I made the foolish error of going through the B&Q self scan with gardening stuff today.

Please leave it in the trolley... she whispers... then there's a 15 second wait for the scanner gun to start working again, at which point she screams PLEASE SCAN AN ITEM if I don't react within the first 10ms of the scanner turning back on again.

Truly woeful system. Now card only (not contactless tho because it's still 2010 in B&Q) as the cash thing was so shit it kept jamming up.
I went in yesterday having downloaded their app to see how useful it is.

The self-serve till refused to scan my B&Q club card contained within the app... :?
Did you use the gun or the fixed scanner? Only the guns can scan phones. They replaced them all specifically for this purpose (they went from white to black)

Tried gun first (because I had a strong suspicion about what you said being true), then fixed scanner.

Oddly, it would scan the bar code from within the Google Pay app, just not theirs...

As the other straight guy on here, I like it.

We'll probably both get banned though!

using the curves of the logo rather than it just being straight stripes makes it look like they've actually put more than 3 seconds thought into it.

I recently discovered the woman who led the content design of gov.uk and making that all readable went on to work on the co-op internal sitess

https://colleagues.coop.co.uk/

apparently the most important thing for co-op staff is that they are paid every four weeks, not monthly, meaning they have 13 pay days a year on odd dates. So what is the very first thing on the homepage?
