I Know You Don’t Work Here, But Could You For Just A Sec?

, , , , , | Friendly | September 2, 2021

Halfway through my grocery shopping, I get to the spice aisle and find that the jar of cinnamon I need is pushed back on a high shelf out of my reach.

I turn to the closest man, easily a foot taller than me.

Me: “Excuse me, could you help me—”

Man: “I don’t work here.”

Me: “Oh, I know. I’m just hoping for some help—”

Man: “I don’t work here.”

Me: “I know. I just can’t—”

The man turns away from me, so I ask loudly:

Me: “Can you reach this cinnamon for me?!”

He turns and sees my issue and hangs his head.

Man: “Sorry.”

He easily snags a jar of cinnamon and hands it to me.

Me: “Thanks, man.”

I really was thankful, but he just slunk off.

Keep On Truckin’, Girl!

I’m taking a walk, going a little slow because I’m still recovering from an ankle injury, and I start crossing the street — admittedly jaywalking — right as a small convertible, roof down in the sunny weather, pulls up from a cross-street and gets ready to turn. A truck pulls up behind her after a few seconds and honks almost immediately, since she’s waiting for me, and I almost feel guilty about my slow pace until the young lady in her little car twists around to glare at him.

Lady: “There’s a pedestrian! Quit acting like an a**hole!”

Truck Driver: “Hey, watch your mouth! I could run right over you.”

Lady: “So, do it, then!”

The truck driver didn’t seem to know how to respond, and with a flip of her ponytail, the girl turned back and started moving, since I was finally out of the way.

I don’t usually enjoy road rage, but something about that young woman in her tiny car chewing him out without hesitation and calling his bluff just tickled me that day!
