  • It depends on if my kids are with me. If they are, by that point, they're getting to the point where they'll start misbehaving, so I don't let someone go ahead of me b/c I want to get out of there before the kids start acting up. But, if I'm alone, I will let someone go ahead of me. As my kids get a little older and are more patient, then I will do it when they're with me, to teach them about being nice and being generous, but we're just not there yet. lol

  • try, but they often try to shoo me forward to go before them, because I apparently have a cute attentive toddler (their words, not mine) every one wants to play with.

  • Yes, but always go throught the self checkout and when someone does this I am for some reason always in the middle of checking out.
