I'll never understand people, I think. If you have only one thing and there are multiple lanes open, including four self checkouts, why would you pick to stand behind the one person that has a full buggy? If he'd come up behind us BEFORE we started ringing, I probably would let him go through to be polite. But the cashier had already started ringing us up when he came up with one jar of salsa and took a look at our overflowing buggy and just went "Really?"
Which... I didn't think much of, honestly. Our family has two grown men and two growing kids and we're doing our shopping for the week. We go through a LOT of food! I get it, I wouldn't want to stand behind us either.
But I'd have gone to look for a different line. And instead he just stood there behind us, staring, while he occasionally banged on the counter with his jar of salsa. Which then turned into him letting out these loud grunts that sounded like a dying donkey. I was trying to ignore it because I had the girls with me and I didn't want to make a scene. Well, more of a scene than he was already making.
...Meanwhile Laurel is definitely Amycus' daughter, because she finally turned around and looked at him and said "You're rude!"
And that's when I lost it. Because as much as I was trying to hold onto my composure and ignore his antics, I couldn't after that. Luckily he didn't say anything to her about what she said or to me as I'm laughing like an idiot. I think only because we were done and could make our escape back out into the parking lot before he could say anything. I really hope the cashier got to go on break after she was done with him.
It was fun explaining to my husband at dinner why our daughters kept going "UUUHHHGH" to each other and breaking out into giggles at dinner, though.
