Bathia_Mapes: [www.ketchupface.com image 850x620]They have these kid carts at Fred Meyer. They're cute, but they also tend to block aisles more than a standard shopping cart.

SurfaceTension: OK...self checkout question. When there are mutliple stations and/or aisles are all in use, how do you line up? Do you target a specific station or aisle, or do you stand back and wait for the next one to open up? I've seen people do both, though I tend to be one to stand back for the next available.

chevydeuce: Self checkout is fine for one or two items, maybe up to half a dozen....but people who run a weeks worth (or more) of shopping through them at one time need to be kicked squarely in the fun zone..../alcohol too, don't try to buy alcohol at the self checkout, is it really that difficult to understand that?

It's mathematically the quickest system since one slow person won't hold up the people behind them. That's the reason stores like Barnes & Noble have one line for multiple registers.

texdent: Erebus1954: Clerk: 'Would you like to use our self check out?'Me: 'No, I didn't come here to work.'I work at a grocery store, and I hate people like you. If you only have a few items, go to the self check out or even express lane.

theorellior: Pocket Ninja: UNKNOWN ITEM IN BAGGING AREAThe funny thing about those self-serve scanners is that a bunch of grocery stores are removing them now in my area. I guess they didn't see the kinds of efficiency gains they were sold on when they purchased them.
Mr. Coffee Nerves: If you leave your cart in a parking space instead of returning it to the cart corral then clearly your mother was so busy at the homeless shelter trading access to her orifices in exchange for opiates and her brain so addled by a Bhopal soup of sexually transmitted diseases when you were a child that you were raised by the mountain of cat feces that was your bed, school and only friend.You should fashion a vest out of road flares and run screaming toward the national monument most convenient to the crack house you currently use as a base of operations to orally service diseased hoboes.Oh, and hambeasts? Those electric carts are for the frail 90-year-old widow struggling to maintain her balance as she defiantly maintains her independence, not as a delivery vector for your personal daily Festival of Off-Brand Oreos.
