Best Story Of The Week

images-2 I’m in the 5 items or less check-out line at Whole Foods with a young kid around 20, in front of me, getting coffee and a muffin.

I say, “Wouldn’t you like a little bag for your muffin?” It’s self-service so you come to the counter just to pay.

He swings around and says, “NO…AND WHAT’S IT TO YOU ANYWAY?”

Before I can react, a woman behind me says, “That wasn’t nice.  She was only trying to be helpful to you. You should be ashamed of yourself.”

He looks properly put in his place saying, “Yeah, ya know, I’m sorry, I just got up. I’m sorry lady,” before sauntering out.

“He just needed a good kick in the pants,” the woman says , “you know how young people can be.”

“Yes, yes…I know.”

Have a nice weekend everyone, and thank you for all the lovely words written about Connie.

My graces to you.

    O tempora, o mores! I wonder how much the dearth of good manners is a product of advertising. Anyone with something to sell seems to believe they have a divine right to be in your face: little wonder that folk crave distance. That is not to offer your Whole Foods ruffian justification: just musing on where we lost our way.

    If that was the best story, you’ve probably not had a good week. 😯
    Another exercise in lack of emotional control. 😦

    Oh boy, I wonder what happens when his boss tells him what to do? My guess is he probably doesn’t have a job, or lost the one he had. I bet his parents are counting the days until he moves his grumpy self out.

    Well, at least he apologized.


  5. I just imagine Baby Huey standing there throwing a tantrum. On the bright side it was nice to have another badass step up to the plate. That my friend seems to be rare these days in the jungle.
    Hope your weekend gets a little brighter.

  6. Reminds me of a young woman (kid really at 19) who worked for me. She made it very clear she didn’t like to be told what to do. I told her I didn’t know how to handle that as that was what my job was. She laughed and said that maybe it’s more the attitude that bothers her. We worked together well for the 6 months she was there but I was glad to see her go. She got upset over the silliest things. I hope she grew a thicker skin. Maybe your guy wasn’t a morning person?

  7. lol, that guy really needed to chill out somewhat. Whole foods is a great place to shop. Happy times being there.

    Temper – it gets the best of all of us sometimes. Hopefully he went about the rest of his day checking his attitude. Let’s hope…~Elle
