Here are the reasons I'd like to thank Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target, and my local grocer for having 25 checkout lanes and only three open at any given time.
- I can run next door and pick up my dry cleaning.
- I can catch up on my magazine reading without buying any.
- I can catch a quick catnap now rather than on the drive home.
- I can finally apply my top coat of nail polish with plenty of drying time.
- I can practice my standup comedy routines on unsuspecting fellow customers.
- I can assess what other people have in their carts and get exciting new dinner ideas.
- I have time to leave my cart in line and run back to get the 13 things on my list I forgot.
