Waiting for a blood test after you have fasted 14 hours is hard enough but to watch stupidity in motion at 7:30 am is enough to make your soon to be donated blood boil.
The sign said clearly upon entering:
“Please form line behind sign and await your turn.”
I don’t know about you, but I think that is pretty black and white. But as I watched each client enter; they ignored the directions on the sign.

“Guess someone is cranky this morning.”
Due to all the advertising that we’re exposed to, do our minds automatically tune all important messages out? Does it most importantly apply to signs because we’re so used to seeing them we think, “oh I don’t need to read that I already know what it’s going to tell me”. It’s a shame, as we all seem to be illiterate. Or perhaps, it’s that people can really read, but they just don’t care.
