What is it with people and licking their fingers?! That's also a very common thing I seem to see in older generations, licking their fingers to more easily grip pages... it's unsanitary and 100% unnecessary...Today tried my patience for the stupidity of humanity.
I went grocery shopping. While standing in line, I watched the woman ahead of me in horror. Not only was she wearing her mask like a false mustache (it only covered her upper lip), she was also licking her fingers to help open the plastic bags used to bag groceries. She did this at least a half dozen times before using the same fingers to punch in her PIN to pay for her groceries.
I was never so glad to wear latex gloves as I was this morning.
Avoid shopping if at all possible. I mainly do a mixture of restaurant delivery and ordering shelf stable stuff. Since March I have done two regular grocery deliveries but that is mostly to have some variety.I went grocery shopping Saturday. For some reason, maybe because it was the weekend, most people were not paying any attention to the arrows on the floor, and dawdling over they're directions besides. After having my progress impeded in several aisles, all I could think of was "get me the hell out of here". I stopped by customer service to tell them because several of the arrows were worn and hard to read. The very young man there said he'd pass it along. I saw an older employee who looked like they might have more authority, and I told them too.
I should mention my anxiety attack was well underway at this point. The man could see that and asked if I wanted to talk to the boss. I had ice cream i my cart, so I thanked him and passed. It's enough that the boss got told. The cashier was worried about me, too. Once an anxiety attack starts it kinda had to run its course.
Anyway, note to self: avoid shopping on weekends if at all possible.
We've been doing deliveries also. It's been interesting and a bit of a mixed bag. The store does not always have what they show on the web site and sometimes our shopper does some creative substitution. Some substitution has been great because it's given me a chance to try new things, others, well, not so much. LOLAvoid shopping if at all possible.
