Remembered this while at wally mart today; I suppose it's a sighting, not too sure and it's from a couple years back.
But let's start with today where it was just a slight annoyance probably amplified in my mind from the fact that I'm just super cranky today (tired).
I'm at checkout and I just didn't like how the cashier was bagging. 'Tis all. Just my own cranky attitude popping up. Didn't react negatively outside of my mind though. Until I got into the car and just pointed out all the things I felt she did wrong to my friend.
1) The cashier didn't double bag the gallon of milk but when I went to double bag it myself, my friend already grabbed it and put it into the cart - seriously, Juju, you need to... ugh... nevermind.
2) The cashier did double bag the cartons of milk and juice and I'm going... why didn't you do that for the heavier one that'll more likely rip than--whatever...
3) Asked if I wanted to have the 6-pack of the soda I got to be bagged... um, yes? Otherwise I'm going to have a lot of problems carrying everything and-- "Oh! No, thank you ^^" is what came out instead because it was easier to say that in a light tone than risking sounding like an entitled b* when saying, "Yes, please" since being in the cranky mood, it would've been something like "UHH, duh? Of course I do."
...I don't know why this bothers me so much the most...
4) When she was done bagging at the end, and my friend Juju and I already grabbed all the groceries except the last ones she bagged.... she just stood there staring at me to pay and I did, but she just stood there and not turn the bagging spinner thing towards my friend and I so we could grab the last bags.
I had to step forward, and pull the bagging station towards me in order to get the last bags and while I was putting the bags into the cart, I saw her literally shove the receipt at my friend to hurry up and take it.
Okay, lady, I'm sure you've had a rough shift but seriously this is just... no. Ugh. Am I just being cranky over this? Are these just mild annoyances that have been amplified and I'm just being super overly picky????
Anyways, onwards to what I remembered from a few years ago. It was the week before school started in... I think it was junior year of High School. I was doing a emergency run for two notebooks that were on sale for like 50cents each. I get in line and notice that EVERYONE has at least one whole cartfull of groceries... at 1am at night... everyone
I patiently wait in line while my aunt gets pissy in the car but it's not really something I can control...
After waiting behind two cartfulls of people, it's finally getting to my turn in line and now I'm just waiting for the person in front of me to pay and roll away.
Behind me is a young couple, probably in their early twenties with about two overflowing cartfulls of groceries (may have been three, but I do most definitely remember at least two) and they call for my attention.
I turn around and look at them
One of them, I think the guy asks, "Hey, can we go ahead of you? We have beer and it's about to turn 2am."
I have only TWO 50cents notebooks... TWO IN YOUR FACE. And it's your own goddamn fault for coming to the supermarket so late and to get all that. And we have what, thirty minutes? twenty? I'm sure that even if you did go first, you wouldn't be able to buy your alcohol IN TIME and I'd have to wait even longer while my aunt gets pissier and I get the brunt of her wrath and--besides that, I ONLY HAVE TWO THINGS. TWO. AND IT'S YOUR OWN FAULT THAT YOU CAME LATE AND GOT SO MUCH STUFF AND NO, YOU DO NOT NEED THE ALCOHOL AND JEEZ, I'M SO SORRY THAT EVERYONE ELSE CAME TO GET A LOT OF STUFF AND--
"Um, no, I only have two things?" I turned around, gave the cashier my notebooks, and left within two minutes.
How could you even have the audacity to ask.
Go away and disappear. Your level of intelligence and lack of manners is not needed.
