I have long noticed that whenever I go to Walgreens for a prescription, I am always told it will be 20 minutes, even though there is no one waiting and the pharmacists are lethargically walking around behind the counter. I am convinced that they do this as a matter of company policy because they want you to wander around the store for a few minutes and see something that you "need" to buy.

Most customers are understanding when they see that the employee is moving around deliberately attending to business.

Anyway, this is quite a theme drift from the cost of paint!
