People who have basic proficiency in Spanish?

As I'm sure you're aware, the issue isn't the language, per se, the
issue is the inaccessibility of a way to figure out how to make the
incomprehensible speech *stop already*.
There are so many things about those machines that are unsuspected
until they kick you in the metaphoric teeth. I remember the first
time I knocked the bag over and something fell out...the machine
angrily informed me that i had removed something from the bag! and
when I put it back in , I was churlishly informed that I hadn't
scanned the item I'd put in the bag...take it out of there! It took 2
"help" clerks 15 minutes to back out the problem, since the system
also wouldn't let them just shut it down and start over.
If you're that concerned about buyer theft, maybe you should bite the
bullet and hire enough clerks!

Even when you don't have an issue with the language they're 'speaking'
-- or other screw ups -- they're still annoying as all get out.
"PLEASE put -your -it-em-in-the-BAG-ging-A-re-A" after every stinkin'
And they're never as fast as I am.
