We only went in to pick up a few things. Some new sheets since my daughter, Brenda just moved in with me, and a few cans of Dinty Moore.
But as usual, things got a bit out of control. It’s just such a good store and I kept finding so many things I could use or wanted. I mean Oreo’s for $1.87 a pack?! I had to have at least three of ‘em.
Our cart was full by the time we pushed it up to the check out. But then Brenda kept finding more stuff by the entrance. And she was right, such a deal on those plastic lawn chairs.
For some reason the cashier was taking a long time to ring everything up. I’m not sure why she couldn’t speed it up. And behind us I could see HER – the young lady, with just a few things in her hand. She was glaring at our pile of purchases and snickering to the man behind her with her Coach purse on her shoulder. I’m sure she paid way too much for that bag.
I know she didn’t like that we had so much stuff. I’m guessing she was in a hurry to go pick up her snotty little brats at private school or something. I saw her checking the time on her Nokia. Her mouth opened a little as Brenda loaded another item on the counter.
It was kinda funny. I took a little extra time writing my check partly because that girl pissed me off a little and also because I forgot my readers in the car. And then it was like the check-out girl didn’t even know what to do with a real check.
I’m sure that girl was so glad when we were finally done and paid up. And then I saw her drive off before we could even get all of our stuff in my little car. She practically ran to hers.
I hope she was late.
So…. I’m “that girl”, by the way… I took this OLD post (which is kinda funny, reading it back) that I wrote about some ladies checking out in front of me at Big Lots and gave the perspective of one of them instead of my own. Here is part of the prompt that got me here: Find something that you’re proud of, but something you haven’t read for awhile. Do a complete overhaul. Change the point of view. Write it from a different perspective….
