With Mayo AND McDonald's rolling out kiosks, I started thinking about all the places in town that could use a "self-checkout line."

ALL the gas stations:

Sure, you can pay for your gas outside, but when you want a snack... When it comes to cashiers, you get one of two things. Seriously, there is no happy medium. You either get the person that could care less that you're there OR the person that will try and up-sell you on everything. Plus, there may be 5 people working, but only one at the register. I always get stuck behind someone that wants to scratch off their lottery tickets at the counter (please don't do this!).


I mean, I can't be the only person that goes in for just a couple things, and then gets stuck behind several customers with a cart full?


I know, I know, another rare "I just need one thing" kind of a place, BUT it does happen every once in awhile. While their employees are super fast, it would be nice to be able to check out on our own instead of standing in that often times, crazy long line.

I hear they have the computers at other locations. Time to bring them to Rochester please and thank you.


Petco employees have a lot to do while they're working, and there aren't that many of them, so it would be awesome if I could just check myself out when I'm ready to go.
