You're in a long line at the checkout. A different Lane opens. Person in back usually gets there first, but that's kind of BS since they have been waiting the shortest time. Do you let someone in front of you go to the new Lane if they easily can?

Question of the day 2 so I don't forget. Completely hypothetical, definitely didn't happen this week
You set a jug of laundry detergent on the dryer, but while running, it falls to the floor and spills everywhere. Do you:
1) Clean it all up
2) Walk away
3) Leave it on the floor and clean it up, one dirty towel at a time, and use it to wash your clothes for a week.

I feel like I normally would let the person in front of me go unless they are about to be helped in the current line.

My immediate reaction would be to just clean it up but your 3rd option is intriguing.

Well I'm glad that you think so, because that's definitely what we did.

High beams. Ever use them? Ever forget to turn them off? Ever drive a red Ford Taurus behind me for 15 minutes on the way to work this morning with them on?

I almost never ever use high beams because I don't want to be that guy.

I don't even then. I should use them on Scott Ridge between Carlisle and Indianola because that is where I hit a deer and almost hit another one the other day, but I still don't think to turn them on. I should get better about that.

I usually use them on a ten mile stretch just north of my house that is pretty windy and woodsy. Lots of deer in that area.

Sprite. 7up. Sierra Mist

I grew up in a 7up family but have slowly switched to Sprite. I don't buy any soda for myself for the house, but try to keep a 12 pack of Sprite on hand as a caffeine free treat. Sprite is also easier for kids to say so I assume that's why all parents pick it over the other 2.

None. 7up reminds me of being sick as a kid so I never have that. I'd always choose a mountain dew or any cola over those as well

Yeah, we usually only drank 7up when we were sick and it definitely reminds me of that. I think I have a few cans of Sprite at home, but really the only reason I have any pop at home is to offer drink options to other people when we host parties. Except for root beer, I do have a root beer every once in a while.

I don't drink any of them. I remember having 7Up when I sick as child also. I wonder how that became the soda to give sick kids. Is that just an Midwest thing?

I too had 7up when sick, but it wasn't the ONLY time I would drink it. They say now adays that dwrk soda is better for your stomach when you're sick, not 7up

I wonder why that would be.

I assume 7up and Sprite were used since they're non-caffeinated, so you don't get a bunch of hyper, sick kids running around.
