Never fails that when picking a line at the market, the one with the old people goes the slowest.

Doesn't matter the number of items or if they have to remove them from the cart: they take forever to get through Phone Post 3.0

My wife gets annoyed at me because I always game the supermarket lines. I look at the checker, the bagger, the people in line, what is in their carts, etc. Then I make an educated judgement about who is going to be the fastest and go in that line.

Old people are one of the key things I'm looking to avoid.

If you take more than 2 minutes at a self-check line, you fail at life.

Don't even get me going on the ones that decide to use the self check-out, then have to get the clerk working the 4 self check-outs to ring up all your groceries anyways. Come-on Grandpa, go to a regular check-out line!

My problem is people that pay with food stamps. They must car pool. 3 heaping carts of shit food and 5 people with 5 cards. Happens to me every time. It's always a cluster fuck.

Not tonight though. I went through the 20 items or less line with 27 items and I REGRET NOTHING!!!! Phone Post 3.0

Another line to avoid is one that has a customer with WIC checks.

They have to ring up each wic check as a seperate transaction. If u see a single mom with young kids and a bunch of milk,eggs, and cheese in the cart go to a different checkstand even if the line is twice as long. Phone Post 3.0

This.

I've cut meat at grocers for the last 18 years.

If you think old people take a long time at the check out, you need to watch their entire shopping trip.

First, they drive around the lot 10 times just to see if they can get a close spot.

Then, they walk super slow to the store, walk in, pick out a cart, pick up the sales paper, and read it right there at the entrance.

Don't get me started on how long it takes them just to pick out their god damned produce. They will check every apple on the display just to make sure theirs is the most pristine.

Then, in the meat market, if they need 1 pound of something, by god it has to be 1.00 lbs. 1.12 lbs is unacceptable. They will stand there and waste 5 minutes of their lives just so I can get them a pack with exact weight.

Any perishable items, they will dig to the back to get the farthest away date. Oh, wait, those still aren't far enough away! Dairy clerk! Get Ms. Jenkins some fresh milk out of the cooler! It obviously takes her three weeks to finish a half gallon!

But the whole time, they are just happy as fuck. It's like a kid going to Chuck E Cheese or some shit. They'll be in there for hours. When they get to the cashier, fun time is over. Gotta make it last.
