They call them convenient stores for a reason: you're supposed to get in, get out and get on with your day...or whatever that tagline was. I just wanted a bag of peanuts and something to drink, and you...YOU had to do all of your bill paying and gambling. Money order this, and lottery ticket that, you held up the line for 10 fucking minutes! Really? Is this what our society has come to? "Cash my check next door and head on over to the store", is this what you're humming throughout your little day? And have you ever heard of buying name brand cigarettes? With the wad of cash and lottery tickets in your hand, you think you'd have an extra buck to NOT have the tobacco plant floor sweepings and spring for the higher quality pack of cigarettes. What a life you must lead, if this is your normal routine. Do you even vote? Goddamn, I just wanted a bag of peanuts and something to drink, you cheap inconsiderate simpleton.
