Topic: Rank in the Commissary Checkout Line

AS THE WIFE of a lance corporal in the Marines, I have found the base commissary to have very long lines. After an interminable wait, a friend of mine had almost made it to the checkout counter. From nowhere, a woman with a cartload of groceries pushed her way forward exclaiming, "I have to go next! I'm invited to a party at the general's house tonight." Annoyance showed on many faces, until someone farther down the line spoke up. "You can go to the end of the line," she said. "I'm the one giving the party."
