did you say that outloud?

cringe worthy


In Line at the Deli Counter…

So I was in line today at the deli counter at Safeway. There was a guy in front of me who hadn’t yet been helped, and then there was me. But this isn’t about me or the guy in front of me. This is about the lady who was already  being helped.

This lady…we’ll call her Lady, for short, apparently couldn’t decide what she wanted, because she was talking to the sandwich-making-lady about her different options, and she even sampled a couple different cheeses. Finally she got down to what she wanted, and the sandwich-making-lady went about making that samich. Apparently it was a turkey samich because just as she was about to finish up, the sandwich-making-lady asked Lady if she wanted cranberries on the sandwich. To which she decided, Yes, she did, but could she please move the cheese to the other side of the sandwich and put the cranberries over the turkey, not on the other side, which housed the avocado.

And then Lady asked if sandwich-making-lady could cut the sandwich diagonally.

“I always cut the sandwiches diagonally,” the sandwich-making-lady said not so patiently.

Lady’s lucky I didn’t kick her in her shins.

    Some people! I always hate when I am at the grocery store and I have like 1 or 2 items and I get into the 10 items or less isle, and the person infront of me has like 20 things. I am sure we all have done something like this a time or two,lol.

    I know I’m not supposed to laugh, but lol. I hope you and the woman behind the counter had a good laugh about lady after she left.

    I always cut the sandwiches diagonally. Funny stuff.

    When people like that irritate me, I don’t even have to say anything…my kids will. “Mom, why is that lady taking so long with her sandwich? How much longer do we have to wait for her to decide?” They usually get the point. Usually.

    I don’t know about you but reading about that sandwich made me hungry.

    I get cross when I’m hungry … I don’t know if I’d have been as patient with Lady as you were, Trish … I might have accidentally kicked her in the shins! 🙂

    Why did she have to have the food moved all about? It’s a sandwich…it’s all going the same place!

    Things like this are just another reasong for Why I Hate Us. Who cares what order food is placed on a sandwich? It’s all going to get chewed up in your mouth and mixed together anyway. Good grief.

    Wow. I know I like my sandwiches cut diagonally, but no way I’d ever ask someone at a sandwich counter to do it that way for me!

    I can’t even begin to tell you how irritating I find people at the grocery stores most times. I would have been rolling my eyes in many directions over this one.

    People are so weird. I’m glad I’m normal… and, of course, you Trish – you’re normal… and your readers… and…
