This stems from yet another annoying shopping moment. I'll keep this brief, as it's pretty simple.

Express Checkout Lanes. They are X amount of items or less. Could be 10, could be 20, depends on the store.

Count the items in your basket or buggy or in your arms. If they are more than the Express Checkout limit, go to another non-Express Checkout Lane!

Please, for the love of God, count your items, before I direct you myself the next time I'm behind you in line with my 5 items, 2 kids, and no patience.

You need to consider online shopping for everything. Ha ha. I love your shopping stories. I was in a hurry the other day, darted into a store for milk and sure enough...someone in the express lane with WAY MORE than 20 items and couldn't figure out how she wanted to pay. Now there is a rant....have your money ready when you are standing in line. And I also hate when people are standing in a long line at a fast food restaurant and get to the front only to realize they don't know what their order is. WTF?!?

This is why I don't carry cash when I shop. The bank card is the only money I use anymore. If I find I need cash, I get it ahead of time.

I used to work in a grocery store about the time scanners first came out. I love the Self Checkout lines. I beat the pants off any and ALL Self Checkout shoppers!
