    Kinda funny kinda not but today got a display of my low frustration tolerance, ha I find those self service machines at the supermarket a pain, I seem to put my shopping in the wrong area and then someones gotta come over and fix it, but i was thinking these have annoyed me for a while but I gotta learn to slow down and learn the process its probably the supermarket environment aswell not always great for people with anxiety at times. Anyone else share this grievance haha ? I''ll be practising my mindfullness with the machines or just using the old style checkout.

    "hahahhahaha!! totally feel you. Used one this morning myself. The assistant had to intervene as the scale didn't register my 100g rice crackers. Totally feel your pain!! Ah well, machine failure means more human employment, I hope!

    I had only just started scanning my items the other day when the security guard at the exit to the self serve area asked to check my handbag. No-one else, just me. I cried. Full on tears rolling down my face while I tried to get through my shop. Anxiety is a fun friend.

    fred I find the self serve check outs annoying why should I do their work. The assistants will be out of jobs.

    I never use them and demand a person to serve me.
