So I run in and grab my 2 items. One is near the front. The other is in the back of the store. I weave thru the maze of Nike sweatshirts & Kirkland jeans in the middle (carts can’t fit.)
There’s 1 person ahead of me loading her things. Then a man comes with his cart & gets behind me.
He bumps me again.
I turn around. His wife says something to him in their language.
HE STEPS AROUND ME AND GETS IN FRONT OF ME.
He said “before you...after you. It don’t matter. Hahaha.” And goes back behind me. The lady in front of me glared at him & then looked at me like WTF? She gets her receipt & leaves.
Cashier stays out of it but hands me my receipt & is extra nice. “Thank you so much, Ms. Fox. You have a Merry Christmas.”
Mind you at this point, I’ve never seen the lady’s face cuz she was looking down.
And I’m thinking...I know that voice.
She goes “YESSSS?”
I’ve known this lady professionally for almost 25 years. She was my first headhunter. Like, she got me a job at Lotus in the late 90’s.
So maybe that clownery happened so I’d be delayed a few seconds & run into Barbara. The End.
