At the risk of sounding like the moaning old git I know I am...

Arse...

It's all ruined, Tesco have broken 24 hour shopping. New policy, self service checkouts only.

I hate self service checkouts.

If you're on your own and trying to do even a medium amount of shopping with no one to pack the belt gets jammed up. I was running back and forth trying to sort out the log jam of groceries and deal with stupid error messages from the machine.

Just when you think you've got the knack of scanning the barcodes it stops, then as you try again and again and again... suddenly it beeps twice and adds two items to your bill.... Grrrr...

The wretched machine keeps telling you things like "unexpected item in the bagging area" while you're trying to concentrate on scanning the next item. You check the previous "unexpected item" and it's on the screen... so what it's on about I have no idea.

I have no confidence that I'm really paying for all the items I am taking. Equally, I'm not sure I am paying twice for some items.

The reason I shop at night is I liked the more relaxed experience due less people... Tonight's shopping trip proved thoroughly unpleasant.

I wasn't the only person who was having problems. Everyone was having to get help from staff.
