SPEEDYMy trips to WalMart are infrequent … but when I do go … it is often an experience!  Take today for example.  All I bought was a can of Off Insect spray and dish detergent.  With 2 items in hand I headed for:

SPEEDY CHECKOUT…20 ITEMS OR LESS

WOMAN IN FRONT OF ME…34 ITEMS

WAS TOLD IT WAS TOO MANY

TOLD CASHIER “DIVIDE IT INTO 2 SEPARATE ORDERS”

PAID WITH COMBINATION OF DEBIT CARD, CHECK & FOOD STAMPS

WAS TOLD DEBIT CARD DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH CASH

WAS TOLD SHE COULD NOT USE FOOD STAMPS FOR CERTAIN ITEMS.

SAID “WAIT A MINUTE” AND CALLED HER HUSBAND ON HER iPHONE

HE CAME FROM WHERE HE WAS SITTING 20′ AWAY

HE PAID FOR ENTIRE ORDER WITH A $100 BILL

SHE LOOKED AT ME AND SAID “WERE YOU IN A HURRY?”

I SAID “NO, THAT’S WHY I COME TO THE SPEEDY CHECKOUT LANES.”
