AND banning those motherfucking giant race-car shopping carts from the grocery stores! Kids whine for them, so moms get them to stop their shitty kid from whining...if they're gone, kids can't whine for something they don't see. Damn things take up 2/3 of an aisle and you can't get by, and the moms drive them like it's a limousine they don't know the length of, right into your Achilles Tendon.
I take the hangars off while waiting in line; top buttons already undone before I get to the cashier. I help them un-hangar anything I did get to, put the hangars on the empty rack, return the cart etc - in return I have had things brought to me before being put out for general sale. It's nice to have something to do while in line and sometimes unexpectedly pays off later. I just do it to keep busy and not be useless.
