A silly little thing.

At Australian supermarkets, if you stand soft drink bottles upright on the checkout conveyor belt, they will invariably fall over when the belt moves.
(so you don't put bottles upright, you lay them on their sides).

In all the UK supermarkets I've been in so far, bottles happily stand upright and get conveyed forward on the belt.

Weird, huh ?
