Today's lesson is: Wait your turn!
Was in the self-checkout section in
Meijer ringing up my stuff and some white girl runs up on me with money
and some item in her hands talking about, "Hey, if you ring this up, can
I pay you for it?"....Excuse you? The heck I look like, a peasant? Do I
look money-hungry because I'm black and have a turban on? I don't need
your measily and impatient dollar bills, boo! Or do I just seem like a
nice person who would do it for you if you asked?
Look, I get that no
one likes lines and everyone has places to be, but why should you not
have to wait your turn like everyone else? You're in a grocery store in
the middle of a Saturday afternoon. If you don't feel like waiting,
pick another day or time! Don't insult people with your money. Most
importantly, learn to wait your turn!
