The Very Picture Of Ignorance

| USA | Bizarre, Family & Kids, Food & Drink

(My mother’s never worked in customer service, so she is sometimes rude without meaning to. She has a photography hobby, and lately she’s been taking pictures of people without asking first. We’re at the drive thru getting food when she suddenly pulls out her camera.)

Me: “Mom, don’t—”

Mom: *click*

Cashier: *blinded by the flash*

Me: *to cashier* “Um, I’m sorry about that. Mom, you’re supposed to ask first, not just take a picture!”

Mom: “It’s okay. People love to get pictures taken of them! I’m like a paparazzi! They feel like celebs!”

Me: “No, they don’t. It’s rude!”

Cashier: *rubbing eyes* “Here’s your food.” *hands over food*

(My mom drove off without an apology and I saw, in the rearview mirror, the poor cashier still rubbing his eyes. Sorry, poor cashier!)
