The amount of time between a self service checkout becoming available and the person behind you in the queue telling you that a self service checkout is available
Edit - fucked it
@Funkhouser at the first sniff of a pun
The amount of time you take at a cashpoint compared to everyone ahead of you in the queue.
Having your card come out and then putting it back in/ putting a different card in should require you to go back to the back of the queue
YES! Different transactions, therefore different place in the queue.
Hurry up then! I haven’t got all day and I probably need a wee.
The amount of time it takes me at a self-service till compared to the dickheeds who place all of their items on the plate instead of putting them straight into a chuffin carrier bag
Gulag for anyone in the queue telling you a checkout is available.
Also people silently counting your items on the 10 items or less conveyor belt. Yeah I’ve got 12, what you gonna do about it narc?
worst is when a space opens up and you start walking towards it and then the checkout staffer is like “ONE RIGHT HERE”
like aye, cheers pal. where the fuck did you think i was going?
Sometimes people are just oblivious though.
Sometimes there are multiple free check outs available and I’m still waiting behind 3 people staring into space.
I normally just walk past these people saying “if no one is using that one I will” by the time they’ve realised you are 50% of the way through your transaction…
Gulag for them too.
Paid for a £10 purchase with a bag of pennies at a busy self checkout the other day. Do what I like.
Not letting Sainsburys steal 10% of my penny jar with their so called ‘Coin-Star’.
the bank can’t charge you for it!
