So yesterday I run to Costco.
Let's go back and review...Sunday, I ran to the grocery store (see previous post) and had an awful experience with the irate man behind me in line and a surly cashier. Out of nowhere, there was an attack. I was dumbfounded as to why, and frustrated with my own responses. I had talked to BF about the incident, and he simply said, "you should have kicked him in the balls," and say something that included MF. Well that's BF for ya...
BF and I are opposites, as you know, he's far right and I'm left of left. He starts his day with Fox News and I start mine with meditation.
So I'm shopping at Costco. I've got a loaded cart and working my way back to the front of the store. OMG...they're sampling a cheesecake crisp!!! I'm dieting, so I normally don't take even the tiniest of samples, but cheesecake????
I waited, but the lady said it would be a second, so I dashed off for coffee and returned only to have the samples given to the people that had remained in line. No problem, she said to hang in there a second and she'd get my piece ready. As she worked, we visited.
My piece was ready and she slid it on the tray for me ... and, just as she did this, a Costco worker, a tiny, short, feeble but cranky looking old lady, snatched my sample. She maneuvered between the worker and me and snatched my piece. She looked at me with hard, cold and, I think defiant eyes...as if daring me to challenge her eyes, and walked off remarking that the sampler will fix me another piece.
The sample lady and I both looked at each other...dumbfounded!
Again, I was left with my eyelids batting... The sample lady said, "that was the rudest thing she's seen in a long time." I burst out laughing and thinking, that what you resist, persists...
I got it right this time! I didn't get upset, I did it right!
With this in mind, I later told BF about the incident and made a comment that "kicking the offender in the balls" wouldn't have worked. That by not responding with anger, or feeling upset worked! I asked him, now...in this case, what do you think I should have done to this lady?
His response...OMG...he said that I should have reached out and tweaked her on the boob!
I'm laughing now, but can you imagine??? I can just "see" myself posting on how I'd been in jail for several days, on some kind of sexual harassment or assault charge. Can you just imagine how it would be reported in the news? Two elderly ladies.....
