Grocery shopping today...

Got to the cash register and worked on loading up the belt so the cashier can ring up my purchases.

Just about done unloading the buggy when this lady walks up behind me and proceeds to stand so close in my personal space that I felt violated.

I mean, seriously, I felt like asking her if she had an news she wanted to give my gynecologist since she was so far up my ass!!!

Next time you want to be up my ass, buy me a damn drink first!

And you didn't accidentally back up into her?

No... I was trying to be on my best behaviour.

Gawd I hate that! Why do people do that? It's so weird!

LisaP posted 8/18/2013 14:21 PM

Ahhh yes. How about the one's who proceed to place one of those separator sticks down and unload their stuff while you are still unloading your buggy....and clearly your buggy is still half full and that little space they left you is not enough!

I practice defensive driving when in the check-out lane. Never EVER leave enough room for the person behind you to reach the belt UNTIL you have completely unloaded your cart. And then keep the cart between them and you.

That stick would've been up her butt so fast.

As it is, I ended up with her Jell-o No Bake Cheesecake mix.

Oh, I am the QUEEN of stepping backwards into people, bending over and shoving my fanny into them, and for the beyoutch who started loading her shit onto the belt while I was still unloading, I turned around and tossed her stuff back into her cart. Do NOT crowd me, people. You will get the evile mare look and one foot WILL come 1/2 way up to kick! Too much time around horses ....

I'm with NIK. I always keep my cart behind me while unloading. And while I'm paying. Nothing I hate more than some asshole right next to me while I'm keying in my pin.

The weirdest thing ever was the man who came up and started "helping" me unload my groceries onto the belt.

WTF?????????? Keep your hands off my food, you weirdo!

jrc1963 posted 8/18/2013 19:06 PM

Some random guy was helping you with your groceries???

That is very odd.

At my favorite store the employees/baggers will help unload your cart if there's no one in front of you... I love it.

Yep. It was the FREAKIEST thing ever. And of course, I am a polite Southern girl who could not dream of offending some random perv, so I just finished as quick as I could so as to get out of there. I think I threw a very weak, "Um, thanks?" in his direction. It was bizarre.

I know, me too, HFSSC. We need to learn how to be meaner. We're all like this 👼. And we need to be like this😈.

Ooohhh. Eeeewwww....I would have said "no thank you. Ive got it".

What I cant stand is I have my cart behind me. Im kind enough to move it ahead of me so to give the person enough room and they move in front of the pin pad so I have to lean over. Its happened way too many times. I now give a tert "excuse me".

And to the person who bends over and backs her tush into said offender, I was waiting for you to say you had let one pass, lol.

Its not only the food store. Its the everywhere. More than once ive had to tell a customer to step back while the customer in front of me was paying. You wouldnt believe twice the fool talked back.

Ok I'm a bit weird about people that I don't know getting in my personal space, so like others in the line I keep my cart behind me and load the belt from the front of the cart.
I have been known to just say excuse me in a bitchy tone to get the stuff off the bottom of the car if they have closed in on my space.

I do have to admit I have helped people unload their carts in front of me, usually if they are elderly, and seems like it's a lot of work for them (I guess that's the nurse in me). It is helpful to them, and me because it moves them along, and I'm not just waiting, something I don't do well at.

HFSSC posted 8/19/2013 08:48 AM

Tushnurse, I'm willing to bet that you offer to help, rather than just grabbing stuff out of someone else's cart. And this may be sexist or something, but I would not be offended by a woman offering to help as opposed to a random strange man just grabbing the stuff.

I am incredibly anal about my personal space. Last night wh wanted to "get close". Ya ok dude you have your own pillow. Get off of mine and move the heck over. I'm hanging off the bed...

In public I must have some sort of "look of death" because I just look at people violating my space and they move back.

It is legal to carry a tazer in Florida.

Just saying ...

Me too. We were in Branson a couple weeks ago and I was standing in line to get Mickey Gilley's autograph, with my GD & GS, and some lady kept pushing her HUGE boobs up against me. After the third time, I turned around and gave her *the look.* She stopped, so I know she knew what she was doing. Then I left the line to use the rest room and when I came back, my 13 y/o GD said that when I was gone the lady's H started telling her how beautiful she was and asked her where she lived....this guy never said one other word the WHOLE TIME we stood in that line! What a weird couple. They looked to be in their mid 70s.

End t/j.
