Yesterday was grocery shopping and errand day. It went fairly well even though DH decided to go with...
While I was checking out at the second grocery store, I obeserved something that really made me stop and think...
Here is the scenario...what would you do...
You are the second person in line behind a woman with a full cart load of groceries. You are young (30's?) and are with your scruffy husband. (this is who was in line, not me!, well my DH looked scruffy too, but we aren't the ones I'm talking about right now) The checker scans ALL of the groceries for the person in front of you and the person hands over coupons. One of the coupons doesn't match the product. It was either the wrong size or style or for whatever reason wasn't right. The person buying the groceries heads off (walking quickly, I might add) and comes back with the correct item to match the coupon. She then apologizes to the you. Remember you are the second person in line, not the person that left and came back. Ok? Got It?
A. Yell, scream and berate the person for leaving and getting the correct item.
B. Smile when she apologizes and understand
C. Something else
A. or B.???
i am really interested.
This IS what happened. The couple behind the lady screamed and yelled and berated her for leaving the cart. I was flabbergasted. I don't happen to know either of these people, but I sure felt sorry for the lady that had the coupon wrong. I mean, really, in this day and age you need to save all the money you can. She made a simple mistake. Was the few seconds delay that important to you? The same amount of time passed and this couple decided to spend it pissed off!
Ok, off my soap box. I have just this minute talked my hubby into taking me to the quilt shop and out to dinner (ok, I am typing this today, but you won't see it until tomorrow, so YESTERDAY I talked him into taking me to the quilt shop and out to dinner, got it?) Of course, I should know what I bought, BUT I will share with you tomorrow!! Cause then I will know!!! LOL
