Shoppers Rage...

The equalivelent of road rage for those of us who do not drive often, but shop alot.
It's that feeling of wanting to strangle the impossible customer ahead of you in line, and slap the clerk for letting him get away with it.
You know the guy at the store, late at night when the customer service desk is closed and there are only two clerks. One has an impossibly long line, the other line is for 10 items or less.
Ahead in line is a guy in the "express" check out, returning 4 items that he does not have a receipt for, chatting with the clerk like she has nothing better to do than listen to his long boring story about why he has to return them and has no receipt. The clerk, working the closing shift started working there three days ago and has to call the supervisor who is asleep somewhere in the stock room. The sleepy manager finally arrives to issue a gift card (no receipt) and of course the guy argues and demands to see the bosses boss. Idiot. The Seventeen year old manager is all that is available and the guy is invited to return his items during the day when people with experience work.
He finally takes the gift card and proceeds to dig fifteen lotto tickets out of his pocket to cash in. Finally he leaves.
My turn. The clerk smiles sweetly and asks, "So how's your night going?" and I just want ask her why she let that jerk take an hour in the express line, all the while hoping she hurries with me so that I get to the parking lot before the smart guy who was ahead of me leaves, praying he parked next to me so I can ding the side of his car with my door before leaving...

Shopping rage... tomorrow's headline, it's only a matter of time before the public discovers there are more shoppers out there like me.
