Last night I went about my most dreaded chore. It makes me think I would not make a good housewife at all. Anyway I really hate grocery shopping. My husband volunteered to do the grocery shopping for us. Yesterday however he was out and the shopping could not be postponed so I took the bullet and went to the store.
Upon setting foot into the darn store I realized why I hate it with such passion. People seem to have lost their manners. Would it kill you to say “excuse me” when you push your sweaty body in front of me, blocking my view or when you reach past me??? Would it kill you to move yourself and your cart to the side to catch up with your neighbor that you happened to meet while shopping??? Would it kill you to keep on walking to the side instead of stopping dead in your tracks in the middle of the freakin’ aisle??? And would you please stop complaining about the fact that I rammed my cart into your heel as a result of you coming to a sudden halt??? I did apologize.
After a long day it would be nice to see some courtesy. Do men actually ever hold a door open anymore? I know men in work do but outside of work everyone just seems to have turned into selfish monkeys.
People behave as though they are “the only person in the world” but I assure you, you are not. I am not interested to listening to your music on your iPod blaring through your headphones nor do I enjoy being sprinkled by your make-up when you powder your face on the train? You can’t get up five minutes earlier to put the make-up on in the comfort of your own home? We all have to watch you layering your make-up on?
Kids today don’t even bother to get up when they see an elderly person or a pregnant lady getting on the train anymore. Is it because they are brats or because their parents never bothered to teach them?
Anyway, it took me a good 45 minutes to get my shopping done and I couldn’t wait to leave this hellhole. I get passive-aggressive and one day…well I am afraid that one day I am going to lose it.
Anyone else think that manners are not up to date anymore in today’s world?
