If I go to self serve, DO NOT help me!

I go to self serve at the grocery store a lot.  With only one kid still at home (and rarely home being a high school senior), i don't buy a lot.  I'm not interested in chit chat.  I want to bag my groceries MY way.  Yet, when I go during the day, it's pretty empty, so clerks come up to "help" me.

I don't NEED or want the help.  Really.  I get that they're being "nice" - but I honestly prefer to do it myself!

I agree! It's especially frustrating when they come over to "help" with produce and have to ask what it is and then how to spell it. I buy my produce regularly enough that I know what each bag contains and what the code is.

I hate self check out in general. If I swipe my rewards cards, use coupons, if it doesn't sense enough weight in my bag...someone always has to come over and fix it. If they ever worked right, I'd use them more.

Buy a cheap pair of earbuds, plug them into your phone and wear them as you are checking out. Pretend you are in your own world and don't acknowledge them..
Or
Just do what I do and tell them that I prefer to do it myself..hence why I am in SELF CHECKOUT
