If I select the shortest supermarket checkout queue, I will automatically find myself behind one of the following :

(A) an irritated customer who cannot accept that their bloody vouchers are out of date;

(B) a customer who tries it on with several expired or maxed-out cards;

(C) a little old lady who, when she eventually locates her purse in one of her several bags, then pays the 37.62 bill in two pence pieces that the cashier has to count out for her. Twice.

Still, there's the compensation of extra people-watching time. Mostly the people in the much longer queues either side of you who get out of the shop ten minutes before you do.
