We have another entry from the States. The lovely Miss Cellania also reports on a Wal*mart queue but this time it’s in the state of Kentucky:
I am sad to say that my digital camera died when I dropped it on vacation last week. But I did stand in a line this morning at a discount store that I hate to patronize, but sometimes have no choice.
I noticed that there were two checkout options. The express lane (for ten items or less), or the self-serve line, which I have never tried (and don’t intend to). The other 25 checkout lanes were closed. This is the case most mornings when they aren’t busy. I went through the express lane, then remarked to the clerk that I originally had 15 items, but I decided not to buy five of them because of the checkout situation. I doubt she understood, or cared.
There is a photo of an interesting queue today at Arbroath:
