Place: Monday afternoon, the grocery store...
I went into the grocery store to get a few items for potato soup (yes, even when the temp was 77 degrees outside). I went to the U-Scan to check out. I am talking on my cell phone, but then again, who isn't these days?
I HATE going to the grocery store, and HH does most of our grocery store shopping. I am VERY fast at grocery shopping (when I was a nanny I could whirl through the store and have $200 worth of groceries at the register in fifteen minutes). I am not too shabby at the U-Scan. The woman behind me proceeds to loudly curse me out, telling me to get off my "f-in" phone" and check out, and how "f-in" rude I am, etc. She finally goes to the station in front of me, still ranting. At this point, even the security guard has noticed, and is watching to see if the situation gets elevated.
As I was walking by her, and she was still checking out, I said, "Well it appears I was still able to finish checking out before you." To which she let out some more vulgar names for me.
I'd hate to come home to HER! Her poor kids....her poor husband.
