So I was at the grocery store looking down my nose at all those idiots with their rolling cages full of food, stuck in a long line for the checkout. I looked down at the basket I was carrying and decided that there was plenty of room in the aisle for me to get past those slugs. So I smugly walked past everybody and took my rightful place at the head of the line. One lady behind me expressed some shock, but I calmly explained to her about traffic congestion and efficient use of space. She didn't seem convinced, but by then my groceries were getting rung up and I moved on with my life.

Some people just don't understand efficiency.
