Was at the local grocery store last week and the self-service check-out registers were all down during a major Sunday rush. While I was disappointed and frustrated with my single gallon of milk in the “15 or less” line, this guy was walking around just sort of talking loudly to himself about the inconvenience.
We get accustomed to certain routines and sometimes fail to adapt to change. This fellow walked around, unable to commit to a regular checkout line as if his internal programming failed to understand what he was supposed to do. He uttered error messages, perhaps hoping to get the attention of the systems administrator for his mind.
By the time i had checked out he was standing, muttering, staring into the convenience refrigerator of milk at the end of an aisle.
