue. Makes me feel quite smug!

In our local 24hour Tesco you will not find a manned checkout at all after 10pm. It's self serve or nothing, regardless of how much stuff you've got. I hate the bloody things, and I never understand why the item in the bagging area is unexpected if the fecking machine has recognised the barcode, and put item through at correct can it then be surprised at it landing in the bagging area?

jennywren123 Tue 05-Feb-13 23:56:56

I think my son has been scarred for life by Tesco self-service tills. He once said "PLEASE INSERT YOUR CARD INTO THE CHIP AND PIN DEVICE" in his sleep confused

DuelingFanjo - I didn't realise Sainsburys even sold screaming toddlers! grin

Incidentally, it occurs to me that you could get unexpected homosexuals in the shagging area.

Jennywren - we went through a phase of getting ds1 to say a little prayer at bedtime (it didn't last - I was too tired), and one night his prayer was:

"Dear God - thank you for Tescos. Amen". At that point I decided we were beyond prayer" grin

M0naLisa Wed 06-Feb-13 00:11:08

Every time I go tescos now ill remember this thread
Items - homosexuals
Bagging area- shagging area


PurpleStorm Wed 06-Feb-13 01:05:10

Depends on the shop.

I had to take a full trolley load through the self service tills a few months ago because the self service tills were the only ones open.

Believe me, I would have been using a proper till if they'd been open.

33goingon64 Wed 06-Feb-13 06:53:39

Came on here to correct the grammar and delighted to see several of you got there first. Solidarity among grammar pedants!

VivaLeBeaver Wed 06-Feb-13 07:15:23

I've been moved from a queue for an ordinary till to a self service one when I've had a trolley before. I hate self service tills. Our local Tesco now has double the number of self service tills than manned tills. There's at least 20 self service ones.

One thing that puzzles me is if you're buying expensive weigh your own apples - can people just put them through as cheap apples and pay less? Obviously it would be stealing and very wrong. But I bet lots of people do this and how would they know?

5madthings Wed 06-Feb-13 07:36:35

Anyone that uses self service tills is slightly unreasonable, crappy things they are! I dont use them, tho tbh i dont go to the supermarket that often.

Dawndonna Wed 06-Feb-13 07:42:04

If it can be counted, it's fewer.
Fewer bees, less honey.

The Brighton stores are particularly rife with homosexuals in the shagging area, a reasonable rule in mho.

However I will go through with more than 10 items, esp in the big ASDA ones, but not an enourmous amount, likewise I will go to a basket till with a small trolley with 4 items and a toddler restrained, cos it's fun to see the pedants with 6 items in their basket jump up and down.

Another fun till trick is to scan as you go but not pack the last 20 items so you go in the fast track and someone behind complains that you shouldn't be there because your bags aren't packed, the crestfallen look on their face when they realise that they can't go infront is so funny.

fluffyraggies Wed 06-Feb-13 09:08:57

Still LMAO @ homosexuals.

Sorry - but that was hillarious.

mademred Wed 06-Feb-13 09:17:06

Yanbu.gets my goat everytime.and the stupid people that take a weeks shop to the bloody kiosk ffs! These people are just ignorant and selfish.

YABU. It's far more selfish when people with a few items take FOREVER to scan them because they are letting their children do it. and giving a running bloody commentary of every single item they are scanning. I can scan a small trolley load of stuff quicker than that.

YABU - it is SELF service. In our local supermarket on the self service tills it does not say anywhere about how many items you can have.

So, if I want to scan my whole weeks shop (I wouldn't by the way, I think the cashiers are quicker) I am entitled to.

Jamillalliamilli Wed 06-Feb-13 09:41:56

Viva the assistant's supposed to keep an eye out, which is why they can get peed off or auto help you without checking when you’re having problems, because they need to be watching someone else and you’re a distraction, and some people apparently work it with decoys. They can find themselves under pressure if a lot of stock goes through under priced on their shifts.
(my wheelchair sets of security alarms so I’m on first name terms with a lot of security)

They actually film self-scan and review tapes for loss prevention, which I’d been told, but got a demonstration of when a very MC mummy was publically busted putting 3 big bags of vine tomatoes through as red onions for a fraction of the price, and pleaded confusion, only to have her previous ‘confusion’ dates and grocery list announced to everyone else before being marched off, shouting that she couldn’t be taken away, she had children to pick up.

Big bag of Mooli as parsnip lady just got to the end of her shop and found she couldn’t pay until she re-scaned every item because she got ‘you know what you’re doing, Love, and so do I.’ Her protests weren’t believed by the rest of the queue either.
Apparently there’s a phenomenon where confusion only ever results in people under pricing their shopping, never over pricing it. grin

Casserole Wed 06-Feb-13 09:42:16

Weeping with laughter at "I always have a trolley-load of homosexuals. I don't know how we get through them so quickly at our house."

atthewelles Wed 06-Feb-13 10:57:32

I don't think there's a specific rule in my supermarket but I never see people using the self service tills with trollies full of stuff, and I wouldn't do it myself.

With that amount of stuff its quicker to let the shop assistant scan while you pack. Trying to do both yourself would take ages and hold up the queue behind you.

And it drives me maaaad when a check out person at the express till allows people through with dozens of items.

So whilst I try and stop laughing...

Every time Dh buys stuff at the auto serve in B&Q it says it goes off for ages until being reset by a narked looking assistant, and it's always because the item is too light to be picked up. Always happens for at least one thing on a proper shop as well.

Am I missing some trick here?
