Why is it that were ever i go i always run into at least one person who would best be described as filth. I'm not talking about the average cashier at wal-mart who hates his job and doesn't seem ecstatic to see you. I'm talking about the person just in front of you while you wait to be checked out. You stand there pretending not to listen to their conversation, but you and i both know your listening to them anyway. Not that it could be helped, these kind of people seem to project everything they say and do as if to display it for everyone in hopes of getting a small amount of attention. Once they finally get up to the counter to pay they pull out 100 coupons 90% of which are out dated and you stand there listening to them argue with the cashier. Or even better they pull out a food stamp card and slide it through the machine the wrong way, then argue with the cashier about how they know they did it correct the first time and that it just isn't working.
I had a run in with one of these people at work a few months back. Even now thinking about it fills me with disgust. Let me set the mood for you. I'm working at walmart all day, busting my ass for crap pay and managers who think im are their personal slave. About 2 hours before i get to go home this HUGE woman waddles in with her friend who is pretty large herself. As soon as i see that they are standing near the electric scooter i know its going to be a problem. As you all know wal-mart attracts obese people the same way crap attracts flies. Well because of this we never have enough electric scooters to go around. At this point in time there was one left, broken with a sign hanging on it saying not to use it. This huge women sits in it and tries to get it to move. Of course it goes no where, hence the sign. I just happen to be walking past her when she does this, she looks up at me and say "Can you please go check to see if there are any more of these that work! I cant walk around the store!" I tell her i just came from were we keep the other scooters and that there weren't any there, but i would go back and check again just for her. She doesn't say thank you or even acknowledge the fact that im a human being. She just says "Ok, hurry because i don't have alot of time." I go back the way i just came which is about a 3 minute walk at most. I look to see if there are any scooters and of course there are none, i stop and ask the door greater if she knows if there are any working ones not being used and she says no. I start to head back, dreading telling this women she will actually have to use her legs. I get about half way there and the women that came in with her stops me and says "Are you even looking for a scooter!?" I tell her i checked and that there weren't any. The women goes into a fit and storms off toward her friend she is still sitting in the broken scooter. Flustered i stand in awe at the fact this women is mad at me because they are to lazy to walk and head back the way i was going to begin with, thinking the matter is close. Just as i'm about to pass the two women the huge one calls out to me and tells me to go up and down the isle to find someone who doesn't need the scooter and ask them to give it up. Of course there is no way i can do this and i tell her so. The women freaks out and starts yelling about how awful customer service is and that wal-mart isn't accommodating enough for handy cap. At this point i get tired of dealing with her and tell her she either has to wait or she can go to another store and see it they have any scooters available. The women screams "Fine i will!" grabs a push cart and uses it to waddle out to her car. As she is doing this i'm thinking she is the worst excuse for a person i have ever met.
Its people like that, that cause me to lose faith in people as a whole.
