I may actually be coming to hate Groupons.

I do loathe people who wait until you have everything totaled up and THEN tell you they have one.

The deepest level: the idiot who, at totaled-up time, asks wife "Didn't we have a Groupon?", then(over her protests, I might add) spends five minutes standing in front of the register trying to find one before deciding "Let's just pay for it, we'll find that and use it next time."

This could be solved in seconds: a sign at each checkout affirming the establishment's policy "coupons not accepted unless presented before transaction starts."

The signs are the easy part, getting the retailer to man up on the policy will be the impossible part.

And, while they're at it, pick one or two checkouts and label the others "no checks accepted at this register-cash/credit/debit only."
