So, we hit the grocery store tonight. Got our list, slid around, got what we needed, no problems. Get up to the register...and there, my troubles began. Family in front of us...well...you know the type. Have a truckload of stuff, but they're picking and choosing what to have rung up, checking the total every so often, because they only have a certain amount of money.
These guys took the cake. Two cartloads of stuff, and by the time bitch checked the total, she was $40 over their limit. Now, knowing this would be an issue, what is the dumbest thing they could do? You guessed it: bag the groceries. Now they have to go hunting through the bags, picking and choosing what to put back, and checking the total each time to see how much more they have to put back. And do they get rid of stuff that makes a difference? Nope, they're putting back stuff that's a dollar, 2 dollars, piddly little shit.
To top it all off, what was their limit? $238...how do you miss that? I mean, come on, we're talking basic math and shopping skills. you have a certain amount of money, and all foods are clearly marked with a price, so all you have to do is add prices as you go. Shit, carry a calculator or a pad and pen; we're not talking rocket science, here. You do this shit, it backs up everyone, we're all waiting on your sorry ass to learn to COUNT, the cashier hates you, the management hates you, WE all hate you...and you're too much of a selfish asshole to care.
It's little things like this that would be the easiest thing to fix, if only humans weren't such bastards. A few minor things like this handled, and the general level of humanity would go up a notch. But NOOOOOOOO, these fuckers just keep populating, and you end up with low-class welfare clans, lowering the general intelligence level.
I used to want to help enlighten humanity so that we could all get off this rock. These days, I want to do it to just get them off of MY rock. Fuck you, you don't deserve to live on the same planet as me.
Present company excepted, of course.
