    I get the same comments from everybody I know who works in tech support and customer service. And I agree with the reason – these people spend all their time dealing with the worst and loudest (and frequently the most unreasonable) complainers. The rest of the world generally doesn’t interact with support professionals.

    Years of practice and experience. If you do it enough, you’ll develop your own style (which some will love and some will not, so don’t beat yourself up over it.)

    I think they give them away for free at the DMV.

    I read that NYPost article. The accused actually didn’t scan some items. Whether it was a mistake or shoplifting is a matter of opinion, but it’s not like the scanner’s screwup caused her arrest.

    If you don’t confirm that your items scanned (look at the screen or at least listen for the beep), then you’re asking for trouble. It seems pretty obvious to me.

    Shoplifting? Not if you actually pay. Just remember to take your receipt. The worst that can happen is that a staffer may check your bag to make sure it all matches your receipt. As many stores do at the exit, even without self-checkout.

    The biggest problem with self-checkout is that sometimes they decide you need to be randomly audited. Which means the machine stops and you have to wait for a clerk to manually scan all your items. Making it slower than just using a manned lane.

    It’s Marty – a robot used by the Giant chain of grocery stores. It’s not an AI, but it patrols the aisles looking for spills, altering the staff about things that need to be cleaned up. And yes, they put large googly eyes on it.

    Frist product from the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation?

    I love it. Reminds me of Tom Lehrer’s crazy rhyming schemes. Like the introductory verse to "We Will All Go Together When We Go. tomlehrersongS.coM/songS
