Crystal Ball

Shorter Today In Megan McArdle's Blog: The economics of long grocery lines, which annoys me.

Shorter Tomorrow: The economics of dry cleaning for a woman half of a married couple, which annoys me.

Shorter Even Further From Now: The economics of putting up with the noise from the bar that I was eager to live next to, which now annoys me.

Hey, it beats blogging about things she doesn't understand and invariably gets wrong.

Bet she stands in the 10-or-over line counting the items in the short line baskets, getting mad because the shopper got the 10-for-cost-of-$5.00 items AND a frozen pizza! CHEATER! CHEATER! Faster lines are un-democratic!

I myself choose the longest line, grab a magazine and browse it while waiting. No stress: I'm not gonna seeth with rage if the shorter line actually takes longer than mine.
