You don't see that very often

I'm the third person of five in line with only one other checkout line open and the clerk asks him for a 2nd piece of ID with his signature on it. He gives her one, she scrutinizes it, compares it with the receipt he just signed and asks if he's got another one. He goes through a couple cards before he finds one and she decides the signature is okay. Handwriting expert in disguise?

Poll #1244947 All queued up?

Have you ever walked out of a store without buying what you wanted because the checkout lines were too long?

Been there, done that!

I've left before. For instance, if I didn't really *need* whatever it was and something was happening that was ridiculous -- like one line at the grocery store open with a trainee working the register, having to price-check every item, etc.

Now I have the hiccups. Somehow, I would like to blame your poll for this.

And four people standing around talking instead of opening another 2 or 3 lanes. Oh, yeah. Thinking about it later, I wish I'd taken the cart up to them and told them the 1 line open was too long. Would they please put this stuff back on the shelves 'cause I'm leaving instead of waiting all day.

It's the book answer that did it, right? You could just picture me standing there fifth in line, leaning on a shopping cart, drawing some rather strange looks as I'm laughing over some incident in the book I'm reading. :D
Since it's all my fault I better give you my remedy for hiccups.
1. Fill a large 1 liter glass with water.
2. Take a deep breath and hold it while you
3. Drink the whole glass of water and
4. Count to 20.
5. Repeat until the hiccups are gone!

I thought peanut butter was the answer?

There's probabaly a lot of home remedies you can try. I haven't heard of peanut butter. What do you do with it?
A little late now but Live Search is my friend!

What does Live Search do? Oh, for hiccups?

For peanut butter, just swallow a bunch of it. I guess that changes your breathing pattern a bit and helps cure the hiccups. It works for me sometimes.

I always seem to forget about eHow.com until it comes up on my search engine! :)
