I distinctly remember one time shopping at this grocery sometime in the summer of 2000, waiting in line to buy a bottle of mineral water and some gummi worms. The woman in front of me began bitching into the person in front of her for not "moving up" fast enough. He wasn't up next, but she wanted to record her progress in the line with actual steps forward, like in a stop-and-go traffic jam, I suppose. I wanted to chime in with something like 'Your moustache usually scares them forward automatically, huh?', but that would have been just too mean. When someone's that antsy and rude, they're already hurting too much.
