“There Is NO MORAL ISSUE With Stealing From A Store That Forces You To Use Self Checkout, Period."

Fascinating new article from the Atlantic, The Banana Trick and Other Acts of Self-Checkout Thievery:

“Anyone who pays for more than half of their stuff in self checkout is a total moron,” reads one of the more militant comments in a Reddit discussion on the subject. “There is NO MORAL ISSUE with stealing from a store that forces you to use self checkout, period. THEY ARE CHARGING YOU TO WORK AT THEIR STORE.”
