I ran into a SS at Walmart tonight.
I know, I know, I'll give you all a minute to get over your shock [/sarcasm]
Throughout the store there are a few of those price scanners in the aisles so that you can do a quick price check without having to find a cashier. I went to check on a soccer ball and saw that the scanner I wanted was in use by a woman with a very full cart. So I patiently waited for 4-5 minutes before I realized that she was scanning every single
item in her cart. I decided that I would pick up a few other things I needed and come back. 15 min later, she was still there, scanning away. Personally, I've never used the scanners for more than 2 or 3 things at a time, but live and let live, right? First come, first serve; she has just as much right to use the machine as I do. So, I gave up on the scanner, wandered around for a while longer and eventually decided to get in line to check out. As it usually happens, as soon as I picked a line, I remembered the one thing I actually came to the store to get. I happened to notice on my way out that the woman was gone, but she had left a HUGE pile of stuff on the floor in front of the scanner.
