پادکست شماره 1035 – ESL Podcast 1035 – Using a Self-Checkout Machine

Claudia: We’re done, right? Let’s get in this cashier line

Raul: No need. This store has self-checkout machines

Claudia: I don’t know. I think it would be easier going through a cashier line. 

Raul: Using the self-checkout will be much quicker. Let me show you. All you have to do is scan the barcodes on each grocery item. 

Claudia: There are no barcodes on fruits and vegetables. 

Raul: All you have to do is put them on the scale and find the product on the touch-screen

Claudia: You look. I’ll start bagging

Raul: Wait! You’re supposed to wait until everything is scanned before removing items from the bagging area to put in bags. Oh no, now there’s a “see attendant” message on the screen. 

Claudia: What do we do now? 

Raul: We wait for the attendant to clear the error and void the transaction. Then we start again. 

Claudia: Great. You’re right. This is much faster. 

Raul: It is if you know what you’re doing. 

Claudia: I’ll tell you what. I’ll take half of our groceries and stand in line and you use the self-checkout. We’ll see which is faster. 

Raul: That’s a sucker bet. I have no doubt that I’ll be done before you are. 

Claudia: I’m not worried. The last one out the door makes dinner. 

Raul: You’re on. Just remember that I like my steak well done
