Don’t you hate it when you choose the slow line at the checkout counter? Here’s Eric with how to pick wisely in The Roby Files.

I have the knack of always choosing the slowest line in any store. Next is the decision do I stay in the slow line or go to a faster line.

Researchers found people last in line are twice as likely to move to another line and that typically means you will wait longer. Researchers say the reason for the bad decision making is something called last place aversion.

We hate being last so much that people who are in the back of the line are 20 percent less satisfied as anyone else. That forces people to move to other lines that might be even longer.

Bottom line, pick a line and stick with it.

The final price is $8,500,000 million. The new owners were willing to pay because they are huge Greta Garbo fans.
