Being left alone in line at the store!

Published by at 3:00 am under Jerks,Why?!?

Here’s the scene… you are in line at the supermarket with someone making a purchase. You are close enough to the front of the line to read all about Jenifer Aniston’s broken heart when all of a sudden your shopping partner says “oh wait, I will be right back I need to grab something” and they disappear into the ether. What?

I immediately start to panic. What if they don’t make it back in time? I’m already in the belly of the beast, I’m past the magazine perimeter! I’m in the CANDY ZONE! Am I going to have to remove everything from the conveyor belt? Fuck! Why would anyone do this to me?

Sure, they always casually show up just in time and everything works out but what the hell, I almost had a heart attack. I’m not kidding, I HATE being left in line alone!

    So true, so very very true.

    Yup, definitely a semi-panic moment. Plus, all the people in line behind you are looking at you like you’re dumb, like you’re just choosing to stay there with your thumb up your ass instead of paying. So you have to keep saying, to anyone near who can hear ‘My friend went to go get something… uh, they should be back any time now’. Ugh.

    I can’t stand going shopping, be it food or pantyhose to wear on my head for my other job… Seriously, me + store = unhappy me. It’s a combination of many things, the sodium vapor (or florescent) lights buzzing and green, the windowless walls, all the shit made in China… you name it.

    Now, not to say I don’t go shopping – I just know what I’m after, where it is, and don’t go when the rest of the world is awake. Here in SFO, people tend to not get up early – so hitting the grocery store when they open in the morning keeps me from going insane, which is important… you don’t want me breaking out the pantyhose unnecessarily.

    I once shared a cart with my mother and when we were ready to check out, we headed into the 10 items or less line, since we each had less than 10 items. My mother forgot something and stepped away from the line and I began to hear serious grumbling behind me. Finally, a senior woman behind me says, “This is a 10 items or less line!!!!” and as I turned to explain, she shouted, “THEY DON’T SPEAK ENGLISH!”

    That’s when I blew a fuse and started screaming at the old woman, “My mother and I are sharing a cart. We each have less than ten items. Do you understand that WOMAN? Because that’s ENGLISH, you BITCH.” At that point, the woman pretended she was deaf and the rest of the people in line began to cower.

    My mother returned to me screaming and she said, “You have quite the temper!”

    That is one of the many reasons why I’m on the maximum dosage of Zoloft.

    Always food shop alone. Or with the kids, if you have them. There’s no point in having more than one adult in a group while food shopping.
