In which i wanted my froyo



I wasn’t actually going to write a post right this minute but this particular thing SO annoys be that I’ve decided to vent.


Here’s what I HATE:


You walk into the frozen yogurt store (well, at least I do) and there are a number of people in front of you.  Now this is one of those “do it yourself” places that are all the rage right now.


So you take your cup and put your froyo in it and then you go to the “toppings” station.  In this case, I was going to get berries as I was having my froyo for lunch, but in any case, there were people in front of me but nobody behind me.


First I waited while the mother of a small child got her yogurt, all the while the kid was pointing at this and that as apparently she wanted all the toppings.  I have no problem with this for the most part although I could have easily gotten my berries if the woman had just moved the kid out of my way.


So I get my stuff and here it comes, this is where I get pissed off.  You see, this woman was part of a larger group, a much larger group.  I, as an individual, obviously only had one yogurt but of course the first member of this groups puts her yogurt on the scale as soon as she’s ready.


Meanwhile, I too am ready but guess what?  That’s right, the other members of the group weren’t ready yet.


I’ve been in this situation before, both as the person with a group and as the individual and let me tell you, I always let the single person go through.  I do this at the yogurt store, I do this at the grocery store, I do this everywhere.  If you have a large checkout and there’s a single behind you without much stuff to check out you LET HIM OR HER GO FIRST.


So, I’m looking at this woman who’s literally just waiting for the rest of her party to finish making their yogurts.  They’re not even done making them yet!


Finally, the group gets all the yogurts on the scale and now it’s time for them to pay.  Does the woman have her wallet out? No, she doesn’t.  She’s had all this time to prepare and I’m pretty damn sure she knew she’d have to pay but she has to hunt through her pocketbook to find her wallet.


As she gets the wallet out the total is 10:13.  She has a twenty, of course she does.  Not only that but she doesn’t want change so now she has to hunt for the proper change.  Am I getting antsy? YES, I most certainly am.  Finally the lady locates a quarter and they pay.


Does this mean that she immediately takes the yogurts of the scale? You would think it does but apparently, the next decision, the decision on WHAT COLOR SPOON to get is even more important so the entire party shifts their focus that way.


When they turn back around the lady glances at me and says “oh, I’m sorry” and then I kill her.


Actually, I didn’t but I was pissed.  I was pissed because I could have ordered another 2000 yogurts by this time.  I had my money out and was all ready to go and eat my splendid half melted meal.


So people, have a little common courtesy.  If you’re with a big party and you can let the cranky lady with the frizzy hair through in front of you, you should probably do so.


Just saying …

    I always let people with frizzy hair go in front of me. I don’t trust them.

    Lynn — I’m with you on this one. This is an example of why you should always carry your crossbow. And also for people who stop for schoolbuses when it is totally unnecessary.

    Editor’s note: It should read,”She has to hunt through her PURSE to find her wallet.”
    Just last evening I offered to let the man with only a gallon of milk check out in front of me. He was so shocked I was afraid he was going to have a stroke. Manners and simple courtesy are dying skills.

    People like that should be stabbed with a yogurt spoon. In case the cross bow seemed like overkill.

    This is right up there with the dolts that are at the back of the checkout line and run over to the cashier who is just opening up instead of letting the person who is next in line at the big lineup go to the new cashier. Or, the cashier who actually serves that lame-ass that ran over there, instead of saying in a loud voice “Can I serve the NEXT person waiting in line” instead of the LAST person who has been waiting the least amount of time.

        Damn. Guess that ruins any chance of a guest blog, huh? Uhhhh…by “dolts” I meant only those with more than 5 items. And by “lame-ass” I meant only those who didn’t write blogs about froyo…yeah, yeah. That’s it. That’s what I meant.
