You pick the fast lane for one basket only. But why is the fast lane
always the one which sells ciggies? The shopper in front of you,
after having finished the purchase and paid, then proceed to ask
for a packet of ciggies, usually 10. The checkout lady struggles to
reach the correct ciggy pack high up. After having seen the '10' on
the desk, the shopper will then change his choice to a '20' packet.
And so it goes on. Happens ALL the times.

The smallish Sainsburys where I shop has this arrangement.
