Honestly people. Everyone needs to chill out on new bizarre ways to describe people. I dont want to do a mental essay trying to figure out the standard of acceptable responses every week.

Speaking for everyone everywhere, we'll stop with the descriptive neologisms when you stop dropping medical jargon into conversations with non-medicals.

I would have to say "based" doesn't actually mean redpilled, but it often is used in a related way.

The more encompassing meaning:
"Based means being yourself. Not being scared of what people think about you. Not being afraid to do what you wanna do. Being positive. When I was younger, based was a negative term that meant like dopehead, or basehead. People used to make fun of me. They was like, 'You’re based.' They’d use it as a negative. And what I did was turn that negative into a positive. I started embracing it like, 'Yeah, I’m based.' I made it mine. I embedded it in my head. Based is positive."

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.
Couple months back I was tetrising my stuff, and since she was already ringing my stuff up I was up by the register, and was about halfway through emptying my cart when some guy comes up and starts putting his stuff on at the end of the conveyor. I had a pretty big order and could only grab so many things so fast, and the checkout girl was going pretty fast, too, so his stuff started coming up on me before I was done unloading my cart, and there was this traffic jam and he had to start moving his stuff out and it was like what the fuck dude you wait until somebody's finished.

He said that because I was up by the checkstand that that meant I was just about done. But I was putting stuff by the checkstand so that I wouldn't fill up the entire thing with stuff spaced out along the entire conveyor belt so that when I was done someone could start loading behind me.

Around here, they tend to run the conveyors early and often, so it's hard to really tetris the stuff on the belt. I settle for putting heavier stuff nearer to the cashier and lighter stuff further out; easier to grab and easier for the bagger to put that stuff in a bag first

I haven't used a conveyer checkout in a year probably. I'm twice weekly but small loads grocery guy for the most part and I always use self checkout. Kroger phased out the 15 or less lines in favor of more self check stations and it never seems worth it to me to be in one of the lines behind 9,000 can lady.

Self checkout is fine for small loads with no alcohol. I'm twice weekly medium loads, always with fresh produce (kumquats are a PITA via selfcheck). I don't really understand why people have feelz about the divider. I put it down when my all my stuff is on the conveyor to signal to the next guy he can start putting his stuff out. If the person in front of me hasn't put it out, I'll put it down and start loading once their stuff is all up. I don't have expectations or opinions on divider etiquette, save that the store should have two dividers so that when the cashier pushes it in the channel it pushes another one to the back of the conveyor where can reach it from behind the guy in front of me and get started on unloading.

I think if the wife and I were more small trips more often, I'd be a self-check guy. I mean, I am if I'm stopping off for a few things becasue I want to cook something special. But the normal pantry & fridge stocking is usually a once a week thing, so it's a push-cart instead of basket load.
