Last night, while working the 'dinner' shift at the seafood shop, I started to serve a customer who simply wanted to purchase two tiny tomato sauce packets. The transaction would only take about 1 minute, if that.
**Note: This man did NOT push in front of her, I simply chose what I thought was the quickest person to serve in a shop full of people and both arrived at the counter at the same time.
Sooo...I start to serve him and then the woman next to him says (to the male customer, not me)...
*All this took place about a foot in front of me, directly on the other side of the counter*
SC: *sigh* That's the SECOND time you've pushed in front of me!
(if it was
, the first time he pushed in front of her wasn't in our shop
Man: Oh, I'm sorry. You go ahead.
SC: It's bloody rude, ya know! I mean come on! (she then makes her order which was ONE item that took about the same time to order as his purchase ended up taking me....less than a minute
SC: (again to the man) It REALLY IS BLOODY RUDE! You don't push in front of people!!!
Man: I'm sorry. Really.
SC: It's BLOODY RUDE! IT IS! Geezuz!! You know it's pr*cks like you that make my life hell! (she then continues on for a couple of minutes, throwing in the F-word several times before leaving everyone in the shop completely stunned).
Some people shouldn't leave the house. Why they insist on starting an argument in a shop over something so trivial is beyond my comprehension. I mean, this woman still had to wait 15mins to get her meal. Would another 30 - 50 seconds have mattered??
