Short one this time.

Me: *waiting in line with Dad at cashier's*

C for Cashier: Ma'am, these bell peppers aren't the same price. I'll have to weigh and charge them separately.

Me: [Oooh, pretty! Red and green and orange and yellow - just chop them up into long slices and arrange them for an appetizer platter with a dip in the middle.]

Woman Ahead - we'll call her B.

B: What? I'll just keep two then, which ones are the cheap ones? Green and Red you say? Take the other two out. And I need another shopping bag. *bill having been run and given to her*

C: Okay, ma'am - five cents more for another bag.

B: Put my toilet paper in that bag! Why're you so slow?

C: *trying to fit near exact dimension rolls inside bag* I shouldn't go faster, really, ma'am, the bag'll tear - it's barely fitting.

B: Well, it's easier to hold with the handles! You'd think they'd design packaging with handles! *proceeds to bag her lot of stuff slowly, which are blocking my groceries - the ones that have been rung up*

I think nothing of it as I finally get to start loading my stuff in the cart as Dad pays.

B: *suddenly squeezes back and hollers at the cashier* HEY YOU, DID YOU GIVE ME MY RECIEPT?

C: *rattled* I think so. It's not here ... *looking over machine*

Me: I thought I saw you put it in one of your bags, did you check there?

B: *marches off* THANK YOU very much, why don't you just LEARN to mind your own business!

Me: [Whoa, someone's got ANGER management issues.]

Dad: Why don't you just shut up! *after retreating back*

Me: *mental headsmack, starts patting Dad's back to try to calm him down*

B: *rushes back again* DID you just tell me to SHUT UP, DID YOU? *to poor hapless innocent cashier*

Dad: *really mad now* NO, I DID! SHUT UP!

C: Let's all calm down here in favour of world peace .... ^^;;;;;;;;;;

Me: [Dad, it's sweet of you to stand up for me, but really .... we don't have time for this ...] *patpatpatpat* It's okay, Dad - I'm alright....

B: *stalks off muttering*

Dad: I'll take on anyone that messes with my daughter!

But sometimes dad also embarrasses the hell out of me. ^^;;;

lol at the cashier. Was that a guy? That poor man.

Yay dad \o/

Stupid crazy woman. What a sorry rude excuse for a human being. I'm sure she's a real winner in life.

Poor sweet lady. I think she was our age, or younger. ^^;;;

OK, i was wondering, since the crazy woman mistook dad for the cashier. lmao

D'awww. That's so sweet. ♥

Also, my sympathies to that poor cashier. Speaking of cashiers, my mom and I went shopping today and mom was taking frozen vegetable packs from further down in the freezer, since the freezers are all open and so the top ones aren't properly cooled.

Employee: Oh yeah, because the ones at the bottom are better.
Mom: Yes indeed. Happy food poisoning to you, too. :D

Yeah. I felt really sorry for her ...

And depends on the frozen stuff, too. I tend to just grab the one at the top as long it's not broken or ripped up or expired or what not, because I go for sale items and I KNOW people have rummaged those before me. XDDDD

Go Daddy!
...besides, that woman became your business when she started to make your brain hurt.

... It's yet proof to me that humanity in general is NOT ready for democracy.

And if only there were exams for the right to breed ... >.>;;;
