Be Ready to Pay
I know I should bring a water bottle to the airport, but unfortunately I don’t always remember to bring one with me. And so pretty much every time I fly, I make a mad dash to the newsstand store to buy a bottle of water. It seems that almost everyone in the store is in a hurry—except for two people: the cashier and the person in front of me, who always seems to be looking for their wallet/cash/credit card to pay.
This is a huge pet peeve of mine. Even though it takes only about 30 seconds to wait for the person in front of me, it feels like an eternity when I’m in a hurry. Don’t you think customers should start looking for their wallets while they’re standing in line rather than waiting until the cashier asks them for their money?
