Sometimes I think there should be a ban on retirees shopping/banking/going to the post office/etc during the hours of 12-1, when most working people are on their lunch break and trying to run errands.
I waited in line at Wal-Mart for 25 minutes while an old lady (definatly not of working age) bought cat food, changed her mind, bought it again, forgot her coupon, tried to beg the cashier to give her the coupon discount anyway, searched for exact change, gave up, and then filled out a check for $3.19 while she had a $10 bill in her hand. This wasn't the first time something like this has happened to me. It always happens at the post office...at 12pm there is a line of about 40 people, 80% of whom are 'older' and clogging the line, and if I go at say, 4pm, there is no line whatsoever.
When this happens I always want to say, "Excuse me, but could you let me go ahead of you so I can get back to work so you can get your social security check?"
Sorry, just venting.
