Eh, more like a novelty paint job. Which I'm sure someone's done to a Maserati. I mean, there's a Maserati Ghibli; that's just begging for some rich Miyazaki fan to do something with it.

According to Wikipedia, "The Toast was an American anthology, humor and feminist writing website," which may be the first time anyone has ever written the phrase "humor and feminist writing website."

For some reason we have those around here for hardware stores but not supermarkets. I'm not a big fan of them anyway. Every time I try and use one it's a sequence of oops! this item doesn't scan properly! oops! this item is over-18-only so a staffer has to come approve it! oops! the register insists you haven't bagged this item! etc. etc.

Who the fuck wouldn't use a divider if you weren't self checking? Where do these assholes live?

I'll admit to being about 50:50 on divider use.

If I'm behind someone, I'll usually just leave like a foot or so between our items so there's a clear delineation. The only time I think to put one down behind me is if the person has a super-full cart and/or small kids.

I also tend to Tetris all my stuff on the conveyor so it takes up minimal space. Folks that put one thing after another so it looks like an assembly line are terrible.

I also Tetris all my stuff, but it’s part of the overall process of maximizing efficiency so as many people as possible can put their groceries on the belt. (Ideally, I want three customers with stuff on the belt at all times, for conditions where and when I shop.) Especially because I usually use a basket, so not being able to load the belt means having to carry the basket longer.

I'm not going to put a divider down behind my stuff. You want to keep your stuff from mingling with mine, you put the divider down behind me. I tend to use my shopping box as the divider in front of my stuff, it's super obvious.

And the belt would need to be like 15 feet long to have 3 people's stuff on it at our suburban stores, since person plus cart is 6 feet long anyway.

Yeah I mean I don't think anyone has to put it down behind them. You put it down in front of you and the next person puts it down in front of them.

(ETA also I would never get in line behind someone with a full-size cart, or if I did I would expect their groceries to take up the whole belt anyway.)

I'm pro-self check but if I'm using WIC I have to go through a checkout line. Team Divider, and Team Tetris, and Team "you put it in front of your own groceries," and Team "this is absolutely something worth getting mad over, if people are Doing It Wrong."

I assume this is Ellie, but it amuses me to think instead that some Grylliader considered this to be such a dark and shameful thing that they had to post it under the veil of anonymity.

Eh, I place it behind me if I'm done loading the conveyor, there's room behind me, and the person behind me can't reasonably reach it because the cashier didn't slide it/them down to the end.

I will place the divider behind me simply because I don't want that grubby prole's items near mine clarity is a virtue, and it's just easier if I don't have to stop the cashier from grabbing an item that they assumed was one of mine.
