She must have some unruly chimps in her house


That's right, the lady in line was buying at least six bunches of bananas, and at least four spray nozzles. And a jar of bread 'n' butter pickles thrown in for good measure. Who knows what kind of shenanigans are going on in her house.

Incidentally, it took forever for her to get through the line, because after everything was scanned and bagged, BananaNozzleLady took the time to write out a check. After handing it to the cashier, who I think may be the slowest in the world, the cashier stood there with said check and. Stared. At. It. For. A. Solid. Minute. I'm not kidding. Then she finally woke up and ran the check through the little scanning machine, back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, until some sort of receipt printed out. SlowCashier gave BananaNozzleLady the receipt, apparently so she could sign it (?), then when she signed it, she gave it back, and SlowCashier handed the check back to her! What kind of odd payment process is this???

I'm sure there's a perfectly legitimate reason for someone paying for a mount of 'nanners, nozzles, and briny cukes.

Can't think of one, but I'm sure there has to be.

Please let there be one ...

Jim - I was able to observe this because I was two people behind her in line, waiting to purchase hot chocolate and marshmallows for the youth group...I was standing farther back than the picture indicates...the photo is cropped from a larger image, as I didn't want to include any identifiable faces... :)
