Usually 1 hour of life sucking boardem (aka wasted time better spent elsewhere). Seems no matter what line I pick someone in front always has a problem.
"Oh sorry I don't seem to have my wallet.", "Sir/ma'am your credit card/check has been refused.",
Or possibly the worst is people on public assistance who have these things called WIC checks for a specific amount and type of item and just have all these items mixed together and hand the cashier 5 or 6 of these checks and the poor cashier has to sort through all the items and find the ones the check is for. Each check has to be rung up separate of each other. I see someone pull out these damn things I move to another line because they take a average of 5 min per check to process.

It's embarrassing to use them too. The only time I ever used assistance was during my pregnancy and when my child was an infant. I lived in a military town and you could spot retired military men a mile away. I remember a time when one of them made me feel very bad for using WIC checks in line in front of him smiley:::frown.

In line, or what we'd say more typically in the UK, in a queue.

I have nothing against the person using them, but it would be so much more help if they separated the items so the poor cashier is not fumbling to find the items on the check. That is what drives me nuts (well one of a few things). If separated into groups they go fairly quick maybe 1-2 minutes per.

I agree that people should be more helpful to the cashier. People should be more considerate in general.

When we pack our cart in the store, we think about how it's going to go on the belt, and then into the bags. I don't expect people to be all "Stepford Wife" like me, but a little forethought would be nice.

About those the processing of those checks going fairly quick: it felt like an eternity to me.

Never heard of anyone saying 'on line'.

In line.

I thought this was one of those things that used to be a regional difference between the east and west coasts in the US. But maybe the fact that "online" now has another meaning has caused everyone to start using "in line" for lining up for something.
