i'm going anon because i know i'll be bashed! lol
so anyways i was out grocery shopping in the morning for tonight's dinner. woke up early so I could come back before DH left for work, that way i didn't have to haul my 3 year old and 5 year old with me. crazy shoppers everywhere and i myself was in a hurry to get it done and head home
anyways i had this stupid redbox dvd which i had to return 3 days ago and i kept forgetting. it was costing me everyday. there's a redbox in my grocery store so i thought i'd return it today. i go in and see a long line infront of the redbox machine. i think i'll finish up my shopping first and then return the movie on my way out.
i'm rushing through shopping to get everything done because i'm getting texts from DH to hurry home as he's getting late already. on my way out i see the line infront of the redbox gone and a lady in her mid 40's with possibly her daughter 8-ish browsing through movies. the took good 10-12 mins. her daughter was taking literally 5 mins selecting a movie, reading it's reviews, selecting to rent it, and then changing her mind and deleting it from the shopping cart! urghhh!! i'm debating weather i should go home and get another fine for today... so instead i ask them politely, " ma'am? i just have to return one dvd..do you mind if i just pop that in and you can go on with your renting? i'll be quick"
i've had people ask me this atleast 10 times before when i'm going through movies if they can return and i let them. no biggie right? maybe i want that movie..
so she turns around and gives me a dirty look "or..you can wait when we're done renting!!"
i'm a little taken aback. but i don't say anything and mumble an apology. she takes another 5-8 mins purpose. i am on the verge of storming out but i don't want to give her the satisfaction.
after finishing up she looked at me pointedly and said, "i'm sure someone waited for you sometime when you took your time"
that pissed me off a little bit and i replied back "i try to hurry up when someone's waiting"
she said, "well patience is a virtue"
i just said "whatever " and went back to returning my movies and ignored to whatever she was saying next. she kept talking angrily as she walked away with her daughter.
when i told my mom over the phone she said i was at fault. my husband agreed with her too. i did feel bad later..
so that's my christmas eve bloop for today!!! lol
any holiday frustration story that you want to share?
