Don't be ridiculous. Balzac is The Human Comedy. Shakespeare is Hamlet.

Also they are getting an app where you won;t even have to go to a cash register but just scan it with you phone. Not sure how you get a paper receipt - maybe you don't need one.

The best thing about this is that the self check out is credit/debit only.

Future generations will never know the pain of waiting in line behind an old person who wants to pay in cash. And with exact change. It always has to be exact change.

Or, God forbid, a personal check..
