At first I thought this blog was only going to be about dumb assholes on the road, and I thought I can’t blog about all the dumb assholes on the road, people will get bored with that.
So I didn’t write anything.
Then I thought, shit I got this blog and now I have nothing to post about.
Well problem solved.
Monday I went to the grocery store to pick up a few items. I use the kiosk at the deli department because it is so much easier to pre-order my items and let them get it ready for me while I shop.
I was petering along lamenting about how stupid people are in the grocery store. You know they park their carriage on the side and then stand next to it, effectively blocking the entire aisle, while they search for that elusive jar of pickles that they just HAVE to have.
Without fail every time I visit the grocery store, there is one stupid person who I seem to encounter in every aisle.
So I was wandering through the aisles looking for my groceries, muttering under my breath, when I heard my deli order was ready.
I made my way to the deli counter and as I approached I noticed an old lady (yes I can say that because it is my inner bitch and she says what she wants) approaching from the opposite direction. I didn’t give her a second thought because I made it to the deli well before her tired old ass did.
I reached up and verified that it was indeed MY deli order and then place the paper ticket in the container on the counter. I turned back to my carriage and lo and behold this tiny old hag had pushed her carriage right up to mine, like the carriages were kissing. She stood there glaring at me, waiting for ME to move MY carriage.
I was stunned and it probably showed on my face because I have yet to master that don’t give your thoughts away look. Well I moved by carriage and I think I said, “Really, how lazy.” And went on to finish my shopping.
Let me say I normally am very respectful of older people, I realize as we get older we slow down some and God knows some day I too will be old, but really!
Maybe I’m being too harsh on her, maybe her eye sight is going and she couldn’t tell she was in the GROCERY store pushing a GROCERY CARRIAGE and that she wasn’t the ONLY ONE in the store.
I don’t know, I do know MIB called her any number of derogatory names. And I didn’t feel bad about it either!
