    That all pretty much goes for here too

    I've actually thought about the supermarket one. Sure enough, the pharmacies are ALWAYS in the back of supermarkets or drug stores. But the cigarettes are always up front by the doors.

    I just noticed that a few months ago because I saw some poor lady shuffling in looking like death warmed over and she had to go all the way to the rear of the store. She was using a walker and I bet it took her 10 minutes to get there.

    Meanwhile the chick in front of me is asking the bagboy to get her a carton of Marlboro 100's out of the cigarette case 6 feet away, and right next to the front door.

    Don't flatter yourself, Ireland, the United States would like some credit where credit is due as well ;-)

    i've heard that exact joke, except with America instead of Erin. i spose it applies to much of the west (and not "only in..").

    but the last bit reminds me of a joke

    "You're not drunk if you can lie on the floor without holding on."
