Hey, so a rant. I do grocery shopping a lot. I'm responsible for five humans and two furry babies. And they eat. Every day... 

It's OK though, because I like grocery shopping. Especially if I'm on own. I listen to my podcast and take my time going through the aisles, it's perfect relaxation. Except for the cash thing at the end. Watch out, the rant's coming out:

WHY OH WHY DO WE HAVE TO PUT THINGS IN A CART AS WE SHOP THEN TAKE THEM OUT OF THE CART TO PAY THEN BACK IN THE CART TO BRING TO THE CART THEN OUT OF THE STUPID CART AGAIN AND INTO THE TRUNK??? WHY CAN'T WE JUST SCAN OUR CART AND PAY FOR WHAT'S IN IT???

OK, OK. I get that some things have to be weighed and such. Some items don't have easy places to put bar codes on them. Fine. I wouldn't mind removing a few things out of the cart to weigh. That's cool. But the laundry detergent? The toilet paper? The cereal boxes? The frozen pizza? The bags of milk? Come on. Do I really have to handle these things so many times?

Well, the wonderful folks at Amazon (bless their beautiful electronic hearts) are coming up with just what I need. A checkout-less store! YES!!!

OK, so it's not perfect yet. It's just a mini-mart, not a full-service grocery store. It definitely would have to be scaled up to work for people like me. But come on, it can be done, right? While I'm still alive, I mean? Pretty please?
