Retail Courtesy (A Two-Way Street Saga in One Act)
posted Jan 14 2014 6:17PM
So I'm on line at the checkout in a discount store. There's a woman behind me in line and she keeps making huffy puffy noises and giving me reproachful looks. I don't know why; I've never seen her before in my life. Finally she mutters to the man behind her, "What's he doing? Stocking his whole house?"
So my big crime was that I was buying too much? Er, excuse please? You're in that much of a hurry that you're mad at me for buying too much? And let's be honest here. I didn't have three cartfuls. I had the basics, stuff you go to the discount store for: TP, PT, glass cleaner, laundry detergent, dish soap, sponges, pitstop. Nothing extravagant. So I rang out, collected my bags and left. On my way out the door I looked back and she was shaking her head at me.
I will never understand this. Rant over. Thanks for reading. Cheers.
