The Christmas Eve Dash and Dart
5 o’clock and the time ticks away …
I made three trips for supermarket safari. And this last trip I got in just under the wire. The store was packed 6 deep and more with three wickets open.
People here are NOT in the Christmas Spirit mood. Especially when you are in the mad dash and dart express checkout. Because the express check out also does lottery, bottles, returns and all that crap.
I got in line – there were 5 people ahead of me. And I waited. The man in front of me had four items and he was playing push me pull me in line. He was openly in a hurry because he kept moving to the head of the line around folks to see what the cashier was doing. (bottles)
A woman behind me started bitching about the wait. And I was like you get to wait because he is also doing bottles and check out, bouncing from one register at the bottle station and the express register. She clearly was not happy at all.
As I stood there, the 15 minute to closing announcement was made. People were crammed in line. Finally our little man got to my checkout and I was out of there.
Patience is a virtue except when you are in the express check out line.
Hubby should be at the bus station right about now. And should be home in a little while.
More to come, stay tuned…
