Of all the challenges we encounter when we do our shopping, this must be the biggest ever. You have done all your shopping and you are ready to pay and go home. For me, that means that I am really ready to go home. As soon as I have all my things in my cart or basket, I just want to leave the supermarket and head to the next thing. However, there is one thing that stands between me and my freedom. The cash registry.

When you are shopping, you are never alone. Which means that there will be multiple cash registries open and they will all have a line. And the biggest challenge is how you can pick the best line to make sure you are out as fast as you can.
