Yeah....

That anyone is shopping at a store these days...

1)Open app
2)Confirm regular items
3)Peruse the offers
4)Check out the new stuff

Place order. Delivery comes driver brings shopping into kitchen in nicely colour coded plastic bags.

Piss easy and about 25mins of 'work'

Compare.

1) Drive to supermarket
2) Park car
3) Push trolley around the store
4) Place items in trolley
5) Go to til
6) Remove items from trolley
7) Bag item
8) Return items to Trolley
9) Walk back to car
10) Transfer items to car
11) Drive home
12) Transfer items from car to home

Fucking hours of your life gone, add kids it's worse, add a domestic over fuck all and I am surprised there are not more police at supermarkets.

So inefficient and last century like travelling by canal instead of roads.

The robots will take over and be just like the two previous posters. No-one will know.

So everyone in history has said ever from the Luddites to Alvin Toffler we will all be working for robots, 'cert it NEVER happens because humans and capitalism has a happy knack of creating new jobs for people to do.

Unemployment is at a record low remember before you post such feelings led rubbish.

The data is not on your side for such a ridiculous claim.

My comment was actually about attitudes to people that don't fit your stereotype. D-E-V-I-A-T-E. D-E-S-T-R-O-Y.

...capitalism has a happy knack of creating new jobs for people to do.

Nail. Head. Happy knack, eh? If capitalism could eliminate most jobs, it ought to, not find other boring repetitive make-work for the masses.

People need work to live happy lives.

I could have retired a couple of years ago - didn't work for me even though I would have been very comfortable.

I now know I will work for at least another 15 years.

Do you even know anything about the work you label?

Yeah I know they were self centred enough to put themselves out on camera bleating about their middle class tribulations.

The article was quite informative about both in the partnership so I know more about them than most.

Is that "most" or "most of those who chose to read the article so they could be negative about it"?

What you're probably not familiar with is that in Aldi there is practically no space for scanned goods to go inbetween scanning and packing. The usual UK supermarkets have a decent sized space where scanned goods can reside until they're packed. Aldi doesn't. You're left with no choice but to frantically scoop your goods back into your trolley and to go elsewhere to sort your packing after you've paid. I guess it reduces the time people spend at the till, but perhaps not by much.

Anyway, try buying a trolleyful of stuff in Aldi next time you get chance.

Just found it funny the hysterical reaction by some when a business wants to improve it's efficiency. To the best of my knowledge they pay their staff more than the likes of Tesco, sounds like a win win we should be applauding, even if it does mean a few fuckers having to move a bit faster to keep up with the checkout op.

When the robots start buying the groceries they will easily be able to keep up with the packing.

There are some human shoppers, however, who don't want to take part in X-Factor games.

Productivity must surely mean slightly more than whizzing shopping off the end of the belt.

Patients on trolleys flying out of A&E much too quickly for ambulance crews to catch and load them, eh? That's what we need.
