I was at Zellers (Not sure if they have that in the US but if not its like Target or Walmart) and was in a lane waiting to pay for my stuff. When I get to the front of the line the cashier closes the lane and says 'Its my break sorry'. I was ok with that and go to the next lane. The cashier comes back five minutes later and then re opens her lane. I was behind two people in line but decided to wait instead of going back to her lane. When the customer at who was currently at the cash leaves the cashier from before closes her lane, comes over and shuts off the lane I'm currently in. She then just stands there and starts babbling with her friend. So now there is one lane open with some poor middle aged woman trying to serve a line of ten or so customers. This is when I gave up and decided to just leave.
This is one of the reasons why I dislike Department stores.
