That Story Took A Turn

, , , , | Right | July 3, 2019

(I’m standing in line to pay at the supermarket. There is one customer in front of me, when suddenly an older woman starts putting her groceries in front of mine on the belt. She then turns to me and starts yelling at me:)

Old Woman: “Didn’t your parents ever teach you to respect your elders? You should’ve seen me coming and offered me your place in line. Now I have to take it myself. That’s just rude!”

(I’m just standing there, speechless. Meanwhile, the cashier is finished with the person who was originally in front of me and starts taking my purchases instead of the older woman’s.)

Old Woman: “What are you doing? Do you know how rude you’re being?! Haven’t your parents taught you respect?!”

Cashier: “Maybe not to your standards, but they did teach me to always wait my turn. Don’t worry; you can still learn that lesson.”
