Talking Self-scans

Comments from a post in bad_service regarding the self-scan lanes at the supermarkets:

chaospearl:
What's really embarassing is that the U-Scam at some stores has a loud computerized voice that announces each item as you're scanning it, along with the price. Some use the brand name of the item, and some use the name of the item itself. That's fine, right?

(swipe) ORANGE JUICE... PRICE... 1.99
(swipe) APPLES... WEIGHT... TWO POUNDS... PRICE... 2.39
(swipe) FRENCH FRIES... PRICE... 3.49

Until you get to:

(swipe) TAMPONS... PRICE... 7.89
(swipe) VAGISIL... PRICE... 3.89
