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?

    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

      I've done that one too. Bless their hearts. πŸ™‚

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

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

    That would be hilarious to witness πŸ˜‰

      It would be. I've not had the pleasure yet, but one never knows. πŸ™‚

    I'd be worried if she had a gun the way that people are today.

    Have a fantastic Tuesday Sandee & Zane. See ya my friends.

      I'd love to see it indeed. πŸ™‚

    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?"

    • February 16, 2016 at 1:16 pm

      You and I think so much alike Joe. πŸ™‚

    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. πŸ˜›

    Have a splendiferous day! big hugs xoxo

    • February 16, 2016 at 1:17 pm

      They don't have Publix here. You go to Costco and Walmart you wait a week to get checked out. πŸ™‚

  9. February 16, 2016 at 7:59 am

    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.

    • February 16, 2016 at 1:18 pm

      We have a lot of stores here that need more lanes open. It's the waiting game at some stores. πŸ™‚

  10. February 16, 2016 at 8:05 am

    Heeheehee! If only it could happen!

    • February 16, 2016 at 1:18 pm

      I would be clapping at loud as possible. πŸ™‚

  11. February 16, 2016 at 8:44 am

    now this would be great to watch! Happy shopping!!

    • February 16, 2016 at 1:18 pm

      Yes it would Kathe. I've not seen this happen, but it would be so very nice to see. πŸ™‚

  12. February 16, 2016 at 9:35 am

    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

    • February 16, 2016 at 1:19 pm

      We could and some have. Not that it does us any good. πŸ™‚

  13. February 16, 2016 at 10:26 am

    Haha! Yes! I wish that really happened every once in a while.

    • February 16, 2016 at 1:19 pm

      I'd settle for just once Jen. πŸ™‚

  14. February 16, 2016 at 10:48 am

    C'mon-is that any way to treat an accountant?

    • February 16, 2016 at 1:19 pm

      No, but it would be refreshing to see. πŸ™‚

  15. February 16, 2016 at 1:15 pm

    I would love to see that. Some people think the rules don't apply to them.

    • February 16, 2016 at 1:20 pm

      A lot of people don't think the rules apply to them. Look at our corrupt government. πŸ™‚

  16. February 16, 2016 at 1:38 pm

    Oh absolutely! That would be hilarious if it happened in real life!

    • February 16, 2016 at 2:00 pm

      I would love to see this happen just once. Please. πŸ™‚

  17. February 16, 2016 at 1:57 pm

    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…

    • February 16, 2016 at 2:00 pm

      It's a thing of the past isn't it. The abiding by the rules thing. πŸ™‚

  18. February 16, 2016 at 5:46 pm

    BBBBBB-busted! Great response.

  19. February 16, 2016 at 6:29 pm

    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!

    • February 17, 2016 at 4:29 am

      Fair is fair. πŸ™‚

  20. February 17, 2016 at 7:38 am

    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.

    • February 17, 2016 at 3:51 pm

      No, they don't do that here. I would hate that. What a terrible position to be put in. πŸ™‚

  21. February 17, 2016 at 5:23 pm

    Yes, that would be nice!

    • February 18, 2016 at 7:20 am

      I would be more than nice Binky. πŸ™‚

  22. February 19, 2016 at 1:02 am

    LOL – that would happen here all the time.
