Brickbats to:  the idiot who held up the express line at the Knollwood Cub grocery store earlier this evening.

Instead of the clearly marked “15 items or less,” they easily put twice that many items on the conveyor belt.

Then, when the cashier told her what she owed, she didn’t have it, and had to decide which items to have the cashier un-ring.

Between the soda, ice cream, chips, and candy, it took her — I don’t know — 10 (more) minutes to decide what to do without.  

Kudos to:  the Cub employee who saw all the people behind this clod doing a slow burn, and hastened to open up another checkout line.  

Before somebody physically accosted aforesaid idiot (who, needless to say, could have done without any of the soda, chips, candy, etc.).
