Rob's Supermarket "Shake Your Head" Experience

This weekend I went to the local Safeway supermarket to pick up about 20 items. It was a Saturday morning at 10am and there were just 2 check out lines open (in addition to self-check). You can't buy a gift card in self check out, so I had to wait in line. There were four people ahead of me, one with the clerk, then another with a grocery cart, one solo woman standing in line with a few items, and a woman ahead of me with a loaded cart.
  After about 10 minutes, one person moved up, so the woman who was standing solo was next in line after the person being checked out. That's when the woman's husband wheeled up a grocery cart that was overflowing and he pulled up beside her.
  The woman behind them (and in front of me) looked back at me, rolled her eyes and let out a sigh of disgust. I was a little put off, too.   I can understand bringing your full cart in line while your partner runs off to get a few more things, but not to stand in line with a few things and let your other half spend 30 minutes filling up a grocery cart and suddenly cut the line and make the people behind you wait all the more.
  What do YOU think?

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
