Happy Thanksgiving

Hopefully I will be able to come up with a suitable picture for HNT today. It's not that I've run out of ideas, it's just that I took some pictues while I was still in bed this morning, and they looked like shit. So I am not feeling particularly photogenic at the moment. Maybe after I wash my face.

I decided yesterday, once and for all, that I have a love/hate relationship with the self checkout at the grocery store. On one hand, it is fast and easy to use when I am in a hurry and only have one or two things to buy. On the other hand, Other people see it s an opportunity to play "store" and go through with a basketload. Then they can't figure out how to use the damn thing.

I admit that it's frustrating when it insists that you have not placed your items in the bag. But if you can't figure out how to scan your 10 pound ham, then maybe you should go ahead and have someone do it for you.

It never fails that I ge stuck behind the person who fucks up the machine so badly that the attendant has to come over. And you KNOW that attendant is sick of fixing those machines all day.

But I know that the next time I need something, I'm going to walk next door and exit through the self checkout. I like to play "store" too.
