Now one man has shared his technique that he employs to stop staff from overwhelming him.

While putting his shopping on the belt, he spreads it out so staff can't scan everything so quickly.

On TikTok, the man named Ciaran explained: "Top tip: spread all your shopping out and it gives you time to bag it so they don't throw it at you."

The video has been viewed more than 90,000 times since being shared on the platform.

Lots of viewers loved the idea, as one customer commented: "Need to do that, Aldi cashiers are way too fast."

Another added: "Very good, I'll use this next time."

A third commented: "This is the best life hack I've ever seen" while another replied: "Genius."

But some shoppers admitted they like the speed, while one supermarket worker said it wouldn't slow them down.

She commented: "Hahhaa people think this works, we'll just scan faster."

Another asked: "Where's the fun in that? I like to pack as fast as they scan, it's a game."

But one shopper said she simply asks the cashiers to slow down.

She commented: "Just ask them to slow down."

Meanwhile, others were worried it would result in a hike in price eventually.

One viewer warned: "It's cheap because they scan quickly and have less people working.

"Use the packing bench. Shop elsewhere if you don't like it."
