Default That Black and Yellow striped line on the floor means somthing.

I am amazed that people will see something new and still ignore it.

I have black and yellow tape on the floor 3 1/2 feet back from the counter and a sign saying please stay behind the line but they still walk right up to the counter and lean on it.
Well into the 6 foot distance they should maintain.

I'm just waiting for someone to come in coughing and then get offended when I ask them to leave the store.

I think an electrified barbed wire fence six feet from the counter wouldn't stop those people.

But it would be entertaining and possibly slow them down.

And here I'm thinking that a bit of signage about effective taser distance ("You WILL be TASED"), accompanied by an animatronics manikin that twitches and moans just a bit...

Most would get the idea, but given what site we're on, this might lead to more idiots crowding the counter, asking what the signs and stripes are for, including stepping over the manikin.

Default Cough

I suggest starting a coughing fit as soon as they cross the line and point to it.

Of-course, if they call your boss become innocent and clear throat-ed and say "I thought customer were suppose to be behind the line, I was only drawing their attention to the line that is clearly there and clearly signed.".

Replace the tape with lumpy bright red-orange paint. Put up a sign that says: Caution! Floor is Lava.

Extra points if you can figure out how to make the floor hot.

Pretty smart until...

Oh, look. Someone put a table in front of the counter. Let me move that for you.
