Excuse Me Please

Long queues.

The worst thing if you are in a rush.

Even more frustrating if you knew it was your fault for not planning early. Ah!

Doubly frustrating if you knew it was your fault for poor planning BUT you made some contingency plans after all and STILL you are having to stand and queue to pay while time is fast running out…..

Which is where I was yesterday.

Stewing while tapping my foot.

Managed to catch myself and not be rude to the staff at the checkout counter. Though tempted to. I felt like asking her. “Why doesn’t your shop have something like a cordless barcode scanner to help speed things up?” But then, it’s not her fault.

So I smiled at her instead and said, “Excuse me please. Could I quickly pay this so I can go?” and gave her the exact amount…..
