THURSDAY, DECEMBER 22ND., 2016
I paid a visit to my local Wal-Mart yesterday.
The place was filled with holiday shoppers. And
the routine is always the same.
Everyone roams the store as quickly as possible
then makes a run towards the check out line.
Here's the way it works. You cruise right by
those check out lines searching for the one that
will get you out quickly. That means you've either
got to find one just waiting for a customer or you've
got to pick one with only one customer ahead of
you and hopefully with a very few items in his or
her shopping cart.
Of course there are no guarantees. Just about
the time you get behind that one guy with just
a few items you find he's got trouble with his
credit or debit card. While you're waiting for
the problem to be resolved, three people with
totally loaded carts breeze through the lines to
your left and right.
These days you can choose to scan your own
items and pay your bill with a card or cash....to
Seems everybody's looking for ways to
avoid the lines. I even found one customer who
decided to park their car in a manner that
effectively tied up two parking spots. Of course
it was fairly close to the front doors! Chances
are the driver couldn't stay in the lines in a
coloring book with.
Hope you remember your Senior discount
and that all your NEWS is good.
