The holiday shopping rush is upon us here in New York.

This weekend, you might be out and about picking up gifts, but if you head to Wegmans or any other grocery store, please don't be this person.

With more and more people choosing to use the self-checkout option since many other checkout lines are closed or the ones that are manned by employees are long and full of customers, make sure you are aware of the line behind you.

If you are using the self-checkout, please don't do this. This happened to me twice this week and it is VERY annoying.

People who are done using the self-checkout end up staying at the checkout area talking with someone. They are done, there is a line, but it seems like they don't care and they are going to take a checkout register and sit there and talk.

Once when I was in the checkout line, a lady ended up having her dog with her and after she was done checking out she was talking to the employee for like five minutes.

I don't mind if they chat, but the lady should have moved out of the way to carry on their conversation.

It WAS obvious that there was a line, and the employee should also have been respectful of the people in line and moved to the side with the lady to continue their talk.

So if you are out shopping and using the self-checkout, please scan and pack your items and move along. Let the other people who just want to get their groceries, go ahead and pay and go home!
