Lesson: Wait in Line

I’m waiting on a guy when some woman appears out of nowhere at the second register and demands to be waited on. I told her that I couldn’t because the other customer was there first. It wasn’t a busy day and it wouldn’t have been long at all.

He turns and goes, “What? You can’t wait or something? What makes you special?”

And she goes, “I’m sorry, I’m just in pain.”

Seeing that a fight might escalate here, I called a coworker to help me even though I didn’t need it.

After I rang out the guy he turned and told her, “see that took a whole thirty seconds.” He promptly left the store.

She turned to me after being rung out and said, “I’m sorry.” I shrugged my shoulders at her. I mean really, you might be in pain. But, who was to say he wasn’t? What makes you so special that you need to be waited on before anyone else? Nothing. No empathy.

This is partly why I’m changing programs to Computer Science. I’d much rather work with machines than the public anymore.
