Apparently, Target cashiers now play a "game" when checking people out at the register. The game scores you based on how fast you're doing your job. This does not sound like a very fun game.
I mean, sure, maybe you're really into challenges and want to win so you become more efficient while having fun and it's all win-win. But boy, this sure does seem like a great way for Target to bully and shame its employees into working as fast as humanly possible. Remember, cashiers: the gamemaster is always watching. And if you lose the game, you lose your job. [Dennis Crowley via Kottke]
