So, I'm in the grocery store yesterday. Same store I go to every week. Minding my own business. Trying to make the most of my time so I can do all the errands I need to do, get home, unload all the grocery goodness, start a load of laundry, think about dinner, and maybe get a nap before everyone gets home. (Hey, I can dream, can't I?)
As I was checking out, and watching my grocery total climb steadily, the clerk started to giggle. I looked at her questioningly, wondering what was so funny.
"You always look so mean when you come in here every week." she said, between chuckles.
"Excuse me?" I gaped, hardly believing what I was hearing.
"I mean, I'm sure you're a very nice person but you always look so mean when you're shopping." she explained.
"Well, I don't think I'm mean. I'm just trying to get lots done and I'm concentrating on what I'm doing." (That's what I said. "What the heck is your problem? Leave me alone and let me shop." is what I was thinking)
She was clearly embarrassed but, at that point, the damage was done.
What the heck was that??? I'm not sure if I was offended because she was right or because she was being so rude stating it out loud. Sheesh...........
