    That was a very amusing and interesting read. Your mind works a lot like mine, apparently. My solution is SIMD -- amortize the time spent in line by buying more food at once. I go grocery shopping as infrequently as I can bear and fill my cart as much as it can bear, or sometime two carts if the whole family comes along.

    Time of day matters too. At night, the ratio of customers to cashiers is much higher. Although the total number of customers is smaller so the shopping is easier, the longer time spent in line dominates and makes the experience less pleasant.
