If you scan a banana on the self-checkout tills, it requires the approval of a shop assistant. So I input them as carrots to save time and money. And today, in my boldest move yet, I didn't even pretend they were carrots. I scanned the rest of my shopping, paid for it, then simply picked up the banana and left the store.

It is funny how far companies go to incentivize people to do the wrong thing.
