We seem to have forgotten how to behave as a society. No one has any manners whatsoever. None! I don't think that is evident in any place more than it is at the grocery store. Walmart for example is a bevy of misbehavior. Not by children, but by adults. It is as if everyone is in their own little world, and no one else is there with them. The parked buggies in the middle of the aisle while the shopper stands ever so close to the shelf is just the beginning. People flying at break neck speeds from a center aisle out into the hall area without even looking is another issue. The worst part though is the actual check out line. I can deal with trying to find the shortest line, and then waiting 30 minutes if I have to. I can not deal with people who edge their way to your elbow while you are trying to pay for your purchases.
Yesterday I was trying to pay for my groceries when a young woman approached me to the left. I was paying with three payment methods, because I just needed to clear my Walmart savings card, pay some with cash, and then put the rest on my debit card. The lady was talking on her cell phone about a client, and I am assuming it was a home health call. She was loud, and she was way too damn close to me. I HATE THAT! I so wanted to turn to her and shout BACK UP!!!!!!! It took all I had in me to not do so. Where is my personal space? Where is hers? I mean seriously. Do not approach people while they are paying at the cash register. Have some manners, and wait quietly a good distance away. She had one item, and I assume she was in a hurry. That didn't mean I could make my transaction faster. There are self check out registers for a reason. Use them. I had $170.00 worth of groceries to load into my buggy, and I had to pay for them. The cashier couldn't do it any faster than she was doing it. Very annoying!
Then there are the people who unload their groceries, and then leave their cart floating in the parking lot. I for one do not want a cart rammed into my JEEP. Have some common courtesy and put your cart in the stall with the rest of the carts. It takes a few seconds, and I understand you are a busy person, but still. I suppose these are the same people who empty their trash into the carts, such as their take out bags from Wendys, and their cups.
I could go on forever, but I think you get the picture.
Unless someone invites you into their personal space, back up. Be considerate of others, as you are not alone in shopping experience. Put your buggy away. Geesh!
Rant over. Have a blessed Monday! <3
peace :D shemelts
