    I found in interesting, though like the new Star Trek movie I got lost about halfway through. Seriously, other than the bromide one should have patience at Wal-Mart checkout lanes, I didn’t understand what the guy was saying.

      It’s not so much to have patience while in the line at Walmart, but rather take the time while in line at Walmart to be, rather than to merely be waiting.
