I am not sure what has happened to me all of a sudden I am more outspoken and more sarcastic but wow do I love it! I never used to be so outspoken when times came that something I wanted to say would possibly cause a confrontation, it’s not that I am a coward, it’s that I simply try to avoid confrontation every time I can.
Take a trip to Walmart, it always drives me crazy all too often I see a freaking adult cutting me off or my kids off. It pisses me off more when they cut my kid off, hello people children deserve a bit of manners too! So me, being the more outspoken person I am, often says “excuse you … it’s pretty bad when my children have better manners than you do”. I get a look or a nose in the air or just someone who plain ignores what I said. I mean even my kids know to say excuse me if we have to pass in front of someone looking at something in the aisle, I like to think I am raising them right and by teaching manners well that’s a good start!
Next take the freaking cashier at a grocery store who hits the stop button on that rolling belt you put groceries on. I get it, they don’t want to squish the customers food that’s right there, well dude cashier when the freaking persons groceries have all been bagged and there is another customer behind them in line trying to fill that belt thing can’t you hit the on button?! With this example, I actually said out loud in a mildly low voice “how freaking hard is it to hit the on button so I can get my groceries up”. Of course the old due cashier didn’t hear me or chose to ignore me. I was about ready to lean over and hit that darn button on my own!
Of course these types of situations are not worth me getting all angry over and being a total jerk but sometimes you just plain have to say something and that is where I come in. I am usually good at saying stuff that needs to be said in a way that doesn’t offend the other person, or should offend them, but gets the point across that they have their head up their butt and are being oblivious to the fact that there are other people around who are shopping or trying to check out.
What type of things happen when you are out grocery shopping that make you go bonkers?
