Anyone who has shopped at Aldi will be all too familiar with the record-breaking speed the cashiers like to whizz your items through.
And while some of us relish the challenge, others find the whole thing a bit of a nightmare and struggle to keep up.
But it seems as though some people didn't know that if you're feeling a bit overwhelmed, you can simply speak up and tell the cashier to slow down and they will.
Posting in the Aldi Mums Facebook group one shopper wrote: "You can ask them to slow down, I do. They don't mind. And never had a rude checkout operator either."
And others were quick to agree that the cashier is more than happy to drop the breakneck scanning speed if necessary.
One replied: "I always ask the checkout workers at my local Aldi to slow down a bit, so I don't get overwhelmed.
"They always say yes and it's always very pleasant, never had a problem."
But there's also been some bizarre 'hacks' in which people revealed they scrunched labels on certain items in an attempt to slow the cashier down. I mean, that sounds like a bloody awful idea for both you and the cashier, so maybe don't try that one yourselves.
Of course not everyone dislikes the fast-paced scanning. Personally, I like to spend as little time as possible shopping.
Its speedy cashiers get your shopping through a whopping 40 percent faster than its rival supermarkets, according to the Sun.
However, a spokesperson reiterated the point above, explaining: "Our employees are trained to operate the checkout at the right pace for each individual person they serve."
It's also handy to remember that Aldi actually doesn't encourage packing at its tills, but instead urges them to use the packing shelf.
Replying to a customer from its official Twitter account, Aldi said: "We ask that customers put their goods back in their trolley once they have been scanned at the checkout. We provide a packing shelf away from the till for customers to pack their shopping."
So now you know.
