So let’s say that you’re in line at the Container Store one Friday night after wandering around for hours finding the perfect hanger and other awesome things at your favorite store.
There’s only one employee on a check out line and she calls for back up. You’ve lined up sort of behind the one person ahead of you that she’s checking out at the moment, and wait for the additional employees.
Another customer comes up with their soon-to-be purchases right when the new employee opens up a check out line across from the one you’re in. You could slide two feet to the left and be in that newly-opened line.
Yes, the other customer takes it upon themselves to walk to the new employee and check out. And doesn’t seem to think that’s a problem.
This begs the question – when you’re in line, do you stand in line for the actual check out person or do you stand in a general line for multiple check outs and the first one that opens up is where you go? I am definitely a fan of standing in one and waiting for the next available cashier. It seems much easier and makes more sense for the I-can’t-choose-the-shortest-line-at-check-out-to-save-my-life me.
Or am I the weird one?
