    Default Scanning your own items at supermarket

    Three tins of tuna make one beep.

    Expensive mushrooms get scanned as carrots.

    Are these mistakes acceptable?

    You live in Australia. Our machines don't make those mistakes (usually because they are configured in shoplifters live near here mode) and complain about any discrepancy.

    Best thing about those supermarket scanning machines is at the end when they say, "don't forget to take your bag with you", and I turn to the missus and say, "come on, love!"

    It's possible to break the Sainsbury's self checkout simply by inserting your credit card before scanning your Nectar card. It then refuses to authorise your card. If you then insert cash, it refuses to give you change and hangs completely. Works every time. I patiently explained the exact sequence of events required to reproduce the problem to gormless "How can I help you?" youth, but, as he failed to take notes, I fear that my detailed bug report may never make it to the techies who could possibly fix the problem.

    You do know that you have to choice a payment type and then press cancel before paying to get ALL discounts applied correctly. Yes, its a known bug and yes I've complained a few times but even trading standards can't be arsed to deal with my complaint.

    So you're asking if theft is acceptable? Simple answer no.

    I was banned from sainsburys for shop-lifting pick'n'mix, I got caught twice. I told them I had an addiction and can't walk past the open trays. I'm not allowed in tesco metro holborn either.
