Part of me feels like this is obvious. And I found the experience of buying a single protein bar at the store in San Francisco as very odd.. It was a small convenience store, more like an airport kiosk, and the security guard was overly friendly. I felt like I was in an art exhibit. It felt closer to shoplifting an item from a dodgy 7-11. But at my local big chain supermarket at home in Australia, I realize that I don’t chat to a human being when I check out. I scan my items with an annoying machine that can never weigh things properly and I feel like it’s paranoid I’m going to trick it and mistag something. So in that case, I would prefer to walk out.
