“Self-checkouts are for teenagers buying their first condoms”

Teenagers used to be embarrassed making their first condom purchases at drug stores. Now, however, there is self-checkout.

“No self checkout was created for every 17 year old boy buying condoms for the first time” was posted on Twitter by Bryce on March 8, 2011. “Remember how crazy embarrassed you were the first time you bought condoms? Just think, kids today get to use self-checkout lanes. Bastards!!” was posted on Twitter by Jonathan Oldfield on April 23, 2011. “Self checkouts are saving thousands of teenagers from the embarrassment of their first condom purchases” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on February 27, 2019.

I think self checkout was invented by a guy who had to buy tampons or maybe a kid buying their first condoms
