Life is like a box of The People Behind My Eyes

What? Argh! I’m just here to shop

I was at the store and a lady asked me what was wrong. I told her I have Lupus. She kept ringing me up. I was wearing headphones which is a clue that I don’t want to talk, but it didn’t work that way.

Cashier – Did you break your back?
Me. I have Lupus
(silence)
Cashier – That hurts, doesn’t it?
Me – Oh yeah.
Cashier – When’s the last time you had sex?

Of course this shocked me because I don’t know this woman from Adam so I turned my head to the left….confused….then to the right….confused. I put my hand over my mouth in shock, head still going left then right trying to wrap my brain around this question from a total stranger.  After a long silence I said,, “Um, wow.” Then with all the irritation I could muster and a deep sigh I said,

Really? Seriously? (deep sigh)….please, just ring me up before I fall over…
Cashier – You looked like you were in a lot of pain the last time you were here. Are you better now?

I wasn’t in the chair at the time. All I wanted was to go in, get a few things and leave, but it never fails, someone always says something crazy. … Not always…….. at Kroger no one said anything out of line, but several totally ignored the headphones statement.

After the selfie, yes, I did get sausage on sale

When a person is wearing headphones it means they don’t want to interact. My reason for not wanting to interact is because it’s a toss up. You may be stupid. I won’t know that until you open your mouth. I’m not a big risk taker, ya know. I’ve played the lottery once in my life. I won $2, took the money and went home. I’m not a risk taker so I try my best to avoid living things when I’m grocery shopping. The general public can’t be trusted so yeah, the headphones are a sign that I don’t want to talk to you!

Note to the sweet lady with whom I chose beef cuts – You were so delightful. I’m happy you ignored the headphones and chatted with me. 🙂 We will both enjoy a nice piece of beef, and we both agree that cats should not eat hot dogs.

Like I said, people talk to me about allllll sorts of stuff, including feeding their cat hot dogs. That’s a no-no.

No need to feel nervous, comment if you'd like.
