I’m a big fan of technology.  Tivos, 3D TV, you name it.  And the ATM- blessed altar that frees me from standing behind 30 twits to get to a counter and talk to another twit.  So you can imagine I’m stoked about the self checkout machines.  Take your stuff, scan it, pay and bail.  Brilliant.  Good for the grocery stores too- one checker can oversee four scanning stations at once.  Way cool.  Except… the twit in front of you.  Yes, the slack jawed idiot barely smart enough to cross the street, but early enough to be in front of you.  Unclear on the whole scan/bag process- or that sitting your purse/child/crack on the scale will mess up the works.  Damn, foiled again.  New Law of the Twit- Self Checkouts are great if there’s not one or more twits in front of you- else you best move on or be stuck helping the helpless…
