Welcome back to another I wonder Wednesday where I will likely offend someone, lose a follower, make you laugh until you pee yourself or teach you some corrupt new word you didn’t know existed before today. All things aside just know that my I wonder Wednesday posts are honestly light hearted and in good fun.
Opinions are like assholes… Everyone's got one and everyone thinks everyone else's stinks. We all know the saying. Yesterday I came face to face with a real stinker!
I’ve been couponing lately. Saving loads of money. Stocking up on foods and brands we love. It’s been real fun. Until yesterday. See I went to a store that had a great sale going on for some of my kids favorite juices. They are normally $3.99 and with the sale and my coupons I could get them for $1.50 each. So I bought 16 of them since I had coupons for that many and I was sure they would expire before I found another deal this great on this juice. Here is the awesomeness I came home with today.
Since I am still fairly new to this no matter how prepared I think I am I always still seem to fall short of totally awesome when I get to the register. I am either forgetting coupons or got the item that doesn’t go on sale until tomorrow etc… Today I got to the register and forgot that I had not activated my new debit card yet and had to go all the way home to do it from my home phone! Ugh!
So now here I am back at the store with the stuff on the belt… A couple boxes of cereal, some pop tarts and my juice when I hear a grouchy voice from behind me… “Do you really think your family is gonna drink all that juice?”
I turn to look and confront the ill intentioned shopper to find this staring back at me…
It was like a sweet old lady without the sweet. In fact she was quite sour. Many many things immediately ran through my head as I searched for an appropriate response. Like this one that I am putting into my memory banks for next time “Not that it’s any of your business but these are being donated to a batter women's shelter to help women children of domestic violence”. Or another one that came to mind and may very well have slipped out had I not taken my meds today was “Do you really think you’ll be needing those lips to talk with? Because I just might remove them from your face”. And the last one was “I bet you wished you had some of this juice during the great depression didn’t you?”
In the end I replied ever so
you picked the wrong day to piss me off sweetly… I’m sure my children will have no problem polishing these off in no time. Not to mention I wont have to buy juice for a while.
But I really wanted to say something like “I bet if I had 16 boxes of tampons sitting here wouldn’t be asking if I thought I would actually use them all now would you?!!”
I wonder… why do people feel it’s their business to express their opinions about other peoples daily on goings? I wonder why this woman cared at all what I was purchasing and why she felt the need to vocalize it to me. I wonder why god didn’t make me deaf so I didn’t have to listen to stupid people.
What did you wonder about this week?
