Crazy supermarket check-out experience

I recently posted my experience at the opening week-end of a Fairway supermarket, an event that has been anticipated for years. The following passage got enough response that I thought I should move that particular conversation to this thread.

"So we were in and out in an hour and the check out would have been OK except for the lady in front of us who had OCD and inisted that her final tab be exactly $75.00 to use the coupon. If it was $76.40 she had to remove an item.....or add an item, until the total was EXACTLY $75.00. I must say the cashier really kept her cool, because she would have been justified in telling her off."

To be clear, it was a $10 off coupon when you spend $75 or more.

The original thread is

So, what do you do when the line comes to a screeching halt because of one person with a (to my mind) ridiculous issue? What should management do? In this case I couldn't move to another line because every line was long and I had gotten to the point of almost being able to unload my cart.
