So, Im enjoying a drink or two and I just had an epiphany: this entire conversation about carts has been one long innuendo, hasnt it?  As in:

Bro, how was your date last night?
Well, lets just say that I [strokes moustache] put the cart in the corral, if you catch my meaning.

Man, Im slow on the uptake!  But my answer is the same... I put it in the corral.

Which explains everything, doesn't it?  Some of us clearly need to put the cart in the corral more often.  :) ;)

So there are only two lanes open at checkout and they both have a bunch of people waiting in them. A checker walks up and opens a third lane. Should there be some semblance of order as to who goes first, or should it be a free for all? I know we can't expect a perfectly fair system, but should the person who's been waiting 5 minutes be jumped by the last guy in line?

Hunger games baby... survival of the fittest.

Seriously though, I always offer to let the person(s) ahead of me go into the newly opened lane first.
if I want ice cream or a chocolate or a cake, I fucking have it

Proximity ends up mattering the most in these situations.  Also any instructions from the person opening the new lane (such as saying next in line customers move over here).

It just occurs to me that this entire debate is a uniquely american problem since most places in europe have these beasties:



Yep, I think these are a good invention. I've rarely seen rogue carts at market parking lots.

I remember somebody mentioning that unless you don't have any spare change, then you're outta luck and cart. That is certainly true, but you can also buy metallic/plastic tokens for about 50 cents that fit into the coin slot.

This wouldn't work in my part of the Land of The Free and Home of the Offended... people in my part of the country carry bolt cutters in thir sooped up pic-up truks.  Walmart would just have assorted lengths of chain and bits of plastic left in the parking lots along with the carts. 

To touch on Barto's question, I simply step back and let the other animals sort out who goes to the new open line... no need for fisticuffs if I'm just buying ice cream.  Though if I'm buying chips or kale (or kale chips) you better get the ---- out of my way.
"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter; Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man."  Ecclesiastes 12:13

Now with Twitler taking a high end steak of this caliber and insulting the cow that died for it by having it well done just shows zero respect for the product, which falls right in line with the amount of respect he shows for pretty much everything else.- Lonestar

IMO if they ask for the next person in line, that should be the first person in line who doesn't have their shit on the belt yet. I've had times where there are 3 people in line. Myself with a single item, behind 2 people taking up the entire belt. Cashier says she can take the next person in line, and the person with their shit on the belt (who isn't getting rang up) starts picking up their shit to migrate it to the other register and gets pissed when I step right up to buy my energy drink or whatever.

I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

I love when I don't need a cart to shop because when it inevitably comes time for a lane to open, I haul my ass right on over with a couple handfuls of stuff while the family folk are busy trying to maneuver their full carts :lol

Was in a big hurry this morning, needed to get something from the grocery store, pulled into a spot, and there was a cart, left by someone who is clearly a heathen.

That problem usually takes care of itself because the lines very rarely are backed up too much.  Much easier than the dreaded, much more difficult task of putting a cart in the corral.  :lol

Motherfuckers!

What the hell is wrong with you man?!?!?!  For starters, what kind of idiot backs in to a grocery store spot only to make it MORE inconvenient for them to unload their cart?  Then by leaving it back there, you're being a dick just for the sake of being a dick.  You went thru the inconvenience to manoeuvre your cart to your trunk for yourself, but won't do it for the next person / employee that needs to move the cart.  Epitome of selfish and lazy all at once.  I don't know whether to admire you for that, or want to kick you in the nuts. I'm so conflicted.   :lol  But then I remember you're a Bruins fan, so I'll go with the nut-shot.

Do you have no grocery-store etiquette??

I'll bet you take 9 items to the 1-8 limit lane, don't you?

I'll bet you drive a Mart-Cart to the middle of an aisle, just to get up and walk away?

It wasn't inconvenient to load the groceries in my trunk.

I only bought 4 things.
Bread
Toilet paper
Cotton balls
Hair Spray

I put them in the side door!

You didn't expect me to carry all that stuff did you?  :lol

The life of a family man.  The last like five trips to the store for me were some variation on that list.  Some consumable - bread, milk - some toiletry - toilet paper, paper towels - some cleaning product - cotton balls, garbage bags - some hygiene product - hair spray, soap.   

I was cool once.   No, really.
