O/T please don't stand so close to me
In the grand scheme of things I know this is a minor irritant. But WTF is up with people crowding you at the cash register? Ran into the grocery store yesterday to pick up my traditional pork roast and kraut. In the check out line, I unloaded my husband bagged. The store was packed and we were trying to be as efficient as possible. The man behind me kept edging his cart up. To the point I could not access the credit/debit swipe unit. I very politely asked the gentleman to pull his cart back. His response? "You've got plenty of room". Umm no, I didn't so I hipped checked the cart to gain a few inches and swiped and typed. Death Stare from cart man the whole time. What is up with this behavior? I have experienced it more frequently in the past year. If I can't finish my transaction the cashier can't start yours! Are we all really so rushed we can't respect others? Rant over.
New year's to all my fellow ST'rs. I hope you all have a happy and joy filled year.
