They wouldn't have made the sign if it wasn't.

Love it.

I'm pretty sure it's less about people being stupid and more about making sure people don't ignore the rule.

Either way: hilarious.

I think it's funny, but the person who made this really meant it to be funny.

That's pretty funny, maybe it was meant for little kids. But hell even small kids don't need that kinda help.

@Daniel_Newton: And that is what store clerks and the customers should be learning to do on their own.

no, customers really are this retarded

Customer: Is this express?

Me: Yes

Customer: Can i come on this line?

me: Do you have 12 items or less?

Customer: no

Me: so no

Customer: but i have close to 12 items or less (Referring to a wagon full of groceries)!

Me: But you don't have 12 items or less do you?

Customer: No

(conversation carries on for 5 more minutes)

and shit like this happens every single day.

LOL, its more about people being lazy and wanting to take the easy route than being dumb I think.

The idiocracy is upon us, but it's not all bad. I mean at least that means we're not far off from the creation of Brawndo:

It's less about consumers being morons and consumers being smart and arrogant. Pretty much anyone shopping can count to 15. Express lane rules are rarely enforced and without enforcement, a good number of people will never follow the rules.

This sign is about trying to make people feel stupid for breaking the rule, but will likely fail since at the end of the day it takes less time to just ring the rule breaker up than sit there and argue with them.

I will say that I was once a cashier at wal-mart and was threatened with physical violence by a person who I turned away from the express lane that visibly had over 100 items in their cart, it may seem like common sense, but unfortunately common sense serves little function in todays world, just look at the comments on youtube, or the videos on youtube for that matter. Though this probably was a bad idea, insults the illiterate in two regards, they cant read 15 items or less anyway, and can't read 15 is this many either, nor would this help people who cant count to 15, so corporate fail
