10 Items, No Checks

What is wrong with people? Can't they read? My Sister and I went to pick up some snacks last night at the local grocery store. This store is ALWAYS packed, and I NEVER qualify for the express line, but this time I actually did.... After standing in line forever, I realized that I could have gone through the regular line 3 times before getting to check out in the "speedy line".

The hold up? A couple who obviously can't read or count. Maybe they had 10 items when they first got there, but after leaving the line, Yes, leaving the line, to go and get a few things they had "forgotten", they ran the poor cashier back and forth wanting their Black and Mild cigars, then complained that they were too expensive, and sent her back for regular cigarettes instead. Once they finally had their "more than 10 items" scanned, they argued about the prices, tried to write a check that couldn't be cashed and ended up leaving without their groceries.....

When the cashier was asked: "Why were they allowed to write a check?" (like that was the only thing wrong here) she replied: "Because they will complain to the Manager, so the Manager said let them do it"

So this begs the question, is it better to piss off a line full of people, or one couple who's business you didn't get anyway?

I know the answer, do you?
