    Queue at Big C...WTF!

    Last night I went to Big C to grab a few supplies.When I got to the check-out,there were bloody great queues of people,most of them 6-10 deep.now this does piss me off a lot.Had a wee look up the many check-out counters and the ones about 25 metres away,didn't seem to have many people.On closer inspection,they had almost zero people waiting in line.

    Now my question folks,is why didn't the Thais have a look??They seemed quite content to wait a further 10-15 mins???I know that they don't mind waiting and generally don't care about things like this,but why would you wait,when there are mt check-outs.

    Standing in line is like riding on the bus: a great big excuse to do absolutely nothing.

    I got that at the ATM once.

    Two ATMs and four people all queuing up at the one machine .
    I asked if the vacant machine was working and got the reply
    'Don't know, but this one works because someone is using it'

    I used the vacant machine and got my money.

    Who needs an excuse for this? I perfected the art, much to the detriment of my customers.

    Big C is convenient for me,as they are on the way to daughters school. but they are quite happy to sell rotten food, the bastards caught me 4 the second time yesterday, Mummy picked up two packs o ribs, put them straight in the fridge when we got home, she opened them later that day and they were rotten, smell overpowering.
    CVNTS.
    I will spend the xtra 30 mins driving to Lotus in the future.

    You should take those rotten ribs back to Big C and hide them behind the cans or throw them on top of a high shelf
