    That would be because in a typical department store (if I'm not mistaken) the GIRLS or WOMENS section is on the right...so why turn left (BOYS and MENS) or go straight (CASHIER)? That's my guess..another plausible option would be that the shopping carts are on the right...and you don't just walk into a store without grabbing a shopping cart. :lol:

    I got a longer version of that one hanging in my home-office, just to remind me what might be normal.

    The missing parts read:
    52 would be women
    30 would be white
    30 would be christians
    11 persons would be homosexuals
    80 persons live in inferior houses
    1 is close to being born
    1 is close to dying
    1 person owns a computer


    I use those statistics (although they may be a bit out of date) when ever a person owning a computor uses the argument that homosexuality is not normal.
