Belting Out The Ironies

, , , , | Right | October 22, 2020

I am in line at a small neighbourhood supermarket. There is one person in front of me who hasn’t finished loading their groceries onto the conveyor belt yet, so I am patiently waiting to put my own on there. It’s a very small belt, and I only have a small basket with a few items anyway.

Suddenly, a woman behind me physically shoves her way in between me and the belt and starts loading her own groceries. I am so gobsmacked that I say nothing at all; I also have severe social anxiety and couldn’t speak up if I wanted to!

The guy serving also says nothing and just lets it happen.

He finishes serving the woman, and you would think that would be the end of it, but instead, she suddenly says in a haughty voice:

Woman: “Some people just have no idea how to queue efficiently in here, do they?”

And off she flounced, legitimately proud of herself for successfully pushing in front of me.
