A couple hours ago as I paid for the ingredients for dinner up at Safeway, I asked the checker (who is one of the mid-level managers at this location) about the self check-out lanes and she concurred with the comments in The Atlantic article cited above by member catsp.
She said that all too common are the instances where a customer switches price labels, or tries to run a $10.00 off coupon through twice, or tries to slip a 14-pound standing rib roast through as a $1.99 loaf of bread. To quote her verbatim: "I've seen it all."

If you go over to Jo-Ann fabrics here (4104 Tacoma Mall Blvd, Tacoma, WA 98409) be prepared to wait at least 45 minutes in line for cut fabric, and then another 15-30 minutes waiting in line to check out.
I've found that the large parking lot outside their front door is a great place for taking naps in the front seat of my truck while waiting for somebody to pick up odds and ends for tutus. wink.gif

Ski, it was Jo Ann Fabrics but in E. Wenatchee.  The cutting was fast, but the checkout was stalled forever!   I don't go there anymore.

What's especially fun about sock puppets is that you can make each one unique and individual, so that they each have special characters. And they don't have to be human––animals and aliens are great possibilities
