Dear Inconsiderate People in America
How many times a day do I get irritated with inconsiderate, ignorant people you might ask? Oh, the number would be countless.
Take today for example. I was running a little late to yoga (class starts at 9 am), but was starving since I hadn't eaten breakfast. I wanted to just run into Wild Oats and grab an energy bar and kombucha. I ran back to get the bar and drink, and hustled to the front of the store to check-out. There were two check out lanes open. One was a normal line that was backed up with people buying regular amounts of groceries. The other line specifically says "10 items or less".
On a sidenote, it is just common courtesy to allow someone to go ahead of you if you have a grocery cart packed with items and that person only has one thing.
Well anyways, I make my way to the express lane only to find a woman with a grocery cart full of every kind of vegetable imaginable. She had cabbage, asparagus, carrots, spinach, etc. Not to mention every kind of granulated sugar, all in bags that would require the cashier to have to punch in a bar code. I know she had at least 40 items in her cart.
Now why on Earth would you go to the express lane with all of that crap?! And on top of that, here I am, standing impatiently behind her with TWO items and she doesn't even have the common courtesy to allow me to go in front of her. (trust me, i know she saw me giving her the evil eye). Also, why would the cashier allow this? Couldn't she have just told her to go in another lane?!
So needless to say, I was running late to yoga today because of the inconsiderate yuppie who decided that she would haul her kart-full of every thing that is offered in the wild oats store to the express lane.
I know I should not get mad about such petty things, but come on. I am so tired of people's stupidity. Okay, that was my one rant for the month. I'll go back to being nice :-)
PS- this picture is seriously what her cart looked like. seriously. Oh, and she didn't use a recyclable bag. Okay, i am really done.
