    She puts her groceries out. Hands clerk a stack of coupons. Oh no, there's a problem with a coupon, do you have your newspaper mailer I can look through. Oh, there it is, yes, can you scan that one instead? Great. Oh this one too. 45 minutes later the clerk says, "$57.83". Mexican is confused. What? "$57.83" Oh, waking up. Shocked. Startled. You can see the wheels turning in her brain: "I'm suppose to do something now". Huge purse finally comes off shoulder. She opens it. Digging. Digging. More digging. Oh, here it is. Giant wallet comes out. Where is it? I know it's in here somewhere. There it is. Got it. Hands the clerk her welfare debit card and finally, finally leaves.

    What was so fascinating about this experience was observing her having absolutely no awareness that this pending transaction would eventually evolve to where a payment from her would be required. No anticipation. No concept that perhaps she should have her wallet and method of payment out prior to the clerk asking their strange and mysterious request.

    Just about always fat....disheveled....unaware of any need to show decency towards others around them...often surrounded by a swarm of neglected keeds

    I so hate that when it happens.. Or when they pull out this big pile of change expecting the cashier to count it for them.

    I see this across the whole society. Milfs on the phone who wait until it's rang up to get out their card. Old people who pull out their checkbook after it is totaled. What really gets me are the people who carry cash only and have big bills. They get their total and then shuffle their bills around. Then they hand the clerk a bill and look at her to see if it is enough. Then you have the ass wipes that separate their groceries into two piles and pay for each pile separately. I think they ought to have to go to the back of the line after the first transaction if they want to pay twice.

    Rage. Every place that has an express line should specify, as well ,that cash and cards only accepted for payment.

    I got attitude in the grocery store from some lady while I was checking out in "self checkout" line. She didn't appreciate That I was packing up my stuff so the other items coming down the conveyor belt wouldn't crush it. She was huffing, puffing, and acting like a fool.


    I don't like getting attitude. :mad:

    You have to stop and ask her, "Is there a problem?" She'll hemhaw around and say no.

    I think sometimes it's more powerful to act oblivious.

    I can just vent about it here! :c

    I think OP is a liar. I've never seen a Mexican woman in the store alone... They have to have their husband, maybe a sister or neighbor, and at least 5 kids, all walking astride, so they can take up the whole aisle, and squealing and jabbering away in Mexican talk... And they know quite well how to use the LoneStarCard.....
