August Happiness Challenge -- Day 30
As she was being rung up, she continued verbally abusing the woman she was with, saying there was no way she could possibly walk that far to the car, "you idiot," and demanded the "idiot" go out and pull closer to the door. Then she yelled at the girl at the register for how high the prices were and how unfair it is that you need a CVS card to get coupons and sale prices.
She was so loud, I could hear her through my headphones. She was so unrelentingly hostile I was getting really upset.
Then two teenage girls came in. One girl hooked her thumb at the old lady and asked her friend, "She tripping or what?" THAT shut Mean Granny right up. And made me laugh.
I must learn to adopt that casual attitude when confronted with rudeness. "She tripping or what?"
