What makes an Express Checkout???

Traditionally in New Zealand, an express checkout at the supermarket is for people who are purchasing ten items or less. Sometimes twelve. But my flatmate recently noted that he couldn’t spot that definition near the express checkout sign at our local supermarket any more! So now, how do you define an express checkout??? These are some of the ideas we came up with:

  • As many items as you can balance on a watermelon
  • As many items as the checkout operator can scan in one minute
  • As many items as you can hang around your neck without stooping over
  • As many items as you can drive home in a go cart
  • As many items as your house pet can haul home for you
  • As many items as you can fit in one basket
  • As much as you like, but you may only purchase one drink
  • The weight of all your shopping may not exceed the weight of your firstborn child at birth
  • As many items as you can carry by using the front of your t-shirt as a sack
  • Items you purchase must not prevent a helium balloon from floating and must be few enough that a chihuahua could carry the helium balloons home for you without leaving the ground

That’s all I can think of for now. Any suggestions???
