Express Lane

I was in the six item express lane at the store quietly fuming. Completely ignoring the sign, the woman ahead of me had slipped into the check-out line pushing a cart piled high with groceries.

Imagine my delight when the cashier beckoned the woman to come forward looked into the cart and asked sweetly, 'So which six items would you like to buy?'

Wouldn't it be great if that happened more often?

  1. oh that would be great. With my luck the lady would have said they were all separate orders and paid for her stuff 6 items at a time

  2. If the consumer is undisciplined, this is what happens. I would like many more such cashiers.
    Have a great day!

    1. Some people only think of themselves. They are most rude when they do this, but their time is way more important than ours. :)

  7. Oh, I love that! I get annoyed when I see someone getting 8 items.

    In this case if the cashier said nothing I think I would, "Excuse me, is this the 150 item or less line?"

  8. Or you can shop at Publix where there is never a line because they always have every lane open. And shipping truly IS a pleasure. That's what I do. :P

    Have a splendiferous day! big hugs xoxo

    1. They don't have Publix here. You go to Costco and Walmart you wait a week to get checked out. :)

  9. That is a great check out lady. Glad she did that. Some stores do need to have more lanes open. Sandee, you and Zane have a fantastic day.

  12. That's funny but sadly a cashier would probably get fired for saying it. But we fellow shoppers could say it if we have the guts. LOL

    1. A lot of people don't think the rules apply to them. Look at our corrupt government. :)

  17. Oh how I wish every cashier would do that! I abide by the rules and expect others to do the same. Period.

    Big hugs, honey...

  19. Ha ha ha YES YES YES!!!!! I am always so paranoid that if I have 13 items I don't go in that line. Fair is fair!!! Woo hoo!

  20. I would love to see that too. I would love to see a six item checkout lane. Here, most are 20.

    Have you ever had your basket piled high, waiting in the regular lane when a cashier from the express lane waves you over? I have, and it never fails that half-way through, someone comes up behind me with a handful of items and glares at me.
