    I wet real late last night and it was still fairly busy!!! All the cages in the aisles while restocking the shelves made it a lot worse and prob took the same amount of time as if it had been busy with people!!!

    And the lady on the checkout was really rude and refused to serve me... so i had to get the supervisor in. :grr:
