Fairytale Princess Amy

Did you get the number that I left on the freezer door?

So I stopped on the way home to do some grocery shopping. (I'm either making meatloaf or cottage pie, and I'm really not sure which so I bought fixins for both) Stop and Shop has a new thing. Scan your card, get a scanner gun. Grab some bags and off you go. You scan and bag as you move through the store, then come to the checkout and pay for it. I'm not sure how they prevent theft though. But they're dead fun to use. Way better than self-checkout, which I find annoying because I have to keep moving to stuff around to make the bagging work.

Although it's just another step on the road to robotization of shopping. I should be anti, since I should support cashiers and stockers and baggers getting paid to work, but the truth is, I'd just as soon not have to deal with people too much, so I prefer this.
