Today was another go-to-the-grocery-store-and-buy-food day. Food Lion has scan your own stuff registers. You simply scan your own stuff, pay, and leave. And if you use a debit card, you can get cash back from your checking account and leave it right at the scanner for all the world to see like me. (Fortunately, I recovered it in time.)
