  • I almost always offer them to go first, I appreciate when it's offered to me!

  • Yes because I never like to feel pressured. I usually look for the lines with the least people anyway.

  • Just depends. If I have all four of my kids probably not but when I am by myself absolutely. Just wish more people would reciprocate.

  • it depends, usually I try to cary 8-10 things without a basket, cause I go in for one item, if I have my hands full and I have my kiddo with me then no, I don't usually let them go first, but if I have a basket I do (depending on their attitude)

  • I always offer because I would hope someone would do the same for me

    Answer by June_Mama09 at 7:08 AM on May. 24, 2011

  • Yes, if I see the person behind me only has a few items I ask them if they would like to go ahead of me. Most of the time they take me up on it, other times they say they will wait.
