What's Wrong With People in Checkout Lines? Part II
By Johnny Betts

I really think that when most people get in a checkout line they check their brains at the front of the line first. As I described in vivid detail previously, it's bad enough when people do everything they can to make a line as slow as possible. But now there's another checkout line epidemic that is running rampant across the country.

If a lane is "10 items or less", then why do people still insist on having more than 10 items? A while back I was behind some woman who had about 16 items. The cashier said she had too many items and the woman got mad and defensive about it. "I've already been in line for 5 minutes! It won't hurt you to let me go!" The cashier should've said, "Yeah? Well it won't hurt YOU to learn how to read and follow the rules, Chester." Now I can sometimes understand if someone has 1 or 2 extra items -- some people may genuinely not realize it, but 6 extra items is just excessive. And then to argue with the cashier who is merely trying to do her job?? WHAT'S WRONG WITH PEOPLE?

If I had a store like that I'd say, "I'm sorry, but if you're not smart enough to follow our rules then I don't want your business. Goodbye."
