It's actually impressive how slow a Wal-Mart checkout line moves.

Seriously what is up with these people? How can they possibly move that slow without making an effort at it? I know the job sucks ass, they don't want to he there, and are paid shit but still. When I worked a shit job it just made want to rush customers through so I could go sit. These people seem to want to extend the working and enhance the shared misery by being extra, extra, extra slow.

Perhaps you need to change to Aldi whose cashiers are incredibly speedy 馃檪

[@324037,Dlrannie] Well you mentioned a grocery store.
Dlrannie31-35, F
[@521796,MethDozer] I can only assume you鈥檝e never been in to an Aldi and seen the variety of non grocery items in their middle aisles - such items might include Toasters, kettles, electric drills, pressure washers, bedding, clothing to name but a few 馃檪
It鈥檚 a time warp. They are actually going very fast but because the warping of space/time, your perception of it is that they are moving very slow. Walmart uses it to control labor costs. 馃槍

Only methheads shop at Walmart. Go to target or wholes foods like an adult!

God, one time the dude at the checkout was tripping balls. He kept dropping my groceries and coulnt even put them in the bag. Spent at least 10 minutes just sliding sauce packets back and forth over the scanner.

Hahahahah I'd probably have to be high to work there too

It's often the fault of customers. They try to haggle prices at the register more than you'd imagine. At least around here they have quotas and get yelled at or fired if they don't check enough people out in a certain timeframe.

[@657984,ViciDraco] Kick the fuckers out then. NEXT!!!

They don't have self checkout?
MethDozerM
[@645510,Longpatrol] Nah, not in this area. They'd get robbed blind.

When Morrisons cashiers were told to send transactions through at the speed of light here they ran into a problem.We customers didn鈥檛 pack our shopping any quicker!
Didn鈥檛 keep that policy for long....
Sirfurryanimal61-69, M
[@521796,MethDozer] We generally do.I prefer it......You get asked.
MethDozerM
[@356742,SirfurryanimalWales] If I had to wait behind some dipshit while he bagged his own shit because he wouldn't let the cashier do it quickly I'd curse him out.


It's a checkout line. The. name of the game is to scan and bag as quickly as possible and get motherfuckers moving.
Sirfurryanimal61-69, M
[@521796,MethDozer] I pack quickly and expertly.Even the cashiers remark on it.I use large cool bags.

[@526179,TurtlePink] It's all of them I ever been to as well. I've often wondered if it's store policy and they teach a class.

It's amazing how much slower it is now with all these computers than it was in 1970. We had non electric cash registers. Caching!!!

I would rather stand in a slow line than use self check.I usually shop early morning because of that
MethDozerM
[@16806,cherokeepatti] Not me. I love the self checkout at home depot. Quick easy, one less stranger
the air is thinner inside every Wal*Mart, not enough oxygen to the brain
Shopping is just not shopping anymore :/
