What's the deal with letting people cut in front of you at the super market just because they have one item and you have 100??
Momlogic's Annie: We've all been there. Your kid is kicking their legs while sitting in your overflowing cart. You've been waiting on the line for what seems like an eternity. Then right when your order is about to be rung up, some chump walks up behind you with just a loaf of bread and gives you the look that asks, "Are you going to let me go before you? Or are you going to be a jerk?" Well, buddy? I think you suck for putting me in the position.
I worked a long day. I battled traffic and the clock to get home in time just so I can scramble to get my daughter ready to get out the door. I brought her here before dinner -- a mistake I make every few months thinking she (and I) can handle it. But, of course, she's too hungry to be looking at all this food. At this point I've fed her a whole sleeve of butter crackers. Dinner for her is now ruined.
I forgot the microwave popcorn but I cannot go get it because I can't leave my cart with my kid in it alone nor can I lose my place in line and bring my cart with me. My disappointment over my snack-free night is interrupted by my daughter biting and licking the grocery cart metal. Lovely.
So, how about a big fat "no" to you sir. I just cannot let you go before me. It may only be 30 extra seconds, but that half minute could decide whether or not I have a mental breakdown. I'm sorry that all you have is a loaf of bread, but there is such a thing as an express lane -- you should try it out. I am completely against the one item line cut! Until, of course, I go back later to get that popcorn I forgot and the woman in front of me has a cart full of groceries.
