I swear, I only see women doing this. Picture it--I'm patiently waiting in line at the local sack o shit and watching the woman in front of me stack her mountain of groceries onto the conveyor belt. Now, the grocery store conveyor belts are not 100% conveyor belt--they all have 6 to 8 inches of flat space at the end of the conveyor.
So, the woman completely fills the conveyor belt, and has more shit. The conveyor belt is stationary while the clerk completes the transaction of the customer in front of the woman. What does the woman (and nearly every danged woman) do? She stacks more shit on the stationary part of the counter. You know, the stationary part--the part that does not "convey" the groceries to the clerk. And she doesn't even get all of the shit out of her cart! Why oh why do women do this? Now, she has to move the groceries not once, but twice. Once the conveyor resumes operation, she must move the groceries onto the conveyor belt. Notwithstanding this, as often as not an item that is half on and half off of the conveyor will cause a tumble and shit will fall onto the floor or fall over.
Why? Is she afraid that the conveyor belt will shift into high gear and move so quickly and the clerk will bag her groceries so quickly that she will not have time to place her remaining groceries onto the belt? Is she afraid of waiting the handful of seconds for more space to become available on the belt? Really, I'm cluelesss? Why do you all do this?
