Dear Flower Bird, I am sorry if I upset you so badly though you see I do have an excuse.
I do know most of the check out girls in the two supermarkets I use and usually they see me coming and smile with "Oh at last some one I know will not blame me for all their woes, money problems, lost loves, OH getting drunk and depositing supper on carpet etc", we smile and chat whilst I quickly make everything disapear into two bags I always have ready and have my wallet out with cards loose ready to pay, a cheery goodbye and gone. Probably the fastest packer on any till, I leave the poor check out girl to the next customer who will be steaming from the ears and take it out of her/him just because they are there.
They cannot escape as we can and a smile is far better than steaming to a boiling point over a bit of chat.
Now people who pack it all away slowly, then search through three bags for a purse or wallet, then cannot find their cards, have to put the card in the slot six times as they forgot their pin, now that makes me boil.
