when someone has more than ten items in the express line at the grocery store, you: a. point out the person's error and suggest that he/she choose another line b. dont let it bother you c. get annoyed and feel sorry for someone who is so inconsiderate of others. well, if you ask me, i think im gonna have to choose letter b. lolz. i dont really have time to bother with those kind of people, so i just let it be. peace on earth. lolz. :)

i'd go for B. or if i am in a hurry, i'd go to a different line. most of the time, i just let the person do what s/he wants. it is usually the cashier who informs her/him that s/he should use another lane. i don't bother at all because she might tell me to mind my own business :) i don't like having an argument with other people... unless they do something wrong at it directly affects me.

haha, you are right. that is what im thinking sometimes too. i am afraid that the person mught snap at me or maybe get mad at me. i am not really the type of person who enjoys arguments and unnecessary conflicts, so id rather mind my own business. haha! :)

well it depends if i am in a hurry and how many more than 10 items they have. i mean if they have more than 20 items then it is too much and they should be told about the 10 item rule, but this is where i think the checkout operator needs to get some guts and say something, i hate it when they dont say something

yeah, i agree, sometimes, the cashier just doesnt care and she/he leaves it up to us to scold or tell the customer that he or she is on the wrong lane. the cashier should save us the troubke of having to inform the customer. lolz. that way, we can avoid unnecessary arguments and or conflicts. :)
