Self-Checkout Chaos

leave a comment »

It was saturday night, I went to the groceries to pick up some chips, drinks and dessert. I was hopping my trip to be in-n-out in 5min. I was in good mood, smiling roaming around the ailes and checking out interesting people 😉 I got my items and headed to the counter. Two out of six counters were open and I always wonder when are all the counter ever open. Then I thought to give a shot to self-checkout.

I am not a big fan of self-checkout. There is no human interaction there unless you mess up something or want bags for your items. But still I has only three cases so I thought it will be super quick. But to my dismay I was obstructed by two interesting people who must have spent at least 20min there.

First of all self-checkout should not be for old people. They just spend hours there trying to figure out what to do next. Second people with hundred items should not be allowed. They not only spend hours scanning their items but also filling them in their bag. Unless they are done filling their bags no other person and move on.

So one person ahead of me shopped like its the end of the world (or may be she has big family, no idea). She took 15min to finish scanning her items. After she finished I thought good its my turn now. But oh no scumbag machine had a scumbag plan. Unless the person before you removes all the items from the counter the second person cannot proceed. So I had to wait for another 10 min for her to finish loading her items in her cart.

 On the other self-checkout machine a weird looking guy was scanning his items but could not hear the machine shouting “please remove the items” as he keep scanning the same thing again and again. A lady from the counter had to shout at the person to hold back and let the machine rewind.

So basically my pleasant journey to the grocery quickly turned out into a frustrating one. But never the less it is always fun to see interesting memes online and in knowing that you are not the only one 🙂

Happy shopping everyone !!

Movie Review: London Paris New York (2012) [3.5/5]

leave a comment »

In every romantic movie there is Boy and there is a Girl. They are shown living a very different life and then serendipity strikes. They are shown in deep intellectual and witty conversation with each other which mainly involves girl complaining about everything and guy just makes fun of her. Eventually they fell in love over the course of 20min reel where they have sang a song on London bridge and hummed the beats near Eiffel tower. Well this all happens in this movie as well.

Being a realistic I only wonder how a guy meets a nice beautiful cute girl in a plane who is willing to go out with him on city tour for whole day when she missed her connecting flight. And it only happens in movies that the guy charmed his way into making the girl fall in love with her in 24hr cinematic hours.

Lets keep this aside and talk about the movie. All above mentioned situations happens in this movie but they are shown in fun way. The core idea of the subject might be adapted (or copied) from the bestselling book “One Day” but still it is a fresh and feel good movie.

 

 

 

 

Plus:

  • Music is very soulful and easy on ears. Ali Zafars’s singing and writing is very smooth and melodious.
  • Locations. No wonder movie title is good enough for explanation.
  • Pretty good performance by the leads. Not perfect but good.
  • Screenplay was not boring and dialogues were very basic day to day lines.

Minus:

  • There were ups and downs. Not very gripping storyline.
  • Drama was not quite intense.

Well this movie is recommended for the couples who wants to sit home relax and just want some fresh movie to spice up their evening.
I shall give 3.5/5
