    Not that anyone really pays attention to that rule anyway!

    True story, GoldenRoya, I was in the fast lane at the supermarket. One of the shoppers had a full cart and the clerk calmly asked her to go to a new line while explaining the rule. The shopper came back with the store general manager in tow. When she demanded the clerk be fired the manager smiled and said “Hi, Brenda. This woman rude to you?”. The clerk smiled and said “Hi, Dad.”
    It went downhill for that rude shopper very rapidly after that.

    Never argue with someone who can turn you into a newt.
    (I .. got better.)

    Welcome to my world. I work as a clerk in a grocery store coffee bar. There is about a square foot of room on my counter and people with large orders are determined to check out with me. To hell with all the people behind them who just want a cup of coffee.

    If the sign says, “12 items or less” and I have 13 items…I go to another register.

    A few years ago, I told the cashier on another lane that when the stores first created the express lane, they put the fastest cashier there.
    She chuckled and said, “Now they put the slowest cashier there, figuring it evens out.”

    Another time at another store, the cashier said to the next chasier over, “(The manager) told me if I was late 3 times, he’d put me on the express lane again, and I was late 3 times, so I’m back here for the next 3 days.”

    I always get into trouble with a bunch of bananas and a six-pack of beer, and then I want the M&M’s on the impulse shelf.

    I wish there was a demand for my skills. I can choose the slowest line every time, whether in the fast check out line, the regular line or even at the bank line.

    Once when I was in the express line at Walmart I counted 68 items for the person ahead of me. When it was finally my turn I commented to the cashier who said, “We can suggest they go to another line, but we can’t refuse to serve them!”

    My pet peeve (at every store) is when I’ve been in line for a long time and some cashier calls out, “I’ll take someone over here” and the last person to get in my line rushes over. The cashiers should always say, I’ll take the next person in line." Some do.

    Sometimes, that works.

    I read in Reader’s Digest about a woman who went to the express lane with more than six 12 items…when she got to the register the cashier sweetly asked her “Which twelve items would you like to purchase?”

    Not only did I have the slowest cashier in the store, but the dingbat ahead of me needed a separate receipt for a package of post-its and a box of paper clips.
