I ran a quick errand to the store to return a few videos, & get a couple more. I picked out some & this lady with two kids walked up to the counter maybe 10 seconds ahead of me & started checking out. No big deal. I was in a hurry, because my wife was angry that I took the only vehicle to do the errand, as day care was just getting over, & she wanted to go to the gym to exersize, so I was told to be quick. So anyways, this female, who's checking out ahead of me walks off into the video store to shop some more. I saw what she was doing, & said in a mild voice,..." Come on lady, your holding everyone else up." That's when the checkout girl, voided her checkout, & started mine. The womans teenage duaghters face showed a slight feeling of shock, & the 8 to 10 year old had a strange look as well.

So was I rude, or was she the rude one?

you are fine, she was ignorant, and rude. You may have returned the favor though!!!!

She was rude! Hell, you don't check out if you're not ready.

She was rude, you were rude. Two rudes make a right!

She was rude. You may have considered asking the clerk to check you out while the woman shopped rather than address her directly. Rude or not, she is presumed to be a lady. You are presumed to be a gentleman and should not be curt with a woman you are unfamiliar with.

She was being ignorant & self-centered.

Too bad for her kids that mum is setting such a self-centred example.

You should have slapped her as well and spit in her face.

Checkout means checkout to me. You have got your booty and are ready to exit premises.

Folks around here get to the checkout and hold up the line while their offspring filter in with more goods, saying "hold on a minute" and then arguing with offspring about how they can't have it...

I deal with it well now, amazing how age mellowed me out, somewhat.

Searcher, I say you did well.

Just so ya'll know, I didn't yell it, or say it in an angry voice. Just a mild soft, voice to let her know I & others were waiting while she re-shoped.

I know this, if my wife want's to run & get something while were checking out, if she not back by the time the checkout is done, if anyone is waiting behind me she knows to get in line behind them.

If I haven't started to unload, I will let others go ahead of me, till she gets back. I also write my check out as far as I can ahead of time, so as to make it a speedy process, or I have my cash in my hand when the total is reached. I do my best to always make it quick & easy, for others as well as myself.

LADIES are NOT rude or CELF CENTERED. She addressed that presumption by putting everyone on hold...as a self centered cunt. A LADY would have asked the people behind her if it was okay, or, she would have offered for the next person to go ahead hoping the the person behind him was a LADY or GENTLEMAN and would let her cut back in line. Winches, strumpets, chicken-heads, limosine -liberals, welfare mommas, are rude and celf centered.

You did the right thing. To hell with this self centered cum dumpster.

Her! She tried to completely monopolize the clerk, wasting the time of anybody else who wanted to check out. I can't stand people like that. It's good that her daughters saw her get smacked down for being a bitch.
Link Posted: 8/12/2004 7:08:22 PM EDT
Not rude on your part at all. BTW was she a MILF?
Link Posted: 8/12/2004 10:07:06 PM EDT
It was very arrogant of her to assume that noone would mind waiting for her to shop more. If you're not through pay for they stuff at the counter and let the people behind you be checked out. You can always go back to get more after that. I think we need to band together to teach basic manor's to the people of the world. This will be lesson two. Lesson one;Always say please.
Link Posted: 8/13/2004 11:54:53 AM EDT
Next time,....& I know there will be. I will say, excuse me miss, are you shoping or checking out? The reason I ask is I'd like to check out, but I can't till you do. or address the check out person, & ask if I may be checked out while the nuckle head,....er....other person shops some more.
Link Posted: 8/13/2004 11:59:15 AM EDT
Very rude ! Don't be an asshat !
(Just joking, you should have slapped the kids, too! )

Are you supposed to reserve a spot in line at the grocery store before you get what you need? Fuck no, when your shopping, you get what you want and then you go get in line. The lady was very inconsiderate, you didn't do anything wrong.

I'm glad to see that for the most part ya'll agree with me, in that I didn't believe I was rude. I could have stated it different, or talked with the checker instead, but acording to my peers on this site I did pretty good.

Was what I did rude?
