Six Item Express Lane

Clip_323I was in the six item express lane at the supermarket quietly fuming.

Completely ignoring the sign, the woman ahead of me had slipped into the check-out line pushing a cart piled high with groceries.

Imagine my delight when the cashier beckoned the woman to come forward, looked into the cart and asked sweetly, “So which six items would you like to buy?”

Wouldn’t it be great if that happened more often?

Because they had no reservations at a busy restaurant, my elderly neighbour and his wife were told there would be a 45 minute wait for a table.

“Young man, we’re both 90 years old,” the husband said.

“We may not have 45 minutes.”

They were seated immediately.

The reason politicians try so hard to get re-elected is that they would hate to have to make a living under the laws they have passed.
