Beat the Line Game

I got my booty spanked today in the game of "Switch checkout lines". I thought for sure the line with one person in it would be faster than the line with six.

It was not to be.

I watched a poor little guy run four credit cards and three zip codes through the credit card machine before he apologized in broken English and walked away.

I felt sorry for him but at the same time he was trying to buy a $227 digital camera and printer. I should have told him that the photo printer was not the way to go. At $0.17 to $0.24 cents each it is cheaper to have the pics printed than to buy printer supplies. You also get better quality having them done. I just don't see an advantage in having a photo printer.

Anyway, back to my spanking, I watched the six people in the other line walk out the door. Then about two others after that. By then I was just smiling on the inside. I knew I was beaten by Murph's law (thats no typo, Murphy and I are on nickname basis) of "You Will End Up in the Slowest Lines Possible When You Are In the Biggest Hurry."

Ah, yes, glad to address this and hoping you can help me with it too.


Alberen

First two letters of my first name, first three letters of my middle name, and first two letters of my last name.

Now, does this word translate into something in German or some other language? I looked around for a bit but didn't find anything (my desired outcome.)

Have a great Danish day!
