Yeah Well, Screw You Too!

Some long haired punk ass kid cashier at the grocery store tried to give me a ration of shit tonight as I was checking out.

What about? My EBT (SNAP Benefit) grocery purchase. I was too tired and and too old and too damned hungry to hold back. I may have caused a small scene in the grocery store. I ain't saying what I said, it likely shouldn't be said in mixed company at ANY time. I don't really remember exactly what was said. Started out low where only he could he me, and rose in pitch and timber as I got angrier.

Needless to say, I don't think he'll be giving any one any crap about this kind of purchase anytime soon. I think he'll be lucky if he still has a goddam job by the end of shift!

The ears of said punk ass kid as well as any one else within close proximity were likely burned off in the blistering tirade I let loose with.

I was escorted from the store, with my groceries (which I did pay for) out to the parking lot by the manager, who seemed to be a nice enough fellow. Although he was in rather a hurry to get me out of the store. At least that's the way it looked to me. *laughs*

I was so angry I don't even remember what it was I said. Incident put me off my dinner though. Tried to eat. Just not happenning.

I can miss a meal or two.

I'll say one thing for the snobby little fuck though... He had GREAT hair! Long and shiny and blond and straight as an arrow.

Glad I ain't a gun totin' right wing - wingnut. It could have ended badly. *grins* I haven't gone off like that in quite some time. In public OR private.

I"m sure I'm not the only one wondering about the details and glad you weren't locked and loaded, so to speak. There are so many people dealing with economic stress these days, I don't know how anyone can be so insulated, well anyone working in a grocery store can be so insulated that they could think for a second that they could throw shade. God forbid you should buy fresh fruit instead of canned fruit salad. I'm going off on a guess that it had to do with your food choices. I've witness cashiers and customers making snarky comments about that, but it's been after the purchasing customer has moved off out of earshot. Young buster has a lot to learn.

Sorry you had to deal with that. I hope his manager (verbally) boxes his ears in.

No guns here, cuz. Haven't owned a gun in a lonnnnnnnnng time. And I left my sword at home too.

He just took a couple verbal swipes at me before and after I swiped my card.I guess I was just stressed, and tired from the day at the J-O-B and went off. He (and I) should probably be glad I don't walk around on a rolling boil any more.

He looked a bit surprised when I started and positively horrified by the time the manager took him aside.

*heh* Even though I think i went willingly down to the little fucker's level and even lower than that, there is a special place in Hell for snarky shits like that.

If he's done it to you, he's done it to other people and it's better for him to learn now that such things have consequences - losing a job or getting your ass beat are examples of real world consequences.

The little bastard OUGHT to be fired. NO ONE has a right to talk shit about someone using benefits- it could be any of us at any time, and if justice is served, he will find his sorry ass out on the unemployment line.

I don't wish that on people lightly, but that is WAY overstepping any bounds of decency.

I'd say you were tired and we all can't control our emotions when we're like that.

Really, you should not have to work so hard at your age. Sadly, the reality is, we do have to.

I think I might have blisteringly 'gone off' if someone been judging or made sanctimonious comments to me about that sort of thing. Who are these people carrying on about welfare in your country? Do they not realise that 'there for the grace of God go I?'.

And your missing a meal may help with your weight loss :) But make sure you are getting all of your nutrients, if you can. I know I'd struggle because I would be so tired. I think your endurance levels will go up with time, though. I hope so, for your sake.

And I don't think that kid will be making any of those comments again in a hurry! Good work, T!

Cant say as I blame you. I used to take so much crap and now I stand up for myself. No one knows anyones story. How can they judge. I have heard snarky things because I park in handicapped spaces. Actually I have a tag, My mother got it for me when I take her places. But I have a bad back and a bum knee and by gosh I take it when I feel bad. Im not about to run a sprint.

Hope you have a better day!

People just do. Judge.

Screw 'em. I think I told the little snot just that. Except I was a lot less polite. And certainly a lot more crude!

Eh? He made a statement about you using EBT? Nah. I'd complain to corporate, get him fired, and maybe even get some free stuff from the store.
