I just got home from working out and needed to go to the grocery store. I had to get quite a few items and knew I just had to be patient and understand that it was going to take awhile. What I didn't anticipate was that it was going to take as long as it did. I got behind a lady who had quite a few things going on. Here is the breakdown:
She had bread, milk, and cheese that she used food stamps for, so that was one purchase. Next she had cigarettes, beer, chips, cookies, etc. that she paid for with a $100 dollar bill. I am thinking that she must be done, but then her mother has her bread and milk and used food stamps. Okay, they must be done, right? Nope, Mom has to get ciggie butts too. Then there was an incorrect charge on the wine she was getting. It was on sale. Clerk had to send bagger to go check, and she looked about 16, so that was interesting. And it went on.
Ten minutes later I get up to the front of the line and the clerk is crabby. She doesn't even look at me and scowls when I try and be polite. Then she is upset because I don't know the price of something. I can't win! I was pretty sure it was $1.99, but she calls a bagger and she runs and looks. Being honest is a dead art, as it ended up being $2.49.
At any rate, I made it home with groceries so I am relieved.
Other confusion today: I go to Taco Bell to get the #7 combo like normal. Because I have cash and just need my usual, I get in the drive thru. The lady in front of me has a list and orders at least ten combos. It takes fifteen minutes for her to get it ordered and get her food. My question here is why wouldn't she go in to take care of a large order? I certainly would. Maybe I just don't get it. Explain to me proper drive thru etiquette please.
The kicker is that I got my order and it was wrong. I ate it anyway because I was hungry, but you know what I mean. Eaglewing, you posted about that on your site and made very good points.
The good news is that my comic books came in correctly today. I got World War Hulk #4 and everything was normal. I feel for Lisa, who didn't get all her stuff. What a horror for a great retailer like Lisa and her husband. I am praying the rest comes in tomorrow, Lisa.
Here is crossing my fingers for a better rest of the week, and hoping for good karma. Have a great night!
