Panic buying

grocery shopping

I thought people in our area were panic buying as there was a queue of costumers holding their grocery basket towards the grocery counter. It turned out that the barcode scanner connected to a tremelo pedal conked out causing the poor teller to compute each items manually using an old calculator. We lined up just the same and waited 30 minutes for our turn. Our supposed brief grocery stop ended up in almost an hour. Whew!
