Hmm the key to shorter lines would be actually have checkers manning more than three of them at any given time.

The local store pulled the self-check after a year or so. Bastards

I was in Home Depot this weekend and they had the option to use PayPal on their registers. I can't figure out how that would be better than just using a debit/credit card.

You just have to learn when to avoid Walmart. A good time to avoid Wal-Mart is when the state of Virginia refills the EBT cards. People line up across the parking lot waiting for the second their benefits card is refilled. I wouldn't bank on their customers learning how to scan their own items either. Most of those people can't even grasp the concept of birth control.

So, *grocery* stores - which have a general cross section of the population as their customer base - have found the savings in labor is overwhelmed by the increase in theft... but the crowd at *Warmart* isn't going to have that issue?
