Tantrum Thursday 9/20/12

A Tantrum, oh, lets see, there are so many to choose from!?!?
I think today I’ll talk about ‘line cheeters’!!  Yes, that’s right, LINE CHEATERS!!  The other day I was in a BIG BOX store.  I has just run in to grab a few things for dinner that I had forgotten.  So, in my hands I had about 5 itmes – NO CART.  I stepped up to the ’20 and under’ items EXPRESS checkout and stood there.  Yep, just stood there!  The guy in front of me had a gallon of milk….that’s it!
BUT, the lady in front of him had an entire cart full of groceries.  And when I mean full, I mean FULL!  This lady had about $300 worth of maybe 2 weeks worth of groceries.  Now, I could have just moved to another lane, but of course, they were all full.  Oh ya, did I tell you yet that this was the ONLY express lane open???
So, here comes the ‘rub’.  The Big Box staff can NOT say anything to the lady – it is against the law!  So it is up to us, strangers, who have already gotten upset to say something!  You risk everything from a dirty look to someone pulling out a gun – IF – you say anything!  So, what did the man and I do?  Waited, waited, and waited – with just a ‘little’ huffing and puffing.
So, I have a couple of questions…..
1.  Are you one of the people who use the EXPRESS lane even if you have a full cart? 
2.  Are  you one of us who just stands there and takes it?
3.  Are you the one who yells and starts a fight with the lady that has the full cart?
4.  Are you just one of those that will ‘line’ hop until you find the right line?
Here is today’s newest listing… this is a FUN and beautiful necklace set.  If you look carefully you can see that the Blue Quartz is actually cut in the shape of leaves!!!  Click on the photo to see more photos!!

And as a closing thought I would like to leave you with this;
No amount of time or distance can come between good friends.  There is a bond that stays strong no matter the months or miles between two people who call each other ‘friend’.

    At what time was dinner served after all that waiting?
    I just figure a person who cheats will pay a high bad karma tab…I’ve been known to mention that point on more than one occasion.

      Dinner was served on-time, but my temper might have been a little hot for a while after!! Thanks for check in!?!?

      I agree with MCatherine! Karma comes in many forms regardless of whether your actions are small or really big!

    I can’t say I’ve ever come across a line cheater THAT bad before, but if it were me, I’d probably not say anything. I’m normally a patient person so I’d just wait if I didn’t have to be somewhere pressing. Now my boyfriend on the other hand would probably speak his mind! He’s not very patient. LOL

    You’d think some people would use common sense and not be as selfish as that, though!
