> "When you hit the express lane at the grocery store, it usually means you'll be rung up quickly and out the door fast."

A friend's dad was a manager at a supermarket - he says, in most stores, the slowest checkers are put on the express lanes, because they don't have to process as many items per person.

She died doing what she loved- getting her dirty gutter cleaned.

Is falling off a ladder really a freak accident?
Isn't that just an accident?

It's sad that old lady died, but lets not abuse the concept of freak accidents please. Those are things that you can't really plan for or forsee. An old lady falling off a ladder is something that happens once each minute.

The son killed her for the inheritance and insurance.
The staged it to look like an accident.

Hey, you guys that react with "Ha-Ha" any time someone's suffering: Why aren't you laughing at the family of the deceased? Surely they deserve your scorn; she was an inefficient worker. Now that she's dead, someone more efficient can take her place.

Why aren't you assholes gloating over this woman's death?

In small rural supermarket, there seems to always be that cashier that's slower than everybody, but that management always keep, because she talks to everybody, and old people love to come there just to have somebody to talk to at least once a day. They may not be very productive, but they are valuable.
There was a small supermarket in my parent's small town, who got rid of one such cashier after changing owners (she was old, maybe she just told she should retire). All the old folks suddenly went to the supermarket a bit further down the road instead.

"While no one was around to know what actually happened, her son said there was a ladder and leaf blower nearby. The family suspects she died after a fall."

Pretty sure what happened was Newton's third law followed by the second.

What is wrong with you?  Like, regular people don't feel an urge to say such nasty things, so what's different about you that makes you so unpleasant?

If you want to have a long conversation while checking out, go to Trader Joes.

They are waiting to see If she was vaccinated to determine if she deserved dying.

D'awww, that is a very sweet story. I hope her descendants carry her positive energy and people the earth.

FTA: Johnson said. "I think that register gave people a chance to express their feelings"...

Express your feelings in the express line using 10 words or less please.

What a lovely story!  There should be more people like her.  Many are remembered, but this is a  nicer way to be remembered.

Third rate whore in Toronto: What a lovely story!  There should be more people like her.  Many are remembered, but this is a  nicer way to be remembered.


Only if her lane is *NOT* labeled "express". I'm more than fed up with the idiots who can't get off their phone when they're up to the register, and the ones who don't start looking for their wallet until they're rung up, and of course, the ones with a completely full shopping cart going into the lane labeled "15 items or fewer".

whitroth: and the ones who don't start looking for their wallet until they're rung up,


I just have to boast, I usually have my card in the slot before they cashier has even started ringing things up.

I'm very angry with how shiatty people are. We don't HAVE to be like this.
