Even If It's Not Free, It's For Me

Why do people feel like they are entitled to something, anything, everything?

Case and point…  

I’m at the grocery on Saturday with my brother Dave.  He’s pushing the cart, and as he is old, could not keep up with my 45 year old svelte, young self.  Ha!

I’m going into the produce section for lettuce, and green onions.  Don’t ask.  There I came upon a woman and her daughter at the grapes.  

They’ve opened a bag, and proceeded to eat them.   Not tasting to see if they were sweet enough, just…plain…eating them.

My Mother, God rest her soul, would taste one, much to my embarrassment, and buy them if they were up to her standards.  Buy being the operative word.  

This woman didn’t buy a fucking grape; she just munched them like it was her motherfucking right!  Who does this shit?


And then...

I was told a story Saturday by the lovely, talented woman who runs the U-Scan at my local Kroger.  I heart her.

A man who comes in regularly, decides that the salad bar is a free for all.  

This dude is not putting fixings into a plastic container to pay for like he’s supposed to.  Oh no, he is fucking eating right off the salad bar!

The produce manager comes out, and says, “You can’t do that."  


This dude says, and I quote from the lovely, talented woman...

“Why not, you young whippersnapper?  I’ll kick your fucking ass.”

Really?  WTF!

Why do some people think they are entitled to do whatever they want?

I was very vocal about the grape woman.  She paid no mind, of course.

What the hell is wrong with people?  Am I just noticing this shit as I get older?  Has this been going on all along, and I didn’t care?

More than likely, but still I say, what the ever loving fuck!

Thank God I wasn’t at Walmart.  The smell alone keeps me away from that place.

Zooooves!!

I see all kinds of entitlement infractions on a daily basis. My biggest peeve? People who are clearly not handicapped and have no handicap tag on their vehicle, but still feel free to park in the handicap spaces.

This is why I carry a camera in my hand bag all the time. Imma be at the Mart later on. Who knows what I may witness? LOL.

I'm struck speechless when I see these things and my job is to catch the "entitled" from stealing from their employers so I'm struck speechless several times a day.

Beth said...

Chick: Oh Wow! I'd love to have a job like that. Except I'd probably get fired for tackling stupid assholes!

I hate the "Jump on the band-wagon" thang, but I FUCKIN agree with sybil law - I HATE PEOPLE, too. Just the other day I was in Pathmark - I know, please don't shoot me. That place is disgusting. Why I shop there is a mystery. Convenience. Anywho, I was in the produce section to purchase fruit for my altar. I ran across some delcious looking cheeries and decided to taste one (operative words are TASTE ONE) to see if they were sweet and worth buying. Sure enough they were. I picked up the bag I had tasted from and purchased it. This type of shit has been going on for a long time, Beth. I've been noticed the foul shit people do. It ain't only cheeries, grapes. Cookies, potatoe chips, soda. I have come across all kind of foodstuff opened on shelves. I'm waiting for the day to walk over to the frozen food asile, open up the door and find that someone has eaten a 1/2 gallon of ice cream and left the container in the freezer. Now that would be some funny shit. Cheers B!!

Beth said...

Bobby: I know it has,but I guess it still amazes me that there are people out there like this. I mean Jesus Christ on a cross! I'm checking the ice cream this week. I really don't think it would suprise me if I found a half empty one. My e-mail is over on the right, please explain about this altar?

It is stealing but they know no shame....

Beth said...

David: No kidding. Of course, they don't see it that way.
