Writing Can Be Murder

When I’m arrested

Filed under: Uncategorized — love2wryte @ 4:43 pm

I have no doubt it’ll be at the local supermarket since that’s the place I get in more arguments than any other.

Take yesterday’s situation: the lines were ridiculously long and everyone was muttering about it.

A cashier walked over and opened the line next to mine, saying, “I can help the next person in line.”

I strive to be a decent and polite person, so I pulled my cart back and waved the person who was waiting in front of me (who was the next person in line) over. But out of the corner of my eye, this *%*&^ who hasn’t been waiting on line at all decides she’s going to jump into the just-opened line.

Hell no!

I swung my cart into her path so that she crashed her cart into it. We had a heated exchange — I know I called her selfish and inconsiderate and let loose a diatribe about entitled idiots.

DH says I shouldn’t let my righteous anger get the best of me (c’mon it’s not like I smote her) and I say that people’s bad behavior is CONSTANTLY allowed to go unchecked and that it just encourages those who treat their fellow human beings poorly. What do you think?

For more aggravation check out the post Angela James put up on her blog on June 12th “Is this what we’ve come to?” http://nicemommy-evileditor.com/blog/



  1. Don’t worry. You can call me if you’re arrested. [I maynot have the dough to bail you out, but I’ll definitely visit you in jail and bring you a cake with a file in it.]

  2. I agree with you. These types of actions make my blood boil, and there is no reason why you cannot make your point to someone who is being so overtly rude. Hail, Jen!

  3. Jen — Do I get my choice of cake?

    Cyndi — I think everyone should walk around saying “Hail, Jen!”
