public service announcement....

While standing in the check out line at Staples, with one measly item in my hand and cash in the other, I was struck with by something I watched going on in front of me. This particular thing happens frequently and tends to irritate me.

A woman stood watching the young clerk scanning her items, with a phone clutched in her freshly manicured talons of course. It was practically pressed in to her ear while she spoke to someone out in the ether about how little Johnny is first in his class and an amazing athlete. She waited and talked and when the kid checking her out was done scanning her four hundred or so items, she decided to begin rummaging through her laundry bag sized purse for her wallet.

Now. Here's my issue. In most stores, after they have scanned the first item, you can slide your card and punch in your super secret code to pay for the mounds of useless crap you're buying. Or, you can get out that green stuff we all used to use for such transactions. And if they donít allow you to pay while they are scanning, you can still magically retrieve your mode of payment from where ever you stash it.

But no. She waited. As did the rest of us who had gathered to watch her spelunking expedition into the thing she carried slung over her shoulder. How can the person who packs it and carries it look so confused as to what is in it? I half expected her to pull out tire and exclaim how she'd been looking for that.

Why is it that people (read women) wait to rifle through their bag when they know right from the very moment they step into line that they are going to need some way to pay for their crap?

Balloons are not going to fall from the ceiling and the clerk is not going to be so dazzled by your beauty that you're not going to have to pay, lady. Get your wallet out so that the rest of the world does not have to wait while you traverse the depths of your Louis Vuitton handbag.

People today have a shitty sense of entitlement and little to no respect for their fellow human beings. Courtesy is often second fiddle to the whim of what I call the Starbucks mentality. This is why I have a certian dislike for people in general until I get to know them... after that it either goes up hill or down.

I always make sure to have my card/money out as Im walking up to the register so I can get in and out quick.

I love it when they stick the SLOWEST POSSIBLE person at the 10 items or less register.....

I think check writing should be illegal. Everyone knows you're writing a check because you can't cover it on your debit card.

9 WORDS WOMEN USE


(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are
right and you need to shut up.

(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an
hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five
more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

(3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something,
and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing
usually end in fine.

(4) Go Ahead: This is a dare, not permission. Don't Do It!

(5) Loud Sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement
often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an
idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing
with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) That's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women
can make to a man. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard
before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

(7) Thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or Faint. Just
say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true,
unless she says "Thanks a lot" - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not
thanking you at all. DO NOT say "you're welcome" ... that will bring on
a "whatever").

(8) Whatever: Is a women's way of saying F YOU!

(9) Don't worry about it, I've got it: Another dangerous statement,
meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several
times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man
asking "What's wrong?" For the woman's response refer to # 3.
