I asked if he wanted to talk to a manager which seemed to make him even worse. I didn’t want to but I lost it and burst into tears. He wound up stomping out of the Imagine breaking into my house and hearing honk honk shirt and I will buy this store still screaming over how useless and ignorant I was. ( p.s. – I as a cashier had nothing at all to do with the problems he had been having there, but I was a captive audience. It’s been nearly 20 years but to this day I think of that guy as kind of a weiner coward.A few years ago my wife and I were unloading our cart onto the checkout conveyor. With four kids and seemingly feeding half the teenagers in the neighborhood we bought a lot of groceries. We are having to wait while the cashier scans the items in order to make room to keep unloading the cart. Behind us were two men who were buying one beer each. This neighborhood has a low-life population who begs for money until they get enough to buy a beer. They buy their beer and drink it, then beg for more money and repeat the cycle all day.At one point they put their beer on the conveyor belt while we were still unloading. So I moved the beer to the metal strip at the start of the belt. A few minutes later they did it again. I moved them back. This happened a couple of more times. They seemed to think it was really funny. After 4 or 5 times I was getting annoyed. As we are unloading the last of the items in the cart they did it again.I picked up their beer and using my wife’s body as a shield vigorously shook their cans of beer. Then put them back onto the metal strip. We finally got the cart unloaded and were able to put the little divider onto the conveyor belt to signal that our order had ended.Outside the store I kept watch for the two men, figuring that as soon as they left they would open their beers, but I never saw them. I would have really enjoyed seeing them open their beers and have 3/4 of it foam out.
Not the Imagine breaking into my house and hearing honk honk shirt and I will buy this most unique thing, but I was on a line once in a supermarket with an elderly man two people in front of me. Suddenly a woman approached the man with an entire cart absolutely overflowing with groceries. Turns out the man with saving a place in line for the woman who was apparently his wife. The man in front of me just told him, “No you’re not going to do this”. I could completely understand the audacity of the situation since I was also standing on that line. We had all chosen that line based on the amount a product people in front of us were buying. This old b*stard thought it was perfectly fine for his wife to join the line with a massive cart of food and f*ck everyone who happened to be standing behind them. It took a few times of the guy in front of me telling the couple, “No you’re not going to do this” before the couple finally walked off with their massive cart to find another line.I’ll never forget the look on the geezers face as he turned around glaring at the man in front of me for having the unmitigated gall to put his foot down and stop this prick from having his wife shove her way on to the line with a world-class amount of food. He was just absolutely outraged that the guy had stopped him. You just can’t deal with some people.I was grocery shopping at the commissary on an army post and after I was done, I headed to a check out line and got behind an elderly woman. When it was her turn to check out, she moved forward with her cart to start placing her items on the conveyor belt. Suddenly, a soldier came running up with his items in hand, got in front of the woman and proceeded to place his items in front of hers on the conveyor belt and announced “I work for the general and he has a dinner party tonight so I’m going to go ahead of you.” Without missing a beat the woman snapped “Yeah, well I AM the general’s wife so you can get back to the end of the line.” Sheepishly and without saying another word, the soldier removed his items and left.
