I'm talking with a friend the other day about the crowds at Wal-Mart and the number of check out lanes that are open. On some days you stand in line for ever waiting to check out because only 5 lanes are open, when they've got many more that could be used.

He told me this guy came in, bought a pack of gum and that was it. I couldn't believe that, when a convenience store would be so much quicker and easier. Why would you fight the Wal-Mart crowd for a pack of gum? I just had to laugh and it got me to thinking what is the smallest thing I would run into Wal-Mart for...it wouldn't be a pack of gum, that's for sure.
