Have you ever had one of these moments?

So an interested thing happened at the grocery store today. For one moment, I thought I might actually get hit in the face. I was standing in the canned foods aisle, picking up some diced tomatoes, when a trashy-looking woman came rushing through with her buggy. There was a Mexican woman blocking the aisle, and when the trashy-one got to her, she (trashy) got really flustered and was sighing loudly and stomping her feet. After about 5 seconds, the Mexican lady turned around and said something in Spanish. From the tone and the fact that she moved her buggy, I assumed she was apologizing. The trashy-one barked out "I don't speak Mexican!", and before I could think I said "Hmph, you don't speak English either." That's not really like me, and I still can't believe I said it, but she turned on me quicker than lightning. She cussed me, I gave her my best "you're an idiot" look, and she left.

Ever speak before you think?

  • LOL I have said some things under my breath. I actually almost had to call the police on a lady whose parking space I "stole" She called me a bitch and said she was going to punch me in my face to which my response was for her to get a life. People really arent raised with manners anymore and its sad but Im actually shocked to see when people do act like theyve had home training.
    Anyways good for you!

  • LOL! Good for you. I dont think I have the balls to say anything in most situations but I have been known to let go of a little word vomit now and then.
