Filthy Line Skippers!

alright, i'm fricking pissed off and since you're here i figure you wanna hear about it so here it is!

i hate bloody line skippers. they're all filthy animals and must die. it's a concept i'm sure you're all familiar with so i'll just skip the explanation and give you two different examples, both happened to me in the same night.

well, i'm sick as a dog and need medicine. so i order it up and wait the necessary hour before trekking out to the pharmacy. on the way, as i'm driving down the street, a minivan comes out of the driveway of a parking lot not 20 feet from where i'm going around 50km/h. now, normally when people are that impatient they will go quickly because they obviously have somewhere to go that's more effing important than my destination.! the driver of the van proceeds to drive somewhere between 20-30km/h (yes, parkling lot speed), thus forcing me to slam on the brake just so i don't fuse our 2 vehicles in a collision.

then, i'm at the pharmacy. we all know how those lines can be! so i wait my turn. now, there is a bit of a problem processing my drug card so it takes a couple of minutes. but while i'm standing there, this lady strolls up to the counter with a basket full of groceries and proceeds to put her basket down on the counter. then, she stands there, looking around impatiently. then, after pacing a bit and trying to ignore my glaring, she goes to the "drop prescription off here" window. alright, so she's gone. then, she comes back!!! and she just stands there until someone comes to ask her what she wants. no, there aren't 2 tils at the pharmacy counter. there's just one, and it's the one that i already have occupied. so she gets her prescription, then pays and leaves before i even see mine!

now, while she was talking to the person at the counter, i happened to overhear why she thought she had an excuse to skip the line. she had a week old grandchild who was sick at home. awwwww, blah blah bluh blah...


she was, of course, fortunate because all the people who happened to be working in the pharmacy that night were all women. soft hearted, sympathetic/empathetic women! all of them blubbering about the poor 1 week old baby. no, i don't group all women that way but face it; the ratio of soft hearted women to soft hearted men has to be, what, 25:1? so, what, that baby will certainly die if the woman has to wait 5 minutes for her prescription (she also bought canesten...i suppose the baby has a yeast infection too?). then, after the woman pays for and receives her items, she slowly saunters away...humming! HUMMING!!!

i hate all you filthy effing line skippers! you're a plague of society! d'ugh, if i go on any more i'm gonna curse for real and most people who stop by won't want to read that.

I've come to the conclusion that I don't laugh nearly enough. Please, keep posting! I hate to take comfort in other peoples misfortunes, but yeah, your stories were very humourous. I especially found them funny because I think we've all been there. I found the congruency between your previous post and this one interesting.

Take some comfort in knowing that not every 'cutter' gets what's best... and most often we will spend time waiting for what's coming to us.

Its a sad world when our communication exists of blogs, and emails, and phone calls at lunch breaks.
I am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience last night. I wish you feel better soon. I had fun at the spongee game, and at the party last night. wish you were there.
Love you.

Information that likely you don't care about, but none the less, I'm all about educating men! Canesten is used on baby's bums when their diaper rash turns into a yeast infection, which is very common when the rash lasts beyond several days ... used it on "A" when he was a baby, it worked like a charm!

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well. Hope you're better soon.

well, johnny, dear, once again you have failed to let us all know exactly how you feel. You need to be more open and succint!

Hahahaha! I'm sorry but I, too, had a real bad laugh attack. You just slay me and that's all there is to it! : )

yeah, some people have nerve. but, of course, if one of us was to try and put them in their place, we would be the bad guy.

yeah, fargo should be long as the weather cooperates.

Sometimes you just need to punch people in the back of the head.
