Rite of passage
I hate the introduction of self-scan checkouts for a number of reasons. It's impersonal, it duds someone out of a job and it's just plain rude to make me do that crap myself. It has also removed an awkward rite of passage that should be experienced by every pimple faced teenager. Allowing these kids to zap their own condoms through the self-scan checkout at the supermarket is crap. They should have to go to chemists and make that awkward transaction face to face. It builds character and it no doubt provides amusement for people who work at chemists.
