An old lady waiting her turn in the deli section of a local supermarket has inadvertently blocked the access of fellow customers to the ticket machine. Subsequent discussions taking place on online forums suggest that this kind of behaviour is quite common for women aged between 55 and 85 years.  

When challenged about her choice of waiting position at the deli, Betty Norman seemed blissfully unaware of how her actions were effecting others. “Oh sorry love, I was just in a bit of a daze.”

While this explanation seemed reasonable, seasoned deli worker Karen Clarke later broke ranks to tell one of the effected customers that Norman was a regular “ticket blocker” and had received numerous warnings from the supermarket’s management team. 

Norman was unavailable for comment when contacted by The Watsonia Bugle
