The first was just today, in the register line at a supermarket.
I was buying something, just waiting for my change back and two ladies behind me, with their things on the belt and the ‘Register Is Closed’ sign behind the last lady’s items. Of course, another lady comes up and puts something onto the belt, despite the RIC sign flat in her face.
Cashier tells her to please not put any more items onto the belt. This lady rolls her eyes, like it’s the biggest inconvenience to her, to go the two steps aside, where the next and open register was.
Like, aside from not seeing the sign (or blatantly ignoring it), her gestures act like using another line will destroy her whole day’s plans.
There was a group of three pre-teen/young-teen girls, sitting at the table close to the entrance. And they were loud.
I mean it, it felt and sounded like watching monkeys in the zoo. (I would say, we are descended from apes and associate them with said apes, but… these girls were monkeys.) They laughed and giggled over nothing at a high volume.
I was waiting for my order and realized this must’ve been going on for quite some time, because the woman behind the register (I somewhat know her, she often takes my order) mutters loudly to her co-worker, “I’m gonna go over there and put a stop to this.”
I left with my order less than a minute later and the girls were still loud… I was thinking of saying something myself, but then that would likely have resulted in a screaming match. (And I’m sure having a decade worth of more practice with my voice than those girls, and a bigger lung-volume, I would’ve won.)
Poor workers at McD. I wonder if the girls even realized how obnoxiously loud they were.
