The Long Line Theory

Posted in Random Thoughts, Words with tags , , , on January 21, 2011 by BassNinjaDGrizzly

Ever notice that when you’re waiting in a long line, all of the other lines seem to move way faster than yours? Old ladies lumbering by with overflowing shopping carts are suddenly paid, bagged, and on their way out of the store before the kid at the top of your queue finishes fishing around in his pocket for a quarter to pay for his pack of gum. BUT, the second you switch to that new line, the register breaks down and the line you were just in seconds ago starts handing out free puppies and priceless jewels. It’s not a case of The Grass is Always Greener.. Ok, maybe it’s a subset. Its The Long Line Theory. And I think I need to take a lesson in patience.
