lineups due to holding up people who are genuinely in a hurry. Lotto-heads often compound the time-management problem by searching for the cheapest pack of cigarettes the store carries, thus forcing the cashier to scan numerous brands of smokes until the cheapest pack is found.Often a person on their way to work stops at the corner store and ends up getting stuck behind a compulsive gambler who should be feeding their addiction in a casino rather than holding up customers who are in a rush. As the lotto-head fusses about validating tickets, trying to pick winning numbers / scratch tickets etc. the customer behind them becomes late for work.
Cashier -“Sorry sir, I don’t smoke, I don’t really know but a lot of customers get these new Studio smokes”
Customer behind gambler clenches teeth and thinks to himself “F***, now I’m late for work, these lotto-heads without jobs… I feel like saying something”
