We looked over to the lady running it and she's looking away from the area (and her screen) at a baby that's in the express checkouts. We wait for a minute and all she does is go over to the baby and start talking with it's mom about how cute it is and stuff. We wait for another minute and she's still over there so my mom has to go over and get her. After she fixes the problem she just goes back over to the baby instead of staying at her station so she can help people.
It's not something I'd mind if we were the only people using the machines and we came over to them while she was already gone, but since all 4 machines had people on them with more waiting to use them shouldn't she maybe stay at her station so she can do her job, or at least keep an eye on them while she's away?
It's a pretty minor thing I know but it just bothered me, especially since the store was pretty busy at the time.
