Top this for inconsideration

Fat old broad has about $150. worth of groceries.

Cashier checks them through fairly quickly and they accumulate at the end of the belt until the entire area is completely filled.

Fat old broad begins the slow process of bagging said groceries............one item at a time.

Cashier is just standing there because fat old broad won't let her bag...........she want's the groceries packed in the bags a certain way.

Cashier cannot take the next person in line (just ahead of me) because fat old broad has not yet paid.............and, apparently, is not going to pay until every last item is bagged.

Fat old broad suggests to whomever might be listening that she'll go even slower if anybody doesn't like it.

10 minutes later she finally waddles over to the credit card swipe box and begins the search for a suitable card. Two minutes later, she finds it and completes the transaction.

I must say that I did well.............watched this idiot and chose not to get into it with her...........because if I did, I would have had to dump all her crap onto the floor and the manager would have came out and took the side of the old broad...........etc...........etc.

Top that.

Nah.........out here.

I was thinking of you while I was standing in line. In fact, that was the only thing that stopped me.............thinking of what you might do.

Someone found my iPad 2 tonight in a Kroger shopping cart and didn't turn it in ---- and this is a decent part of town & Kroger. As a comparison; last summer I left it in a shopping cart out in the middle of big Walmart and it got turned into Customer Service.

Oh....well....that lasted 18months.

I do not know who is more idiotic, you or the old broad. Questions:

1) Only 1 line open?
2) Longer wait at the other lines?
3) Can you do without the groceries and leave?

It would never happen to me. That is why I never post trivial stuff.

1) Two lines open
2) You never know the length of the wait until the wait is completed.
3) Sure...........a return trip to the store would take way more than the lost 12 minutes. This would be the height of stupidity.

It would never happen to you because you'll spend twice as much time to avoid it because you haven't considered the consequences of your actions.

Ya'll ain't got self check out.

A little story. I live in a very rural area with two WalMarts, both being approximately 35 miles away in opposite directions. One of them has self check out and the other doesn't. Seems there was too much stuff being stolen at the store that no longer has it. It amazes me the number of ppl that can't operate a self check out.
