Today started out as any other ordinary day. Took Little Prince to school and Princess K and I headed to Super Wal-Mart for some grocery shopping. Yee Haw! My least favorite place on Earth - Super Wal-Mart. But I digress.
So I shop for about an hour or so and go to the checkout lanes. It's almost noon and the store isn't all that busy, but the lane I'm in has a whopping three customers in line. One lady who is almost finished, another lady who is starting to put her things on the conveyor belt and then me.
I was standing there for about three minutes probably, when a manager comes over and asks me to go to Aisle 5 - new cashier coming on! I look to the woman in front of me - she's not paying a lick of attention and is busy talking to her friend. So, I go ahead and go to Aisle 5 and begin unloading my heaping, overflowing shopping cart. Just as I lift the Clorox wipes onto the belt, this woman comes up from behind and proceeds to yell at me: "I hope YOU have a nice day, don't YOU worry about us, WE weren't in line apparently".
Did I mention that she was SCREAMING???
So, I then apologize and offer to let her go ahead, that I didn't realize, blah blah, blah. She continues to repeat very loudly "No, YOU have a nice day" in a very nasty tone. She walks away from me and goes back to her aisle, but is complaining about me under her breath the whole time. This is when I lose it! I literally began to yell back - first saying that I already apologized, please go in front of me, and then she wouldn't even look in my direction but kept talking to her friend, which irritated me even more. So, I say "Lady, if you've got something to say, say it to my face, don't stand there and talk about me under your breath, you big dummy!"
YES, I called her a "big dummy". Apparently, I'm in second grade AND a dork!! Too funny. Sad, but still funny. I just couldn't understand why someone would want to take their items OFF of the conveyor belt to go to another aisle at all. Still don't, actually. I mean, really, you're already there, by the time you get all your stuff back in the cart and hauled over to the new cashier, you would've been done!!
Unfortunately, for me, I think she just wanted to prove to her friend what a big shot she was. I should've just let her do it and kept my mouth shut. I should've just kept it at the apology. She chose to continue with the negativity, but so did I. I showed just how rude I was when I called her a big dummy.
Doc, I need to up my meds NOW!
