What's the longest time you've ever spent in line in a store?

I'm asking because tonight I spent nearly 45 mins at Walmart!!! It's a week before Christmas and I think its rather ridiculous to have 1 regular line open and 4 express ones at 8 pm don't you? 5 lines open!!! And this store is always busy because there isn't another Walmart for a LONG ways away. Anyways, everyone was buying gifts and wrapping paper, trees and such and had a good 100 items in their cart I'd say of stocking stuffers plus their groceries. I waited and waited. When I finally got up to the cashier I looked behind me and saw 7 more ppl behind me with full carts. Hope no one bought ice cream...

  • bunch of rosesI like those long lines, because then I can read the mags for free and put them back on the stand when I get to the chekcout line.   hugsNo need to take home the trash when you can get right in the store while wating in those long lines. simple smile

  • You're lucky there were 5 lanes. At the walmart I go to, its rare to see more than 3 open lanes. I hate shopping during holidays.
