At first this made me mad, but then I had to laugh

at the woman with four turkeys who decided to make a dash for it. Here's the scoop. After work I had some errands to run. And the on the way home I had to stop at the store because my doggies were out of food and treats. So I am wheeling around in the crazy, crowded store searching for the last minute stuff I am thinking about making for work potlucks, home, etc. Well, as I am going down one aisle there was a woman with two kids. Even though I am not a mom I understand those kids get hyped up in the stores and you could tell she was trying to calm them down. So I waited without making a big deal since she blocked the end of the aisle. Mind you I needed to also use the restroom, but every single one was in use....so I waited. All of a sudden I heard this cart wheeling like a madman behind me. Just as I glanced over there was an older (but still had life in her people LOL I'd say middle aged) woman passing me on the left as the mom and kids started to move on at that point. I know the middle aged woman knew what I was thinking because she kept sneaking a glance at me as she passed me. I started laughing so hard not because of how rude she was, but because the way her face looked....like she was pulling something over on someone. Well, needless to say we both got to the check out at the same time and I got out first. Well, I took it as a sign from God to donate a $1.00 to the Salvation Army pot out front. ANd I did. I vowed last year that every time someone did something rude that would make me mad I would intentionally do something good for someone else to even things out in the universe....In other words I do good deeds all the time. So what do you find the most frustrating when you are shopping?

Oh, I hate people who block the aisles and think nothing about it. Even the vendors and employees do it. It's difficult enough to keep track of my kids without having to try and get around all those hurdles. Oh, and the lady at the deli. She must be in her late seventies. She is slow as molasses. To get a pound of anything cut takes 15 minutes. I'm not kidding. The line forms, but they hardly ever have a second person come and help her. I have started to just grab the already cut stuff they pack in the refrigerated sections. It's the same stuff anyway.

When we lived in Florida we would go to Dog-Mart (Wal-Mart), my pet name for them, and island families would go shopping together, all 33 of them, they would hog the aisle and don't even think about getting through them, it was kind of a rude thing to do but it was how they shopped.
