My Daily Rant

So I don't actually post daily rants. But that doesn't mean that don't happen. Rest well assured of that!

Today's big rant was to my mom at the grocery store and it had to do with lines at check out. A couple years ago, a check out line at a grocery store was no big deal to me. Just part of doing business, you know?

However, in today's world of self-check out, there's little to no excuse for lines. Especially at 10:45 in the morning. If there is no one around to man the little help counter that oversees self check-out, that's one thing. But to see a grocery store with only 3 or 4 normal check-out lines being used, each with long lines, and 6 self check-out stations where only 2 are open (still with long lines) is just ridiculous.

As long as there's already an associate assigned to the area, why not open the rest? It makes no efficient or business sense.

If anyone can think of a logical reason for this seemingly senseless reality, please let me know. In the mean time, I'll plan to spend 70% of my supermarket time in line coming up with innovative ways to move things along.

Keep It Real!
