“How can the line possibly be this long? It’s gorgeous out! Why are all of these people at Sam’s Club?!” I couldn’t believe how long the lines were this afternoon. It was 60 degrees out. Shouldn’t all of those people have been out and enjoying the weather, not crammed into a giant warehouse store? Of course, I was annoyed because I was only purchasing a package of chicken breasts. I should have known better. You can never go into Sam’s Club and buy just one item. It’s a warehouse store!
As I wavered between lines, trying to choose the one that would move the fastest, I appeased my grumbling stomach by promising myself a huge Sam’s soda. Of course, I chose the slower line. Never choose the line that seems the shortest- it always takes the longest! And as I got closer to the checkout, I saw that they were all out of cups. No soda for me! And that would be the last time I stood on line at Sam’s Club with just a package of chicken breasts in my hand, surrounded by people pushing two and three carts full of merchandise.
