So useful an item; a miniature border. This is mine, and that is yours.

I put mine on the belt long-wise, no one uses the other side?

The proper use for those, is to beat the ever loving shite out of those customers who trundle umpteen more items than the "15 Items", into the Express Checkout.

And shove up their arse, sidewise, for good measure.

Hmm, I sense a collectables market niche here. Gerard, you are ahead of the curve once again. The only thing similar to this is this guy I know has 50, maybe 60 shopping carts in his back yard.

I have a couple of Safeway's dividers, pre-millenials, in mint condition.

Well, Jim, it all depends on what the meaning of "15 items" is. Do you count each blueberry in the package? I count as one item whatever I can grab from the basket with one hand.

Barbossa: First, your return to shore was not part of our negotiations nor our agreement so I must do nothing. And secondly, you must be a pirate for the pirate's code to apply and you're not. And thirdly, the code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules. Welcome aboard the Black Pearl, Miss Turner.
