After Coles installed security cameras at self-serve check-outs to stop people stealing items this mum has something to say….
Recently Coles ramped up its security by installing cameras at the self checkout in up to 12 supermarkets in Melbourne.
The cameras act as a deterrent by displaying the footage collected from the camera directly above the checkout monitors.
Shoppers can see themselves scan their items but this mum wasn’t having it!
“Coles, this is the face I pulled when I finally noticed your new TV screens above the self serve checkouts.
I wish I could say I was trying to scan my avocados as bananas, or put my exotic out-of-season fruits through as an iceberg lettuce, but alas, I was just trying to get one pink paper bag to put a party gift in.
You know if you’d just left Carol on the checkouts, this Big Brother approach would be unnecessary? Don’t you? There would be no unexpected items in the bagging area and no flashing attendant light because the barcode on the weigh-by-the-kilo fresh produce triggered a false scan and no awkward wrangling of round things on that stupid fucking weigh tray.
I know you’re watching me. But all you got was me hissing at my kid because I wasn’t buying a kinder egg and feeling like there was way too many people in close proximity to me when I was about to enter a two hour long kids party at Inflatable World. And probably a high res close-up of a bat in my cave.
Just another reason to shop at Aldi_australia
What do you think of the security cameras?
