I flipped your list logic for customers. Instead of the items pulling customers, now the customers pull items. This way you have more control over how many items the customer should grab. I set it up so each customer takes exactly 5 boxes. I'm also using a Max Wait timer so the customers still go to the SadCustomers sink after 3 seconds.
