It is 2008 and self-service tills have arrived in the local supermarket, bringing with them a raft of problems. Edie reckons it is just a matter of time before there are job losses; Janice tries to concentrate on her knitting, which is a second source of income; whilst Kelly has found God and wants everyone else to join her. Suddenly, there is yet another case of “till rage”, in the shape of distressed customer, Dawn. What follows is a bitter-sweet indictment of the advance of technology and how it has made the already difficult lives of these women much harder.
