  • Kitty 2013/01/07 09:56:55
    Usually, if I notice them. They usually have express lanes for ppl with just a couple of items too.

    If I see a friend behind the person, I will let them skip me so I can talk to the friend, but otherwise, no

    Depends on the situation. I let a few people go ahead of me who were obviously on their lunch break instead of making them wait behind nearly 100 indecisive teenagers.
  • rand 2013/01/07 01:39:05
    Yes, when they have many fewer items and I'm in no hurry.

  • dani 2013/01/07 00:18:47

    If I have a lot of groceries and they don't have that many and I just happen to look behind me I ask them to go ahead and they ask if I'm sure and I say yeah of course go ahead you only have 3 while I have a whole bunch. Its no big problem lol.

  • Rocky 2013/01/06 23:17:21

  • Kathulhu 2013/01/06 22:52:04

  • Lulu's Mom 2013/01/06 21:54:30
  • merlinskiss 2013/01/06 21:53:44
    Yes if all they have is one or two items... And I have regretted it on some occasion when none of their 20 or so credit cards worked!

    Yes if I have a lot of shopping and they only have one or two items. I think it would be mean of me not to let them go first.
  • JohnT 2013/01/06 20:24:38
    If I have a whole cart and they only have a couple of items, I offer to let them go ahead of me. I am not in a hurry.
  • Car1u5~PWCM~JLA 2013/01/06 20:17:31
    sometimes if i have alot and they have a little.
  • SIMPATTYCO 2013/01/06 20:16:59
  • TXredhead 2013/01/06 20:14:25
    Many times for different reasons, such as a mom with a crying baby, an elderly woman seeming to be less than steady on her feet, when someone is in a hurry and i'm not.... etc...
  • laydeelapis 2013/01/06 20:10:48
    Like, if I'm deciding what to eat and I don't know yet and they're ready to go.
  • DerekHager 2013/01/06 20:08:02
    Some times. If I don't know what I want to get or if they only have a few items.
  • Dickens 2013/01/06 20:04:30
    ..sure...at the market, when I have 20 items and they have 3, it just seems like the right thing to do..
  • John 2013/01/06 18:12:22
    sometimes in the super marked. If they have only one or two items and I have many and time
  • susan BN-0 2013/01/06 18:07:03

    Yes I have,when they only had one or two Items and I have a whole cart full,and other people have done the same thing for me.
  • OA 2013/01/06 18:06:47
  • CaptnSassy 2013/01/06 18:04:53
    If they aren't using a cart and I have a full one, always.
    It's the considerate thing to do, IMHO.
  • TiffanyBelle 2013/01/06 17:58:44
    the guy who is holding 1 item can alway go ahead of me when my cart is full.
    the lady w/ 3 children grabbing a quick few items can always go ahead of me... i know what a few moments in the store w/ many little ones can mean.

    i try to treat people the way i want to be treated... what comes around goes around... and most of the time it's been returned to me.
    living an impatient life used to make me nuts and when i sought to learn patience my happiness increased.
  • cents-less 2013/01/06 17:53:26
    It's polite if I'm doing the shopping for a whole week & they are getting a loaf of bread.
  • RevJim 2013/01/06 17:51:43
    Yes! For several reasons. If somebody behind me is talking to their friend in front of my, I would let them go ahead of me. If they ask politely, yes. If they have an armful of items for checkout, and I only have one or two things, I let that person go ahead of me. Nice question, and I am happy to answer, even if I get called a wimp for my answer!
