The Great Vagina (sorry I don't know your real name!) reminded me of something that happened to me a few weeks ago at my local Walmart with her last thread about groups separating into two lines to see which one went faster.
I had only picked up a few things, probably seven or eight items, and gotten into the 20 items or less lane. I had my kids with me so I really wasn't paying much attention to who was in front of me when I entered the lane, but when I got them all wrangled together and quiet for two seconds, I looked up and saw that the people in front of me had an ENTIRE CART of groceries! Now, they only had four or five items, but they had about tons of each of those items... as in they had about 25 jars of baby food (the same kind, applesauce I think), 5 bags of diapers (same brand), fifteen cans of formula (the same brand)... you get my point. Did they think that because they had the same item, just over and over, that it justified them being in that lane? Are people really this stupid, or were they just clearly taking advantage of the short 20 items or less line (because we all know that at Walmart you're lucky if 3 out of their 25 lanes are actually open, even on a Friday night!)? I didn't say anything to them like I wanted to because I'm just not a confrontational person. What makes this worse is that the Walmart employees ARE NOT allowed to make them go to another line (you better believe I asked the clerk when it was my turn to be rung up)! Anyway, what are your thoughts on this... what would you do?
