Frustrations

I happened to hit this grocery store on Senior Discount Wednesday.  It was teeming with little old ladies such as myself. There must have been 35 or 40 of us. I have decided I am a tad bit faster than the average little old lady so this experience was driving me nuts. How long should it take to decide if you want chocolate frosting or vanilla frosting? The aisles are narrow and you can do nothing, but grit your teeth and mutter to yourself. We each had to take turns standing in front of the expensive meat counter admiring all the steaks and roasts and other beef cuts before we could move on.  That slowed things down a tad.  When I finally decided to check out I was lucky or so I thought. There was one check out lane that was just opening and I was first. I unloaded everything on the counter and the clerk was trying to get the money machine to work. He had to call an expert and she couldn’t get it to work. So after my lucky break I ended up loading my groceries back into my cart and went to a different checkout counter. That was my day here in the fast lane.
