but I am really irritable today. It's overcast, reasonably warm and UNreasonably humid. Then again I had to go grocery shopping today and everything was just plucking at my nerves.
Customer Service Desk: Little old woman returning a bag of potato chips. Didn't have her receipt. Her customer card didn't match up with her phone number and she was giving the clerk a hard time. There was one of those small carry baskets on the counter where I was standing and I set it off to the side. When the little old lady finally finished her business she walked over to where I was standing and snatched the the basket and muttered something to me. I just walked away, thinking unkind thoughts.
I needed cooking wine and a birthday card. I knew exactly which of each I wanted. The card was no longer in stock but hoo-boy were there lots of Halloween cards - don't want no flippin' Halloween card.
I couldn't make heads or tails of the wine and spirits department - walked in circles and finally just grabbed the first reasonably priced bottle and went downstairs.
The price sign on the garlic always irritates me (2 for $1.00/50¢ each) - oooh big bargain! I bought one.
Cruising the aisles I hear a woman talking in that idiot child voice "Can you help me find the peanut butter?" I figure she is talking to a baby. She rounds the aisle and I see the child is approximately 4. Even if the kid WAS an idiot, I hate when people speak to children that way. I don't talk to my cats that way. Irritated me.
Lots of check-out lanes open my husband chooses the guy I hate - he is so smarmy. As always my husband requests that the bags be packed tight and don't double them. Mr. Smarmy does a piss-poor job and I re-pack everything - right in front of him. I didn't say anything, I think the expression on my face said it all. I did grumble and mumble on my way out tho.
Plus there was no music - so no dancing for me. Stores need to have music. I need to have music when I have to do unpleasant things like shopping. Next time I'll try to remember to bring my own music - Feh!
