    DON'T.EVER.TOUCH.MY.GROCERIES!!!

    Yes, with my OCD and anxieties I would have definitely said something. It is not okay to assume that the person behind you can take forever to do their groceries or that your time is more precious than theirs. Neither is it okay to shove someone else's groceries. If they were travelling together then they should have waited for each other or gone in a separate line. If my groceries weren't up yet and he only had a few things...and asked politely then sure, I would have said yes, no problem.

    This comes with the disclaimer that I *may* have used my horn several times last week. In my defense though, it was either for safety or moronic reasons (ie. driver in between lanes driving at 20kph or someone sitting idle on their phone for some time instead of moving)

    Me too! But someone can usually find one :-)

    I agree with you about touching my things by the way. Not. On.

    I do wonder though - are checkout assistants briefed in what to do in the case of a queue jumper? Are they instructed not to interfere unless it comes to watermelons being tossed about or is there a set protocol for dealing with such instances?

    Totally, much like the woman who pushed in on me yesterday at the craft shop! My sil was served first meanwhile another woman struggling to keep 4 kids under control was also waiting so since I had one in a pram and a 3 year old who was actually behaving to two adults I let her go first. While I was waiting at the register an older lady wanders straight up between me and the register and put her stuff down - then starts asking questions about what product to use!!! Luckily they sent her off to find what she was after and I jumped in and got served and got out of there. I was in a good mood so didn't say anything. I prob wouldn't have said anything in your situation except to the checkout chick after they left.

    @Little Ted i was never briefed on such situations when I was a checkout chick. Sometimes it's best not to say anything...its amazing what customers would yell at you for. I can imagine one of the older ladies I used to work with pulling him up and sending him to the back of the line. Haha. They were braver than me.

    As for being unanimous...the only legit reason for him to do that I can think of is maybe he had a "saved" transaction at that checkout and he came back to pay it and decided to grab a few extra things in the process. People would often have saved transactions if they left their wallet at home.
