As I was going through the bakery, there was a woman that was wheeling around a shopping cart with her child sitting in the cart who keeping a keen eye on everything her mom was doing. When her mom stopped to grab some sweet pastries, she offered one up to her daughter to keep her occupied while she did her shopping. I thought to myself, “Man, that kid has it good. Food and a free ride.” Those were the good old days.
When I was finished buying what I needed I made my way to the check-out line. In front of me was a lady, also with a small child in her cart, that must be hooked on Pringles chips. It was either that or the store had a great sale on that particular item that day. I counted 10 cans of Pringles she was buying. She had a few other things, but the Pringles is what caught my attention.
She had 10 cans to ring through, not including the can she had opened and was eating while the cashier rang in her groceries. Really? You couldn’t wait to get to your vehicle before you dove into your can of chips?
The cashier was trying to carry on a bit of a conversation, but this lady didn’t say a word. She just ate her chips while she watched the cashier do her job. That was just a little rude, I thought. At least she didn’t slice open a watermelon and start munching on that!
I can’t recall ever seeing anyone do that. It seemed a little odd to me.
