Waste My Time, Please

Shoppers Drug Mart Canada Post counter. Line-up six deep. Our man joins the end of the line, which slowly counts down:

CP LINE-UP: 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. . .

CP GAL: I can help the next customer here!

BUDGING GUY: Excuse me! I just need a stamp!

CJB: The thing is, I've been waiting fifteen minutes already. In this line-up.

BG: Yeah but guy! I've gotta get to work!

CJB: Wait a bit. It won't kill you.

BG: Asshole!

[CP transaction]

CPL: ...your change. And your receipt. Have a nice day!

CJB: Thanks!

BG: Wait for me in the parking lot, asshole. I'm gonna kick your ass!

CJB: No you're not. You do, you're gonna be even later for work.
