10 Items or less

Man Fined After Express Lane Harassment

SAUKVILLE, Wis. - It sure can be aggravating when someone in the express check out line has more than 10 items.

But calling a woman fat and ugly is taking things too far.

Police report a man who berated a woman in a Washington state grocery store is now charged with disorderly conduct.

The Port Washington woman said she asked the express lane clerk if she could check out.

There was no one else in line.

But while the cashier was ringing up her items, a male customer started making ugly comments.

The woman called 911.

The responding officer gave the angry male customer a $429 ticket.

The woman tells a local TV station (WISN) the man deserves it.

The only reason I am posting this is because if the location was anywhere in the New England area I would bet all the money in my pocket that it was Chrissy(half in the wrapper buying a frozen burrito and a gallon of water at Stop and Shop). I could also see Iggles muttering under his breath at this woman. He wouldn't call her names but he would be over heard.
I know its a very black and white issue - 10 items or less means 10 items or less but if there is no one in line, whats the big issue?
