If you decide to avoid the queues at the checkout in the supermarket by using the self-service one, the disembodied voice will inevitably pipe up that there's an unidentified item in the bagging area, and you'll need to press 'help'.
You can then be sure that an assistant will take about ten minutes to materialise, while the queues for the proper checkouts diminish rapidly as you stand there like a lemon.
