Esroc: Excessive, but still. Fark those people. The other day I tried to buy a single tube of toothpase and the lady at the 20 items or less isle had a cart full, a check book, AND broke up the items into three groups with three separate checks for some damn reason.Sometimes I wish I could get into the heads of these people and try to understand their thought process.
Radioactive Ass: Qwuix: When did 20 items become "express"? I thought it was always ten.My local store has it at four. Cash only. Plus it's where they do most of their lottery ticket sales and cash payouts. It's either packed with a bunch of old people doing lottery or sparsely populated with 1 or 2 people at most if not empty. But it's almost always open.I've used it when it was empty for more than 4 items a few times. They didn't care as long as there wasn't a line and it all fit into 1 bag.
LittleSmitty: At my local Walmart, the express lane is almost always worked by the most ancient person in the store. Express lane my ass. The woman is so slow you can go through the regular checkout behind an elderly cat lady with 100 cans of cat food and a checkbook she doesn't bother to drag out until every can is wrung up, and still get out before the guy buying a pack of Camels in the express lane./hooray run on sentences
zepillin: Are they not the same by tally?
zepillin: So is 5 @ .99, 5 items or one item?
fasahd: I ran in to the grocery for a pack of beer. There was a long line at the ten item express. and customer service counter. So I moved over to the next lane and two people with carts sent me to the front of the line. I'm fortunate. People seem to be polite here.
