Complain to lidl that local store don't angrily throe your shopping at you

I've moved to a more upmarket area. The staff in lidl are too nice, they let people back stuff as it scans and so it takes ages.
I really miss the quickness of my last place where they virtually throw things at you and shout if you try to pack.
They just haven't trained the staff here properly right?

I would complain . My main reason for shopping in these places is the quickness of the checkouts.....I also like to see if I can beat the cashier and get it all packed as they do it.
Yes I need to get out more, but it makes the food shopping a bit more exciting

I've always wondered what Lidl Woukd do if someone refused their system of throwing stuff in their trolley and instead said no I think I ll pack my own things here?
Can they make you throw your stuff in a trolley? Can they ban you for being a slow shopper?

I love this sport...dh came beat the cashier every time. If im on my own they sometimes start packing for me. The answer is being prepared. I have three large seasalt bags. I open them wide and already have placed the food stuff at the front. On your marks get set go!!!!!

I've always found Aldi to be much faster than Lidl, which are quite civilised in comparision.
Once, when I was a less experienced Aldi shopper, I failed to keep up, mainly due to the shopper in front of me not getting out of the way in time, so I was already behind by the time I had positioned my trolley.
When the end of checkout bit of scanned goods filled up, the cashier simply swept it all into my trolley, and onto the floor using her arm. Luckily there was nothing breakable, but I was so shocked I couldn't say anything.

I live in Germany and felt a proper sense of British queue rage this morning in Woolworth's. I was waiting all nicely like a normal person would (obv) when several people walked straight past me to wait directly behind the person who was having their items put through on the second till. Okay so the person at the till nearer me had a mountain of stuff and looked like they would take ages, but till #2 person wasn't even finished! I was so nonplussed that I didn't move and then became more and more distressed as people kept getting served at till #2 even though they hadn't waited properly.
I do enjoy the moment in Lidl though when they open a new till and you have to decide whether to abandon your place in your current queue and bomb the new one or to wait and hope that everyone in front of you tries to do that. Both are perfectly legitimate things to do.
