Old People vs. The Machines

Round One: The Self Checkout Lane (Home Depot, circa 2004)



My brother: Let's just go through the self checkout lane! It'll be faster.

My Dad:
But I can't do that! I need change!

My brother: ...It actually will give you change...

My Dad: Oh...

Can't you just sort of imagine him leaning awkwardly into the touch screen and saying slowly, "Hello, machine! I'd like to purchase these items, please!"? I know--KIND OF adorable.
