    • Today I was at the thrift store. I got a couple cute tops and a book at 40-50% off. The line was pretty long with just 3 cashiers, but it was moving. A man interrupts a cashier and asks if someone can open in the antique section. It was about 5:25pm and he says “I need to be somewhere by 6pm and I don’t want to wait in this freakin’ long line.”  I agree another cashier should open up, but in the meantime I thought who does he think he is, you‘re not special just wait like everyone else.

    • Yes, I’m patient as I LOVE to shop and sometimes waiting in a long line is part of the shopping experience.

    • does it really help to be a grouch?  I don’t like shopping, but if you need to get something-just make the best of it.

    • I am usually patient, but then again, I rarely shop in stores anymore as I don’t like crowds.

      Funny story...last Friday I was at the doctor’s office and an old woman was ahead of me appt. wise.  She was making such a stink because the poor doctor was an hour behind and the office was packed.  At one point, she yelled out loud about how horrible the office personnel and doctor are, that one of the staff members told her to clam up and deal with it.  I was laughing to myself as this is a specialist’s office and sometimes they can run behind.  The funny thing was she asked to make another appointment...Really?!, after she just complained...it takes all kinds!estatic

    • No I am not patient.  I will walk out of a store rather than wait in line.  Life is too short to wait in lines.  I also will not wait for a table at a restaurant.  

      I do wait in line at the thrift store because it’s cheap,and my money goes to a good local cause,  and because it is run by volunteers,  most of whom are 75 or 80 and just don’t move very fast.

    • Depends on how badly I need what I’m buying! Really the lines are what they are and most of the time the staff can’t do anything about it. So I try to stay patient  and if I can’t be patient then I decide if I really need what I’m getting.

    • Depends on the line and the situation. If the place is just busy I don’t mind waiting. But what makes me mad is when I see someone who obviously knows that people are waiting in line but they don’t have the consideration to hurry it along and get their business done. In Hawaii everyone knows everyone and the grocery line seems to be the place to catch up on how everyone’s family is. Lots of unnecessary chit chat.
