Security at its best

I went to the grocery store tonight and, as I was checking out, I noticed this screen on all the unmanned cash registers in the store:

Now, I'm not in the security industry but I do believe that a "secure mode" is seriously undermined by the subsequent directions on how to EXIT the secure mode.  Right?  I mean, isn't this like posting a sign on your front door that says:

Use key under WELCOME MAT to unlock 

They need to get their money back from whichever company designed this system for them.  But the good thing is that, when they get their money back, they just have to hit the BREAK key to put it in the register . . .

You have to have a password for the break key, so if someone were to want to open the cash register, they'd have to know the password.
