These people just make me want to scream! You know the kind of people I’m talking about, right? The kind of people who can’t keep their thoughts to themselves, and feel they have to speak up at innappropriate times. Example? Glad you asked.
- I am in a bookstore in a crowded mall. There are several people waiting in the checkout line, and only one employee is manning the register (with three empty, unmanned register). Now it is obvious that they were understaffed, so it is only decent for everybody in line to have a little patience. Well, that was too much to ask for this one old bat in line. She gets her turn at the register and asks the employee “Why do you have all of these empty registers?” He calmly explains that they are understaffed and that he has called to the front for help. She then turns around and yells to the entire store “Can we get some help over here?!?” After this outburst, she asks to speak to the manager. The employee informs her that he has already asked for the manager to come back and help him ring out customers. After this she finally shuts up. I just wanted to smack her!
I could mention many more, but I think you see where I am going. Anybody else feel like this? Feel free to add your horror stories here.
