“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Showdown at the supermarket
Sunday, February 7, 2010

Ad: Excuse me, ma'am, but you are way over the limit of groceries for the express lane.

Petulant woman: I am not.

Ad: I count ... twenty-something items there. Maybe thirty.

Petulant woman: I'm in a big hurry.

Ad: We're all in a big hurry. You're supposed to reserve this lane for times when you just need to run in and run out and get a few items.

Petulant woman: You're a man. You wouldn't understand.

Ad: On the contrary. I'm a stat-at-home dad and trophy husband. I multi-task just like you to survive the day. I understand completely.

AND SHE IGNORES ME AND STAYS IN THE LANE!

So, I ask you, dear readers: How much is too much in the supermarket express lane? Should I be allowed to use the express lane if I have 11 items? 20? 16?
