I just wanted garbage bags.
What I got, while I was in long checkout line:
Man in front of me: "I can't let you go in front of me."
Me: " that's ok. I am in no hurry."
Stressed man: "I know I have a cart full and you have one item, but I was here first."
Me: "I don't want in front of you. I am not in a hurry. I am good!"
Man unraveling: "where is the rule that I need to let you go first?"
Me bursting into laughter:
"Oh my word! Do you have family visiting? Chill! Nobody asked to get in front of you!"
Desperate man: "9......9 extra women in my house until Saturday."
Me: "well, I'm not one of the women torturing you, so enjoy your peace in this long line."
He took out a handkerchief, removed his glasses and wiped his face.
Ladies, give the men a gift of silence, peace and calm. Make your home a place of rest.
Guys, enjoy the long lines. An escape from family!
And everyone, let Jeff know how lucky he is to have snagged a peaceful, happy woman!
