Random Thoughts and Bitches for 4/10/10

Today has been a day of reflection - don't ask me why. I have just been more aware of my surroundings lately. Maybe it is the concussion - it has opened up my sixth sense. Nah. People just piss me off.

I went to Walgreen's and bought exactly what was on my list (for each and every item I had a coupon) and I was sooo proud of myself. The cashier tells me my total "$20. 16". I am about to slide my card when I realize that can't be right. I mean I spent time and energy searching the paper and cutting out just the right coupons. $20.16 is just too much. So I look up and see my stack of coupons sitting neatly on the counter with the cashier's hand resting on top. Ah ha! So I ask, "Did you take off my coupons?" and she replied, "What coupons?"

WTF?!? - what coupons?!? The coupons I handed you that put in a neat pile UNDER YOUR FUCKING HAND. Of course I did not say that out loud (even though I wanted to). Instead I kindly said, "you know those pieces of papers under your hand with the pictures on them? Those coupons." She said, "Oh these" and then started scanning them.... yes. good. Dumb ass.

Then she tried to tell me that I couldn't use a Walgreen's ad coupon with a Manufacturer's Coupon. I said I could she said I couldn't (yes we did go back and forth a few times... I felt like I was talking to a 5 year old). I finally asked kindly (but less kindly than before) to speak to the manager. She said, "The manager will tell you what I am telling you"... really? So being the witty bitch that I am said "Let him tell me then."

Of course I was right (as I always am) and I ended up saving 13.00 off my purchase.

Then I go across the street to Sonic. MMM! I got my daily Dr.Pepper (well technically my 4th for the day but who's counting?) and my BF an Oreo Blast.

Now picture this. I am parked in the stall DIRECTLY outside the front door. The carhop, who is on skates, has to skate (slowly) around the lot to the wheelchair ramp for the patio and then skate back to my car.... wait. Something is terribly wrong with this picture!

I am pretty sure that the purpose of skating to deliver food is for speediness. But having to skate out of her way to deliver two drinks - well lets just say it wasn't that speedy. So I had to ask why she did it. She said she wore skates because another carhop told her she got more tips in skates, but that she doesn't really know how to skate that well (no shit). She smiled at me. I did not give her a tip. Normally I would - and maybe it makes me a bitch (although I am sure that isn't the only reason) - but I figure if she is too dumb to realize the reason the other girl got the tip was because she delivered food FASTER on the skates, then she was too dumb to spend my dollar wisely.

Although now looking back, maybe she could've spent my dollar on skating lessons!

    I'm so jealous that you can use coupons and shop at Walgreens. I'm not jealous, however, that you had to deal with a stupid cashier.

    I used to work at Target (I hired and trained people for them)... so whenever a cashier tells me something I cannot do I just refer them to the exact page in their training manual. And I am sure, that deep down inside they love when I come in to shop there :-)
