"Super" Market..

Today I went to the supermarket ASDA in Aberdeen..I had been there many times..but something caught my attention today..when I was about to checkout, I saw that this supermarket has introduced self-checkout machines!!I was surprised to see such a thing..You just need to take your basket, scan all your products, and just pay the bill by yourself..Wow - it was quite fascinating..I was almost like a kid seeing something new :)..The girl who was helping me initially, could see from my face that this method of self service has hit the jackpot..Its good for the company as well..It would reduce the cost of having employees!!I am not quite sure how they are going to handle the "trust" issue..We may buy some vegetables and dont even put an account to that..So not sure how they plan to handle that..But if you have a chance - check these self-checkout machines! They are too good :)..
