    Why must I wait for someone to order 5 different cuts of meats and cheeses at the deli counter only to wait for them again at the cash register while they use 2 different payment methods and then count out exact change?

    Fucking ponderous man. :facepalm:

    I understand that the deli counter can be slow and sometimes you have to wait but to have to then wait for the same people again at the cash register makes me want to blow my mind up.

    I experience the same problem at the coffee shop. I just want coffee and the dickhead in front of me orders a triple skinny latte with a twist and not too much foam.
    They should have two lines, one for "Just Coffee" and one for "Pain In The Ass Drinks"

    self-checkout counters rock. scan your shit, swipe your credit card, and GTFO without having to deal with dumbass customers or chatty cashiers.

    they need to find a way to make this work in places like the delis and coffee shops. i hate people.

    you can't give them your order, do your shopping and come back? My grocery store pages you when your deli order is done

    They don't but it wouldn't matter anyway. You still have to wait in line to give your order. It's not like they take everyones order at once.

    It's a small local grocery and the point is...well I think I made my point already.

    My friends and I threw deli meat at a hooker at a bachelor party once. She had a piece of bologna stuck to her back for about 15 minutes and didn't even know it.

    True story.

    I call my butcher with my order in advance, he's around the corner so I can pick it up any time. I'm sorry for your troubles Bud.
