So I just spent 15 minutes trying to outsmart the long lines at the registers at the Walgreen store at 55th & Lake Park Ave. in Chicago.
It didn't work. I just walked out and left my stuff. This isn't the first time that it's happened at this store. They don't have a designated spot to wait for the next available cashier so people often jump out of the crowd when a register becomes open.
Even when the cashiers call for the next customer, things happen. I don't go shopping to get into a fight. Ironically, the pharmacy window at this same store actually uses a sign to tell customers where to wait in line.
I get around in the city and I know that this hasn't happened in my experience at the stores at Diversey & Laramie, Diversey & California, Clark & Ontario, or 47th & Lake Park. It's just a shame that it happens at a 24 hour store less than 2 blocks from my house.
