Our nearest Wal-Mart sucks. I mean, it sucked before, but it recently closed down its McDonalds and turned its entire checkout line into self-service. There are four traditional checkout areas, but they're left unmanned and probably only used in special circumstances.
You'd think self-service might make checking out a lot faster. Nope! The lines just to get into the self-service areas were massive, to the point where I just gave up on the sandwich wrap and mini pie I was going to purchase. It's more like a Starve-Mart at this point.
