In fact, some people would go this far to describe the payment process at Aldi as “Olympic sport,” and I probably wouldn’t dispute that.
However, there is a workaround if you find it all a bit too quick, and it’s a lot easier than you might expect, according to the Mirror.
During a conversation on a popular Facebook page, a woman revealed how she is solving the problem.
“You can ask them to slow down, I do,” she said. “They don’t mind. And I’ve never had a rude cashier, either. ”
Well, who knew?
Seems like she’s not alone in this theory, as dozens of people have rushed to support her.
“I always ask my local ALDI cashiers to slow down a bit, so as not to get overwhelmed,” said one social media user.
Someone else said, “They always say yes and it’s always very nice, never had a problem. ”
Aldi has his reasons for his cashiers to scan things so quickly, however.
When asked about this, the supermarket explained that staff members are “encouraged” to be as efficient as possible, which helps keep prices low.
