How many minutes to buy a pen?

No this is not a trick question nor a riddle...seriously it took me 20 minutes this morning to buy a blue pen that cost the equivalent of 15 cents...it wasn`t even that crowded...the whole concept of a line and waiting your turn does not factor into any activity down here...that goes for bathrooms, restaurants, buses, and yes, buying pens. Of course there`s the whole personal space thing as well, but that can wait til later. The next time you buy pretty much anything in a relatively timely manner, savor the experience and realize that it sure is a treat.
