Hello lovelies, welcome back to my page. So today I was out shopping with my daughters at the local shopping centre near my house, I don’t particularly enjoy shopping it’s more of a needs must type of trip for me I don’t enjoy the pushy people and the crowds of people walking around me I’d much rather just shop online. As I was walking through the shopping centre I was casually watching the thousands of people walking by, getting served at the checkout and eating in McDonald’s among other places to eat.
It occurred to me ‘some people are really just assholes!!’
For instance we were walking through the centre by the shops and there were lots of people who were out walking with their young children in prams or with toddlers walking along with them quite the thing and I noticed one woman really struggling to get control of her toddler (who was laying on the floor having a tantrum) and trying to push a very young baby into a shop and couldn’t get through the big heavy door.
Now there was a good 20 odd people walked straight by her, just staring at her or shaking their head in disgust like she had done something wrong and I thought “what are they doing?” I rushed over and asked if I could help and she graciously let me take the pram and we got the three of them into the shop through the doors she was stuck at. She then thanked me over and over again and I said it’s no problem we’ve all been there (well I know I have).
What got me is why these assholes thought they were better than her? Why shake their head or just walk by seeing her struggle and just ignore it like she wasn’t there. Is it not drummed into us as children that we should help others in need because I know that’s exactly what my parents taught me. I couldn’t just walk by I had to take those two seconds and stop ask if she would like help, there’s no need to be an asshole!!
We then got to the local Asda (large supermarket) we walked around the shop and got our food shopping with lots of people pushing by and being down right rude, I just shook this off everyone is allowed a bad day clearly this was their day! But when we got to the checkout we had a trolley full of food shopping and an older gentleman who I’d say was at least in his 70s came up behind us with only two things, at this point my THIRTEEN year old daughter stopped putting things on the belt and asked the older gentleman if he wanted to go in front of us as he only had a couple of items which in our family is normal that’s just showing respect.
As the gentleman put his items on the belt he got a little confused and put his stuff in front of the gentleman before us who was in his 50s now this gentleman got really angry and picked up the older gentleman’s items and said “eh that’s my stuff” in a really rude way. I just stood there in complete shock I couldn’t understand why this gentlemen had to be so rude and disrespectful there was no need at all. Another asshole!
The woman who was serving at the checkout was just as bad the gentleman got his stuff thrown at him, not asked if he needed a carrier for his items and as soon as he paid she basically ignored him and started pushing my items through. I had to stop her get the gentleman a carrier help him with his items and make sure he was ok which he was and he kept thanking me.
What is the deal today is everyone just out to be an asshole??!!
What really gets me is the younger generation disrespecting our older generation, if it wasn’t for them we wouldn’t have what we have now it’s like they turn a certain age and people just can’t be bothered with them anymore and it really does get to me. My grandad is 85 years old he does get a little confused sometimes or goes a little slower than us young people but he’s had a hard life he’s 85 and of course he’s not going to be bouncing around like he did in his 20s this does not give other people the right to treat him or any other older person like a piece of shit!
That is my rant for the day people can really be assholes and there’s no need for it whatsoever!!
Is it just me who’s noticed this? Has anyone else been in the same situation?
