  • And to round off, it would seem that having held the rank of  Kings and Queens when it comes to queuingwe are becoming less patient with it all and it might even lead to a bit of geriatric          Fistycuffs if Maude doesn't get to pay  for her tin of processed peas, a tomato, 20 Regal King Size and a bottle of Sherry within 10 minutes.  Personally I am all for a little bit of fun in the supermarket queue, however friends tell me "You are not funny" and "You take the joy out of shopping".  If you see a lunatic with huge headphones on, making a right racket and scaring grannies and checkout girls, that's me.
