Leader O'Cola: Pisses me off much more when cashier opens new register, says "next in line" and the last person in line runs over and is allowed to be first.
My Conscience: cart corrals and x items or less lines are 2 of the worst things ever invented. I don't use either.
aerojockey: This won't work. As soon as you put a price on cheating, you not only legitimize it for the assholes, you also open it up to barely assholes, assholes with shame, and literalist non-assholes. For instance, if there's a 10% surcharge on purchases of over 15 items, and there are these huge lines in the regular aisles and a short express line, I'd happily take the 10% surcharge in some cases.
pup.socket: You need a social credit system with geolocation, obviously. Once assholes start getting voted down and begin losing their homes to pay the anti-social behaviour fines, everything will improve in a week.
MelGoesOnTour: Leader O'Cola: Pisses me off much more when cashier opens new register, says "next in line" and the last person in line runs over and is allowed to be first.If I have a pet peeve, that's the one. I seem to be the only one who lets people go in front of me but that's never reciprocated. My revenge? If I get the chance, I'll put a random item in their cart (or on the conveyor belt). The smaller and more expensive the better, if possible.
bfh0417: Some Junkie Cosmonaut: theflinx: In the stores here the 15 items or less lines the cashiers will call you over if there is no one in line, even if you have more than 15 items, making it awkward if someone comes up behind you who did not see this happen.I don't remember the wording but they recently changed the lines to allow for more than some set in stone amount of groceries. basically negating the x items or less line.Some stores also allow the disabled to use 15 items or less lanes with more items, on the basis that standing around in a long line isn't going to do them any good at all. Been caught up in that one as the person getting yelled at, when it was the store waving me over there (with good reason.) Always best to check and see if your asshole is really an asshole - there might be something else going on here. If they really ARE an asshole, feel free to kick them in the head or similar - but sometimes they're streamlining the entire store process (and sensibly) - it just happens to not be ideal for you personally./general you, not you as in FlinxSo, the disabled can break rules....lol. I thought everyone just wanted to be equal. Bullshiat. Every body want a way for special treatment.
LaChanz: Yeah, I don't really care how many items I have. If the cashier is willing to ring up my 50 items in the express lane then screw you,
Puffy McBooze: J.R. 'Bob' Chinaski: Love to think of ways to help Walmart out on their takeover of all grocery stores.That's the spirit, we should really just have one corporation./I feel dirty
We Ate the Necco Wafers: Someone tried to stop me at the 9 items or less line because I had two six packs of beer.
