Less Cringing, Fewer Dunderheads

So this morning I'm in the grocery store ready to check out, and something odd catches my eye. It's a sign that reads "Express Lane - 15 Items or Fewer."

Yes, Fewer! Not "15 Items or Less."

It appears that someone in the grocery industry finally took a damn grammar class.

I applaud the grammar upgrade, but you just know that whether it says 6, 10 or 15 items, some nitwit with an overflowing cart who who can't decide which pack of gum to choose and stares at the debit card scanner like it's from outer space is still gonna be in line in front of you.

LOL! You are so right. I guess most of the dunderheads are actually in the express lane in front of me with three weeks worth of groceries hoping to sneak them in.
