Thread: How many variables do you take in at the supermarket counter line?

  1. #41


    I just kind of go into a line and then check out when it's my time

    Similarly, my grocery budgeting system consists of buying less stuff next time if I bought too much stuff this time

    1. Length of line.
    2. The "cashier"(The ones next to my house are either extremely slow, flirty or quick so I go wherever the quick one is.)
    3. Number of items on people's carts.
    4. Mood of the day.(No really-If I'm angry I always take the ones nearer the exit door without realizing it at first.)
    5. Closest to where I am.
    Sometimes I feel like I'm "on Mercury"-

    Length of line.

    Trolleys or baskets and number of items contained within them.

    Thread Derail

    When it comes to ATMs, sex of people in line ahead of me. More than 3 women and it's buh-bye (unless urgent), I'll be back later. Sexist? Sue (and) me (gonna get it on tonight).

    length of line
    amount of products in basket
    estimated experience and speed of worker
    Probably first two, plus: niceness of worker (if I'm familiar with the employees) and cuteness of worker, if male.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    1. Length of the line.

    2. Number of items in peoples' carts.

    3. Closeness of line to where I'm standing.

    4. The cashier. If the cashier doesn't look very friendly or if I have a not-so-good interaction with him or her in the past I will try to avoid this cashier, even if its the shortest line. I remember one time a cashier made me uncomfortable because she'd say things like "You sure you want to eat that?"

    I'll also be wary of getting into lines where I know the clerk looks like he or she will talk your head off. I just want to pay for my stuff and go. So in summary, I look for someone friendly but businesslike.

    5. The people in front of my in line. I've noticed that the elderly tend to be slower emptying their carts and parents with children tend to be slower as well.

    I need to change my answer. Now I only have one variable I think about: the amount of total stuff in line before me. I'll notice other things but it won't usually alter my line choice.

    I guess I got lazy.
