How do you act in long checkout lines?

Robin 2012/12/12 16:25:06
I stand there, patiently, making conversation with anyone willing. I have no negative thoughts, and never a rude comment.
I take my cart and smash it over the heels of the slow poke in front of me.
I breathe really loud, make horrible comments about the person ahead of me to anyone and everyone.
I hop foot to foot, and loudly repeat "I have to poop, please let me make it" over and over.
There are no checkout lines at Amazon.com (you sang that dot com, didn't you?_

How do you act in long, slow, checkout lines?
I am pretty sure it isn't the same way you act in church.

    I use the self checkout whenever possible, but if I do have to wait in a long line, I will usually check email or read whatever book I am reading on my kindle

    I stand there patiently on the surface but I always try to get a lane next to a closed one so that if they open that register I'll be the first they shoo in. Works more often than not too.

    Tim, if you knew how many people I have killed in my mind while standing in a long line.. you would have a whole new opinion of me LOL If I don't have my kids with me it isn't so bad.. I can act normal. But all it takes is one little finger to touch sometning...my button has been pushed lol

    I wouldn't think any less highly of you than I already do my friend. I feel the same exact way when someone argues with the clerk over coupons or breaks out the checkbook after an entire cart full of stuff. In my mind I'm screaming- you could have filled out everything except the amount while you were waiting!! Ugh lol

    i stand and wait patiently.
    it's entertaining to witness the extent to which
    some people express their dellusional sense of self
    importance in lines.

    what irritates me in line isn't the other people... it is my kids. I have 6. They see that stuff in the checkout aisles that they put there on purpose and start begging and pleading... that is what sets me off. I wish all stores had those 'safe for parents' aisles. Not around here anymnore

    It depends. In some stores I just wait it out (Bath and Body or Justice) the rest I will find a manager and ask them if they can open more registers so that I am not being held hostage for my money (walmart or kmart or target).

    I HATE being held hostage for my money when there are other stores in town I can go to. So, either they find a way to get me out faster, OR they put away the contents of my wagon.

    that is irritating.. you look to your left then your right. there are like 50 registers, and 3 are opened with lines backed up to the loading docks

    Until more people revolt and leave full wagons sitting there, it will not change.

    But I have no problem with walking out and leaving a full wagon. I am NOT going to be a hostage.


    In Bath and Body one of us gets in line, one of us shops, that way we aren't stuck in the lines forever.

    Wal Mart is a place thatI really don't like. They're the cause of long lines because they refuse to hire the amount of people need for there stores. So as I tell any of them cash spent anywhere. You can provide the service you don't get my money.

    I avoid busy shopping days as best I can. But say if I go to an auto parts store or some place where the checker answers the phone on my time. I'll lay everything I was going to buy out on the counter and walk out, never to return. If the checker on the phone covers the phone mouthpiece and asks if I'm ready to make purchase, I tell 'em to have the guy on the phone pay for it, continuing on my way.

    I rarely go into a store with any kind of lines anymore. I do use Amazon for many, many things. When I used to stand in line, I was pretty much the "A" answer. I'm a pretty patient person.
