Can those automated checkouts in supermarkets be classed as robots?  If so I've lost all sympathy for Call-Me-Kenneth's army.  Would that they all had but one neck.

Yeah - I just came back from the supermarket and the robot gave me 90p in four twenties and five two pence coins.  What kind of service is that?  It should obviously have given me a fifty and two twenties.

I just prefer it when a person does it.  Soon that will be a thing of the past.

I do believe that looks the better option.

There were a few people 'working' in the supermarket in question.  I think I was lucky in dealing with the robot to be honest...
