Dear Mr. Jerk,
Whilst walking to the pharmacy tonight to pick up my prescriptions, I noticed you running ahead of me to get ahead of me in line.
What you didn't know was that you entered into the wrong door, thus winding up five people behind me despite your jogging prowess.
And what I will never know is how you managed to get the pharmacy dude to serve you from the back of the line. I didn't see it until it was too late and you were somehow miraculously paying for your stuff while all the other people, including me, were still waiting.
But, I did recognize the tiny smile on your face, for it matched the one I had been sporting only minutes before as I gloated over my apparently premature victory.
So, maybe tonight you beat the system. Maybe tonight you got lucky.
But I happen to think you used up your luck, and you will one day wish to God you hadn't used it up just to wait five minutes less in line.
So enjoy the feeling, while you can.
