The world is being taken over by cash machines, I’ve suspected this forever, now worthy old Morrisons supermarket is crunching off 2600 human jobs In favour of these metal beings. What a shame, it’s a sweet supermarket compared to most. Always offering bargains, the best and the cheapest Feta cheese this side of the Mediterranean sea. What is happening to our world? Why don’t we humans protect our interests, are we going to roll over like sissies and let these infernal auto-cash thugs take our money and push us around forever?
I hate those bullies, always ordering me about, “please put the item back in the bag” and “please pay for your item”. Gone are the days when you could switch the label on the box for the cheaper item, and hand it to the smiling cashier at the checkout! (Joke! Jeez)
Seriously though, what a shame we are losing yet more of our lovely old-fashioned ways in favour of cost-cutting and resource efficiencies or whatever the jargon is these days. People’s lives are important, people’s lives depend on jobs, therefore jobs are important.
Morrisons is on a drive to “modernise” the way its stores are managed and cutting back layers of management. Fair enough, but when I walk into my lovely local Morrisons for a generous tub of stir fry salad I see only empty checkouts, and I am assailed by the loud, metallic voice of that monstrosity who grabs my money in her greedy mouth. And you can’t ask to see her supervisor either, because even if she took you seriously in that evil metallic brain of hers, they’ve all been laid off, remember?
