At the Rite Aid
Overheard at the Chase Street Rite Aid, while thirty shoppers waited in a single-file line while waiting to pay the lone cashier on duty:
Shopper one, a man: What they got all these cash registers for, if they only gonna use one of ’em.
Shopper two, a woman: Waiting around, you know.
One: Getting to know each other out here.
Two: It’s like, talk amongst yourselves.
One: Don’t they know people need jobs?
(A third shopper, a man, cuts line, standing just behind the customer at the front.)
Two: The line’s back here.
Three: What? Really?
Two: (Laughing) Yeah, you know it ain’t gonna be that easy.
Three: Oh, OK.
Two: You about to start World War Twelve over a bag of potato chips.
Customer Four, a woman: She said, ‘World War Twelve over a bag of potato chips!’
