Thornton P. Knowles On Checkout Lines

The middle-aged woman standing in front of me in a supermarket checkout line turned and said, "Look at me, I'm sweating like a pig! I don't understand it, I've been through the change!" I didn't know this woman, or what to say. To prove her point, the woman presented a bare, sweaty arm and said, "Touch it!" When I refused, she turned away in disgust. The lady waiting behind me tapped me on the shoulder and asked, "What's wrong with you?" Checkout lines can be crazy and hostile. I hate them.
