Beware of the Line Storms!!

July 14, 2010 1 comment

I was in Duane Reade the other day and the term “Line Storm” just popped into my head.

I am sure you all know what I am talking about. A Line Storm is the inexplicable way you can walk into a Duane Reade one moment and see absolutely no one on the line, and your heart just jumps for joy, maybe even skips a beat you are so excited.

You progress forward, after several minutes of disorientation you find the products that you need. You rush back to the front of the store… only to find like ten people on the line.

You have been hit by a Duane Reade Line Storm!! Chances of Survival: Excellent. Chances of Despair: 100% !

Forest Hills Chutzpah – (Part 1 of a continuing series)

So I’m just getting on the line at Natural the other evening, when I hear these words spoken at the front of the line:

“Excuse me, do you mind if I just pay for these before you? I’m double-parked outside.”

I can’t believe my ears and turn to glance to the front of the line. I see a well-dressed, middle-aged lady standing there talking to another lady who is at the front of the line with her teenage son. “The nerve!” I say to myself.

“Sure,” says the lady with her son. She then glances behind her and I couldn’t tell if she was embarrassed to have allowed the woman to cut in front of her, or if she herself is repulsed by the chutzpah!

Me – repulsed by the chutzpah, biggie time!!
