Do You Pay Express?

In some stores here, especially the very big and busy ones, waiting in line in order to be able to pay can sometimes be a pain. Especially if you have a tired, hungry and whining baby in tow and you have a lot of stuff to pay for, waiting in line is that last thing you would ever do. Sometimes, tempers rise and sometimes, cashiers can be too slow.

That's why I try to avoid long lines whenever I can and choose to pay in the express lanes, where I can scan my purchased items myself using a hand-held bar code scanner like the Symbol LS2208. At first, I didn't know how to use them but they are actually very easy. You just hold the scanner, point it to the bar code and then press the trigger-like button. The LED light will indicate if the product has been scanned properly. RED if it is not yet scanned. GREEN if it is already scanned. Just a few minutes into scanning my items and I am already done. Wow, that was fast!
