Don’t you hate when you go out shopping and you get stuck in the slow line at the cash?
That happened to me earlier today. I went out this afternoon to do some shopping and after I’d picked out my items at the store I got in line to pay for my items. There was only one person ahead of me so I thought I’d get out of the store quickly. Boy was I wrong!
It’s not that the person ahead of my was slow – counting pennies or anything like that. No. You see the cashier was trying out a new bar code scanner … a Symbol LS2208 or something like that, and the manager was with her as she tested out the new equipment.
From what I could tell the scanner was working fine, but the manager kept making her use it over and over again, redoing the person ahead of me’s bill etc. Before I knew it I had a line of complaining people behind me who were also tired of waiting in line.
It would have been nice if the manager picked a quieter time in the store to test out the new scanner.
All the time I was standing in that line I kept worrying that my parking meter’s time was going to run out. It would figure I’d get a ticket … luckily that didn’t happen though. I made it back to the car just two minutes before the meter ran out.
