Checkout Lines

Didn't wanna hijack Ultranothing's thread but his rant reminded me of another one.


What's up with checkout lines? Why in the hell do people just stand around yacking while they are getting their stuff checked out? Then when everything is scanned it takes them another 5 minutes to find some way to pay for it. Get a grip!!! After you do this one time you should be able to figure out that they expect you to pay when they get finished ringing up your stuff. GET READY!!! Get your damn check out and get everything filled out but the amount, get your credit card, debit card or cash out. If you have correct change that's fine but don't spend ten minutes digging for that one last penny so that you don't have to get four back.


GRRRRR!!!! :mad:

Well I heard beautiful people get to cut in line at the grocery store.

But that's beside the point, I hate waiting in line at a grocery store or in a sex shop, espically in a sex shop because I don't like people seeing me in one. I alway's bring 2 100 dollar bills and pay the damn man.

Yeah, those fuckers. They seriously probably slow you down a cumulative 4 minutes every month. They should pay you for that lost time!!!

Well, I work at a supermarket and well, yeah, people who take there time are irritating. I have to deal with it for more than 4 hours nearly every day and I see people getting irritated at the people in front, me for being too slow, the other people who go to get stuff for them they have 'forgotten' or 'broken', and really, it irritates me.

I don't ask them to line up at my till, also they don't have to be in the damn shop for more than how long the shopping takes so why get angry.

I don't get angry when I line up as I know what the checkout person is feeling!

The one that really gets me is the Self Checkout lines. They're great.

BUT there's always some fucking looser that thinks she should be able to take her 3 carts worth of groceries through it. For fuck's sake if your shit won't fit in that little space they've got laid out you have too many items. At least here, when you scan your stuff you gotta put it in the "bagging area". If you take anything out before you pay the system wigs and an employee has to come over and key in a code to let you continue.

Checkout lanes are made to drive nice ppl like myself nuts and turn us into piss ants. I hate when I go to a place like Wal-Mart and there are like 60 lanes and only two are open. I mean, that is just wrong cuz then u have all 1 billion ppl in there trying to check out all at the same time and then the lines reach all the way back to the pharmacy area where u're forced to look at condoms and vitamins and back braces. Long lines suck.

You know, you're right. What the fuck is up with Walmart. The entire front of the fucking store is checkout lanes and yet only 4 are ever open.

And to top it off, they only sell smokes at ONE of the lanes. Of course it's never open. So if you want to buy a pack you have to stand in some long line, get up to the checker, tell her you want your cancer sticks and THEN catch flack for it. You get some fat fuck store manager throwing you all sorts of atttitude because he had to get off his doughnut eating butt, walk through the store, find some hapless fuck and make her ring me out. The whole time they're giving you that look that says "You're killing yourself. Smoking is BAD. And now you're making me do my job so you can go and kill yourself some more." I KNOW it's bad for me and I don't FUCKING CARE. (Well, I do but I'm not going to admit that to them.) All I want is a pack of smokes. You fucking decided to not sell them at every register, you fucking decided not to have the ONLY register that does sell them open so stop giving me shit, the pinacle of your career is working at fucking Walmart.

God damnit, now I am pissed off.

:mfinger: Fuck Walmart.

:mfinger: Fuck Walmart. I don't go to the place unless I absolutly have to. Everything about Wal Mart sucks except for the qty of stuff that they have. Prices aren't even that good if you check around.

We have a thing called fast track. You walk around with a barcode scanner and scan your items as you put them in your trolley (cart) as you go. When you're done you plug it in to a machine, put your credit card in and away you go.

Oh hell yah!!!! Every god damn time I go to walmart it's something else...

One day let's go to the self checkout because hey, I only have 16 items and the whole walmart is pilled of people in long-ass lines and there's only 2 people in each of the self check outs. I spend my time watching...carefully looking at how the people in front of me are going...Ok it almost seems like a baseball game...the old lady in front cant figure out how to weight her bananas, the self checkout to my right is beeping because hairspray is now a age-restricted item and the lady is bitching (you have to be 16 to buy it here in GA), the self-checkout to my left is full of a bunch of kids that arent scanning all their items and I dont want to be caught LOOKING over to that direction and have them think that I know they're stealing, more less get behind them in isle. So I decided to stick in the lane Im in...the one the right, the lady is satisfied that they finally made her thing stop beeping so that she can leave, and then the ones behind her pull up (I still havent moved an inch....the elder woman now has to spend 20 mins digging out the money), the people to the left that were stealing is finally done and gone and the people behind them move up.
Then, you're faced with the all important question...should I move behind one of the other self-checkouts? since this one isnt moving and needs the cashier to scan it where she can start scanning again ever 3 secs. hmmm...ok the one on the right...she's almost done...no one else behind her...Im thinking about it. I look to the one on my left again, and they are almost done...by the time I turn around again the one on the right is occupied by the one lady between me and older woman, and my last choice is the one on the left.
Phew...I got over here, no one's here. YAYYYYYY I start unloading and make sure my girls are sitting in the buggy and behaving good, wipe the sweat form my head and grab mym wallet with such ease and precise moment. Only to me horror...to get up to the machine and big letters on the screen saying now out of order...because it was out of money.

OMG that was not my day...lemme tell you...after having to wait for them to fill it back up and then taking they're time...I grabbed my items and the kids and took them across the way to the jewelry department and explained what had happened. That way I could get my shit scanned and get the HELL out of there. :mfinger: ugh hate walmart.

Basically any store I ever go to does that to me. I think it is because they know they are stores where most people 'need' to go, so they figure that making people get really pissed won't affect their sales. It's just the crazy mind games that people play on you, just like commercials.

That would be great, so we wouldn't have to wait for the people that are completely idiotic and have no idea how to go to a line and put their groceries or whatever on it. Unfortunately though, we don't and I have to wait behind all the idiots. :mfinger:

Those stories are a perfect example of why I only go shopping for groceries after midnight on a Saturday. They can't screw you over with long lines if nobody else is there. Only people I ever see around that time are a bunch of kids that are either drunk or high off their ass and playing with every shiny object they see.

Love this thread. Wal-Mart and other stores like that aren't the only places that have stupid people fuck things up though. I work at a fast food resteraunt whenever I go home, and those people can be just as stupid. I hate it when I have to wait to serve someone until they're done talking on their cell phone (and I've noticed they do this at department stores too), then they complain later that the service was slow. Hello!!!!!!!!!!!! You just fucking held up the entire line behind you and slowed down their service and you want to complain that your service wasn't top notch??? Mother fucking morons! I can't believe people are so stupid and selfish that they don't think about people behind them when they're wanting to stir shit. That's why I never cause a fuss at the store. If something's really massively wrong, I can come back later and talk to customer service in Wal-Mart, or the manager at the fast food resteraunt.

Another good way to get back at them is to create a mess. Sure some poor shmuck has to clean it up but lobbing two liter bottles of Soda into the clothing department and then claiming you tripped is still satisfying.

When buying beer grab a few boxes of some lice shampoos and constantly scratch your head. People will notice and let you go ahead of them. When you get to the front of the line tell the cashier you don't need the lice shit and buy your beer.
