I always try to go grocery shopping late at night. For one thing, then I'm not going on an empty stomach and buying everything in the store. But I get easily frustrated in any sort of line. I have no patience
i made the mistake of going to the store last week after . bought every peice of junk food in the store.

Do you have not a debit card by now?
Seriously, writing checks is so old school.

Get with the 21st century and get a damn debit card.

It's ONLY old people now. And they take 10 years to write it OR they'll be like, "Can you print it for me?" And it drives me nuts because I could have DRAWN money for them to pay with by then.

Re: F... those who dont respect the express lane at the grocery store

My wife and I tend to shop later in the evening as well...to avoid the ignorant masses. And I usually use Self Checkout anytime I can, because how hard is it to scan your shit and bag it? And to avoid Granny Badwitch and her 23,405 pennies to pay for cat food and prune juice.

good old commisary lines. anyone else notice the polar opposite of some wives with some being hot as hell while others r somewhat scary looking? plus when I used to go I was only in my mid to late teens and there were always cute daughters to make eyes and flirt with so for me the commisary was never too bad, it was the putting away of everything that was a pain in the ass.

as far as the express lane thing, I hate it when the person ahead of u complains about something ringing up for a few more cents than what they thought it would be and demand it be changed even if it means waiting for a manager. and does anyone else consistently have another lane open up after u've been waiting in the so called express line for about 5-10 minutes but there r too many people behind u for u to get over to the newly opened lane? I seem to have that happen too me one-third of the times I go to the grocery store before 8.

Re: F... those who dont respect the express lane at the grocery store

or you have two lanes that are about the same in length and the one you always choose seems to take the longest.

Re: F... those who dont respect the express lane at the grocery store

One day you guys are going to be old so lets give them a little slack. We don't realy have a problem with long line except when you know they are going to be busy. I still use checks and have it all ready to go so everyone does not have to wait for me to fill out a complete check only the total. I had a debit card but did away with it for 2 good reasons. 1 I have both savings and checking with the same bank and over draft protection for my checking from my savings. If some one got into my card they could drain my checking then my savings. 2 I seem to spend more when I can just pop the card in and get more cash. I use my credit card for most thing and then just pay off the balance every month and I receive points for my charges.

Re: F... those who dont respect the express lane at the grocery store

Since I live near the only Costco in the county, it hellasucks. I only go if I really need something, and it's not a weeknight or weekend day. The lines are atrocious, and to cram as much crap in the store as they can, you can only accomodiate so much room for the lines. And then they only have 3 registers open, when lines call for 6.

And...I always pick the longest line.
