I was in the six items express lane at the store, quietly fuming.
Completely ignoring the sign, the man 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 man to come forward looking into the cart and asked sweetly,
"So which six items would you like to buy?"I have no idea who wrote the above. It came in an email from my uncle and struck such a familiar, annoying chord that I had to share it.
