    That is straight out of a country song:

    Actually, it is, if you are only shopping every couple of weeks, and you count items individually and buy a lot of loose items (2 avocados, a melon,a baggie of fresh green beans, 2 apples, 2 kinds of lettuce) That’s already half the 15 item allotment and I haven’t even finished in the produce department yet.
    .
    But the point of my comment isn’t the number of items.
    I would gladly have gotten into a regular line, even if that meant standing behind 2 or 3 people with shopping carts filled to overflowing.
    .
    My point is, the stores don’t manage their lines properly.
    If they’ve got 3 or 4 people standing in line at a single full-service register and one (or sometimes two) empty ‘quick’ lines they need to re-think their service priorities.
    .
    I’m the kind of person who uses my turn signal even when no one else is around, I don’t leave my car standing illegally at the curb to be close to the door instead of parking in a correctly designated spot and I don’t get into a line that says 15 or less if I have more items unless a cashier invites me to do so.
    .
    It is embarrassing to be waved over to the quick line with too many items only to have someone buying just a few things come up behind you and start bitching.
    .
    If the cashier hasn’t already started, I usually ask the person arriving behind me with just one or two things to go first.
    Often they do. Sometimes they don’t.
    .
    Self check-out is really the way to go for some people.

    It’s frustrating when you have maybe 30 items but the store has only 2 registers open -an empty quick line for 15 or less and another register which has a line of people with full carts, kids running around, food stamps, coupons, etc.
    The quick line cashier sees you waiting with your smallish order and offers to ring you up.
    Only then, as you are being checked out, someone arrives with just a couple of items and complains because you are in the wrong line.

    Poncho nose.

    You erred in the right direction – nothing tragic about that.
    Erring the other way leads some to far more tragic consequences.

    And, his other Indian cousin – Masala.
    Don’t forget her.

    If Koko is like ours, he sheds year round.

    It’s dead, whatever it is. Rotting meat is a smell that lingers.

    But, he’d make a great first responder.
    It was only after Mom took over that Red crashed.
    An adrenaline spike can cause that.

    Absolutely agree with you. Often it is an administrator or (sometimes) a teacher who perpetuates the bullying – indirectly or directly.
    As several other people have commented above – children learn by example.
