Read the quotes from the article. One would assume the same even if her name were Lilly White.

For some reason, I always pick the slowest lane in the store when checking out even though it may seem to be the shortest lane available.  The people in front of me either use checks (seriously, people still use these things?), extreme amounts of coupons, price checking an item and then taking a min or so to decide if they want it, or have excess items in a X items or less line.

There was black smut on the bottom.  That's gross.

Because 12 items are a-ok, while 13 will cause you to be late to the gym.

Reminds me of this time I was working the broiler at KFC....

Dear Fast Food Monthly,
I never thought it would happen to me, but

Mr PsyLord, the shortest line is the fastest not always.

How 'bout a bolt of lightening for folks who take forever to check out.  Like the person in front of me who appears to be using a debit card for the very first time.

/you swipe the damn card, type in your pin and request cash back (or not) - how does that take five minutes?
//also, while you are in line, maybe you want to find your card and coupons?  Why this surprise at the end of the line - 'what, they want me to pay'?
///number of items is not the problem.

Funny, I just read this article yesterday... on Fark.... with a very similar headline, except referring to extreme couponing. Do the green-lighters even read Fark?

Yes it will.  You're not a special snowflake anymore, follow the rules like everyone else.  Also:

www.uber-facts.com = 1 item

bestof.longislandpress.com  = 1 item

files.coloribus.com = 3 items

How the fark are you cooking?

I can tolerate a few more items in the 12 items or fewer lanes. What pisses me off more are people who insist on using self-checkout but have no clue how to use the damned machine.

It's only the line you get in.  You move up and invest 2-3 minutes waiting in that line before it all goes wrong.  That light just starts flashing and there's no one around to help and now all the other lines are built up.  Should you move or wait.  It doesn't matter.  Whichever choice you make will be wrong.

Recently dragged myself into the local WalMart as I need 6volt lantern batteries. As I approached the self checkout lane I saw a family with three full shopping carts using the self checkout machine. None of the WalMart drones said anything or helped.

/Should have taken pictures as proof

I used to notice that, and get frustrated by it.  It took a while, but finally I stopped caring.  Then I didn't even notice anymore.  It was only then that I realized how unhealthy it is to get annoyed over something so insignificant.

Usually I'm not in a rush so it's not that big of deal to me.  I've just noticed that I have the tendency to pick the slowest line possible even when they appear to be moving pretty fast.  Anyway, these days I just let the SO pick the lanes.

Oh, I'd wager at least one looked at another one and said "Hey look at these idiots with 3 full carts going through the self checkout lines" or something close to that.

My biggest problem with those is people have zero farking clue how to queue up for them. Regular checkout lanes, you pick one, take your chances. Its a shiatty system, but its what weve got. With the self checkouts, theres a bank of 4 stacked 2 deep, do you line up for one side, both sides? Logically there would just be one line and you take the next available, but people seem to have an issue with that.

I was in a walgreens the other night, it was very busy, there had been a spill on the main register which is on the right, and the clerk was cleaning that, so checkouts 2 and 3, which are on the left and one behind the other were open, the kid got register one opened back up and took the next person in line, so were standing there, register 1, 2 and 3 are occupied and the lady behind us asks which register were going to. Whichever one frees up next! She seemed really confused by that.

I get stabby when the cashiers get all chatty.  I recently moved to a very small town, and miss the self-check lane and not having to talk to people.  Stop asking me what that vegetable is, or I'm going to do with the produce I buy. Sell me food and let me go home.

I have not quite adjusted to the pace.

The first time I went to the grocery store here, they offered to take my groceries to the car, and I declined. So they followed me to my car to help me put the bags in my car. That seems like an excellent way to get maced.
