What Self-Checkout Rules?
Checking out at Costco used to be a nightmare — and a major time commitment. Even if you just ran in to grab a (very large) box of croissants, actually paying for them and getting out of the store just wasn't worth the long slog at checkout. That is, until self-checkout lanes were implemented. Suddenly, it was possible to bypass the massive checkout lanes to scan an item or two and run out the door. Well, maybe. Given that there are always Karens and Kens everywhere you go, as one Redditor pointed out, the unspoken self-checkout rules are often broken.
But what are they? Many commenters said there weren't rules and chastised the original poster for implying there were. Nevertheless, there are some tasks at self-checkout that will ignite the ire of anyone behind you. Check out these unspoken rules and, if you decide to break them, proceed with caution.
