||Shoppers at a local Hannaford Supermarket
could only imagine that the 42-year-old
||woman angrily demanding a price check
on package of rice pudding was more than
||likely was a buoyant and carefree youth
too easy going to barade a cashier over
||a 4 ounce snack cup.
No, no, no the 6 pack is 3.29 not 4.29,
||run the two again, okay this is unacceptable.
Every time I come to the store there
||is something wrong and I am sick of it.
I am sick of it.
||Sources speculated that the vicious tantrum
would have been unthinkable to the
||woman during her early 20's when here
eyes probably gleamed with the fire of hope
||unencumbered by responsibility, fear or regret.
She was probably just some free willing
||college kid you know.
Her biggest concern was which one of her
||friends she was going to hang out with at
night and whether they were going to meet
||at the movies or a bonfire on the beach.
||Now look at her.
You know I bet if you told her 10 or 15
||years ago that one day she would be ripping
into a grocery store clerk with
||a room full of strangers staring at
her, she would have been horrified.
||It is sad.
It is pretty sad.
||I have the circular right here and
it says 3.29, okay, right there.
||Onlookers said that very deep within the
world weary woman was likely a girl that
||drove a hundred miles in an open back jeep
and stood in line for concert tickets all
||before being slowly beaten into submission
by the stresses of getting older,
||raising a child and sacrificing her
career goals for her husband.
||I don't care what it says on your screen.
||You know this is why people go to the
store across the street because of the way
||they are treated here.
You know nobody likes it here.
||It really makes you stop and appreciate
the youth you have been granted because
||one day you wake up your life is half over
||and you are verbally assaulting a cashier
over the price of rice pudding while
||wearing sweat pants in public.
You are all just a bunch of incompetent
||imbeciles and I want to speak to the manager.
I can tell you right now that will never
||be me. That will never be me.
