Making Your World Better, Part 1

One of the reasons that I write this blog is that I want to enlighten my reader's lives.

This is a very practical measure.

The self-scanning machines at the likes of Sainsbury's are excellent for efficiency, I find. However I do not need to be constantly talked through the whole process. I know what I am doing. Please place item in bagging area. Have you swiped your nectar card. Insert cash. Shut the fuck up.

Well, to my delight, I discovered that before you start scanning, you can change the volume - a few clicks can mute the voice so all you hear is the satisfying bleeps as you scan your purchases.

At least at your till anyway. Enjoy :-)
