"Get Me Out!"

At that moment you are checking out of the grocery store, you have aprox 2.3 seconds to scan the lines and the cashiers manning them to know which is the fastest line to pick.

Lines with men cashiers always go much faster than cashiers with chicks.  Girls can't lift as much or as fast and have the tendency to ask the opportunity for more wasted time, "And how is your day?"

Men are strong, lifting soda pop cases and gallons of milk as if they were feathers, and blow through each customer as they would a simple task; get out, get out, get out.

Call me sexist, but to find the fastest check-out line you must look for the following:
1) Carts filled with just a few items. (Over stuffed carts take hours)
2) Shoppers without children.  (That battle for that one piece of candy the kid took of the eye level display is worth at least 4-6 minutes of time that you could have been out of the store!)
3) Shoppers holding no paper in their hands.  (I'm all for saving money but when I need to go, a lady with a handful of coupons or daily store ads just means trouble - get out of her line)
4) Men Cashiers (see above)
5)  Shoppers who look like they have someplace to go.   (The older man shopping at 2pm has no plans for the rest of the day and could start a converation with your male cashier about the price of cookies and you'll be stuck)

Let's review...
Pick the line with:
Carts with less items, No kids, No coupons, Men at the lead, and rushed shoppers!

Hope this helps make shopping go quick so you can get home ..... to do other chores that just never seem to go away.
