    If I notice someone has two or three items yes I will let them go in front of me. If they had a full basket, nope sorry they can wait.

    I was annoyed at Aldi this weekend when the older male cashier ushered an older but glammed up lady (a bit 'tarty' looking lol) to come in ahead of me. She only had a basket and I had a not very full trolley but I also had four children aged 3 months - 7 years, was not impressed!

    forgot to say, I would've offered for me to ahead of me had I not had all my children!

    I have before if it's busy, all the checkouts are full and the express aisle is huge. But only if they have a few things, are quite old, very heavily pregnant or had a tantruming child.

    If they line up after me and it's quiet, and there's other options? Nup. I believe in common courtesy, but if they can't take 3 steps to go to an empty checkout? Their problem, not mine!

    No one expects to be let through. Yes normal line rules / etiquette is line up in order, but a person can still on occasion choose to be kind and selfless and may choose to let someone through. It's not expected, to do it nor is it rude not to.
