“I really want to buy a supermarket checkout divider, but the cashier keeps putting it back”

The supermarket checkout dividers are not for sale, but a joke was posted on Twitter by sickipediabot on June 13, 2013:

“No matter how much I try and buy supermarket conveyor belt dividers, the cashier keeps on putting them back!”

Went to the supermarket to buy one of their conveyor belt dividers. The logistics didn’t really work out so well.
