It is NEVER express! Today a woman was pissing everyone off. I tried to be sympathetic because she was older. She was writing a check and every few letters she would talk to the cashier about anything/nothing. The cashier was smiling politely but tensely. Finally the woman finished her check but then stood entering and calculating her checkbook! Hello?!?! There are tables just a few feet ahead could you please move?! There are not may people who still write checks. My mom still does but doesn't take very long. Plus, the express lane is for 15 items or LESS not 25 items!! I guess I am just irritated today!
