Sprite!! All i wanted was a Sprite!!

Sprite!
You know those check out counters in supermarkets that has the 'Express Lane' tagged above em like a halo on an angel? It sends out pulsatin signals to shoppers with 6 items or less to pay for...attractin them like pigs to truffles...yeah...that's right...attractin them...

I was in a supermarket at Thomson Plaza earlier in the day with only one thing in mind...1 fuckin ice cold Sprite...the weather was so bloody hot the shower i took just 15 minutes before after a mornin football game seemed like 15 hours ago...an ice cold Sprite...ahhhhhhhhhh...now everyone knows how it feels when it goes down ya throat...refreshin isnt it?

So i headed to the check out counters...it's a weekend family crowd....throngs of kids runnin around to the chagrin of most shoppers...couples shoppin for the perfect ingredient for that romantic dinner tonight...teens baskin in Summer Holidays idleness and just annoyin me to no end with their bad English...then it hit me...10 counters...each fully occupied with an increasingly impatient crowd with a HUGE trolley of groceries...waitin for their turn...no fuckin way was i gona wait through all that...

I headed to the 'Express Lane' and oh wow! these counters are manned by 2 disinterested ladies with 'excellent' customer service...and an entire train of shoppers....with considerably less groceries...but considerably more madness...

I mean...these supermarket managament peeps obviously arent doin their fuckin jobs...it says 'Express Lane'...so it had better be fuckin express...i came...i saw...i liked...i wana pay...i see express...everyone likes express...so i queue...

But no...i wait 10 minutes at 1 of the 'Express Lane' counters...only to realise the cute lady over at the Non-'Express Lane' with a huge shoppin list waitin for her turn behind an elderly couple with an even bigger list...had already paid and was leavin...

OMG...WTF is this...'Express Lane'...and i had to stand there...dealin with half-witted imbeciles fumblin with their loose change...searchin for their shoppin coupons...not havin enough credit in their cards...CANT THEY JUST DO THAT B4 THEY QUEUE???

I stepped out of Thomson Plaza...with a can of Sprite that was longer iced cold...a seethin discontent with Singapore's service...and a bloody headache from that old fogger with bad body odor standin behind me...
