This is a very trivial confession

but it's also very strange and I can't explain it. EVERY time I go to the supermarket and there are several lineups of relatively equal length I ALWAYS end up in the line that moves the slowest. Whether it's the person who can't find their money/bank card, forgets their PIN code, cashier needs a price check, customer has a disagreement about the sale price, new cashier comes on board and has to sign in, it never fails. I'm like George Costanza in Seinfeld, time to start doing the "opposite". Choose the line that I normally wouldn't choose at first glance.

how lucky you are to have chosen whatever groceries you want and are able to pay for it.

Opposite Day..
That doesn't work, I tried that already, but good One..
Pssst...Grocery Store line ups happen to everyone.. Even at self check out TOO
Dam products never come up correct in the system or the code has been changed.
Or you have to type the entire code in yourself, when it does'nt work..
It almost feels like the system has a mind of is own .. Im sure they have management keeping an eye on these things from high above. Store policys and security and all.
So, long story short. Is the self check out really faster?
Or do I just like pretending I'm a knowledgeable cashier.. Pushing all those buttons!
Who knows.

This 'curse' runs in my family. We have a good laugh when I shop with my 80 yr old mother and just make it a fun day out. If I'm with someone I always ask them to pick the line or self-checkout terminal. Otherwise I choose the opposite of the line I was drawn to. And yes, it's such a 21st century problem which I'm happy to be cursed with because I don't have financial problems. So the next time this happens to you.....offer the senior citizen in front of you to pay for their groceries so they don't have to pay with a jar of nickels. Just tell them you saw a 20 drop from their pocket. Gets good karma to go your way to appease the Checkout Gods.

Try to...
