Yesterday, Saturday, March 30th, I stopped into my local Super Wal-Mart to pick up some Easter candy for my brother's kids, whom I was having over for Easter dinner. I walked into the store around late afternoon. I immediately thought of this thread, because out of ~ 30 registers, only FIVE were open, and I kid you not, each checkout lane was filled with no fewer than 9 customers, each of whom had lots of items to check out. I actually took the time to stand there and count the people in each lane. Not one of the express lanes was open, either. I would've walked out had it not been for the fact that I needed to get the candy for those kids. The wait was ridiculous, and on a Saturday afternoon--the busiest shopping day of the entire week.
