B**** at the grocery - what would you have done?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

At the grocery this moring, I had unloaded all my items onto the conveyer belt.  They were a little spaced out, but there was no one behind us at the time and the cashier hadn't moved the belt up all the way so there was about a foot of unoccupied space nearest the cashier.

A woman came up behind me and said "Do you mind if I move some of this stuff up so I can put down my things?"

I of course say "Oh sure" and take the one step over to get to the end of our things, grab a separator and as I go to move my stuff, she shoves all of our items together (we had all our soft stuff at the end, so bread and chips). I muttered "Well I was going to move it, jeez" and she just snottily said "Thank you."

Now I know she said "Do you mind if I move your stuff" but in the past people really mean "Would you mind moving some of your stuff" and she didn't have to mutilate everything!

Also, not sure if it matters but she had 3 items, so it wasn't anything she couldn't have held.  A loaf of bread, two tomatoes in a bag and a head of lettuce.

What would you have said and done?

LOL Fair enough.

Quoting Anonymous 48: It would have been a WASTE.
A waist is a part of your body.

Quoting Ivoryhoney:

Exactly what you did and said was right. Anything more than that would have been a waist. Can't let people like that affect your day.

Ugh, some people.

nothing. I know it may sound shocking to you but it's entirely possible to ignore rude behavior rather than return it with you own.

I would have said yes I would mind if YOU move my stuff but I am more than willing to move then so there is room for you. But i hate when people do that shit. Its a pet peeve of mine.

I agree, people get shot or even killed over little things like this.

Quoting K3412:

Nothing. It's not worth engaging in something like that with a stranger.

I would have had some smart ass remark for her, I'm sure. What a B.

Depends on my mood some days I'd take on that irritation and some days it would not phase me.
