The Impatient Idiot at Waldbaums

So I'm on my 1/2 hour lunch break and I go to Waldbaums. After getting a sandwich, a snack, and a drink, I get in the self-checkout line. I happen to see my sister in one line and a customer of mine in another (my witnesses). So now it’s my turn. I scan my items and hit the pay button. A lady begins getting nasty with me demanding, "Do you think you could move your stuff?"

I answered with a raise brow, "I have to pay first."

She yells back to me, "Well, ya think you could move your stuff so I can start scanning?"

Speaking slowly so this idiot understands, I reply, "I can't remove my stuff until I pay. And you can't scan 'til I move my stuff."

She huffs in anger and goes to a cashier line embarrassed by her stupidity. My sister, my customer, and I look at each other. "My god, what an idiot", one of them replies. "Doesn't she think how long we've been waiting?" Says another.

It’s great to have witnesses to this kind of stupidity.


Where's the Kinko's?

Someone comes into my store asking some questions like where to eat, and how to get around. "Is there a Kinko's around here?" she asks.

"No." I reply. Hearing about this place but not remembering what service the place provides I ask, "What is a Kinko's?" hoping to be able to provide her with similar service. My co-workers all say, "Yeah, what is a Kinko's?"

Shocked by our lack of knowledge of this service provider she says, "WHAT? You don't know what a Kinko's is? How cute!!!!" She goes on saying someting..small town..coutry..isolated..

I swear if I weren't working I would have asked/said things like "Oh you've never been to a beach? Never seen snow? Seen real wild whales? Had a LI iced tea?"

You get the idea. How rude!!!
