She stood in the queue watching as it barely moved. There was only one cashier checking out all the items from the never ending line of shoppers. It was as if they did not expect this to happen, they didn’t expect to be so popular and to have so many shoppers in their store. They always seemed so unprepared for the crowds, at least to me they did.
I had been waiting for what seemed like an eternity. I was tempted to leave the items and just go home, I’m sure I could find them online but for a higher price. I hated waiting, and with each second a higher price seemed worth it. It was a trade of for my time, to be able to enjoy the gift before I grow old in this queue.
Thank you for reading.
