Do I just LOOK like a have a ton of time on my hands

Ok- before I start my real post I have to brag- even if I sound like a loser. I got 140,853 with a streak of 522 on medium playing Cliffs of Dover on Guitar Hero. Thank you. Thank you... Tristan beat my score this morning, but that's ok.

This morning I went to Walmart. I thought it would be a nice, easy, quick trip because I didn't have Taj and Liv with me. I was wrong. I found all I needed quickly so that wasn't the problem. It was the chick at the check out line. Ok, I pull up to a totally line-less checkout and start putting my groceries up on the belt thingy. The cashier was looking at a magazine with Britney Spears on the cover. She came around to start ringing me up and said something like, "I'm sorry! I was just reading about Britney Spears." I smiled and said something like "Yeah. It's too bad she's so messed up..." I continued to unload my grocery cart, not looking at the girl, and she starts talking about how "If Britney lived with me I'd have her sober in a month. I don't drink or anything. And if she wanted to go out I'd tell her I have to go with her. I would lay a ton of ground rules. I'd be like the big sister, except I'm younger. My little sister would want to tell people so bad but I'd tell her she can't even tell Shelby. Shelby is her best friend..." I'm still unloading and then I realize I am out of room so I turn to look at the cashier and she is just standing there- talking- NOT RINGING UP ANYTHING!! She talked for at least 5 minutes about how if Britney moved in with her!! What the...!?!?? I wanted to yell "SHE'S NOT MOVING IN WITH YOU!!" or "SHE'S SANE COMPARED TO YOU!!" It took her about 15 minutes to ring me up. Ridiculous.
Then,... I go back to the auto section to pay for my oil change. There's already a guy there waiting to get a key made and pay for some oil. So, we wait. And wait. And wait. The man looked at my grocery basket and said, "Do you want me to push the button to unlock the door out for you?" thinking I was just stuck inside. I said, "I need to pay for my oil change! My keys are sittin' right there. I'm about to leave." He laughed and said he'd pop the door if I "wanna make a run for it." We were laughing but I was 1/2 serious. The lady finally came in and I thought the guy was gonna end up making the key himself. She was clueless!! So... 15 minutes from the time I came back there to pay I finally left. It was really kinda irritating and ruined my nice little break.
Anyway... that's my Walmart report. I now have met the girl who would sober up Britney. I feel so blessed.

I have no idea what the guitar hero thing means. I know, I'm lame.

I despise Walmart, yet I keep going back, can't afford not to. My husband went there with me the other night and he was in awe that I do this on a regular basis. I asked him, "Now do you get why I am always in a bad mood when I go to the store and why I prefer to go without the kids?" :S

Oh, and just a guess....you must be a Mavs fan. ;)

Amanda said...

Oh, yeah, and I was first AND second! :D

I don't hide it.. I hate WalMart. I won't shop there. I have gone there and will have to continue to go there on about a twice a year basis. Nothing in that store is worth it to me. NOTHING. I'd gladly pay double at Target.

Chel said...

oh yeah and I was 3rd and 4th... am I cool now too? :)

Chel said...

or is being 5th even better?

Awesome about Guitar Hero. I haven't played for weeks!!

hope you didn't have any frozen food items!

I stood in the pharmacy line at walmart the other day and two people cut in front of me, and I was standing there with a cart full of groceries (already paid for) and three kids! My five year old said "why did they cut." and in my quietest Loudest voice I said "because some people don't have manners!"

Yvonne said...

Wow! I'm impressed first of all that you play on medium. (I only play easy--just can't get those fingers to work ; )

I would have been so irritated with the clerk at Wal-Mart.

Reading your Wal-Mart story made my day! Thanks for giving my belly a reason to jiggle today. =)

Oh ... I'm a new reader of your blog.

I hate Wal-Mart also and I worked in one for 13 yrs. lol I left there in "good standings" (retired)but they're not a good company to work for. That girl would have been probably fired or at least wrote up with the manager I had. I go about once a week, there's no Target here, Wish there was.

Firstborn is getting GH tonight for his birthday (I have it hidden in the closet, shhhh!) so maybe someday I'll be a good as you. Maybe. Nah, probably not.

"I'd be like the big sister, except I'm younger" - What in the world? Boy, I love wal-mart (I do!) I buy most of my household needs there but food and clothing....the only thing is that I know what I'm getting into: Really terrible costumer service as in they are all ummm(how can I say this so it doesn't bad) slow and the atmosphere is not that pretty.
Oh well! :)

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha WAL-MART RULZ!!!! =}

Oooh, it's on! Friday night is GH night at our house. Looks like I'll be kicking the kids off the XBox so I can practice up on Cliffs of Dover!

I actually kinda wish I could have heard that whole Britany conversation. My personal best WM cashier story was the one that didn't believe that MY signature matched the back of MY credit card. I mean really. When you get the little pen 6inches from the screen it starts making squiggly lines but then when you try to press the OK button you practically have to hit it with a sledge hammer.

For the love of Over Friendly Britney Wanna Savin' cashiers!

I think you are a saint. A virtuous saint. Patience is a virtue that I struggle with daily. I must admit I would have said something. I just don't feel like I have time to waste listening to some chick, who is supposed to be making my life easier by ringing up my groceries, talk about something that 1- would never happen and 2- likely wouldn't work the way she outlined.

You are a saint.

No Cool Story said...

Aww. Klin is right yo.

I don't love Wal Mart. I think it's one of those places that makes everyone feel yucky. No matter how good an attitude I go in there with, I'm ALWAYS coming out with a mean brow, a steaming lid, and I'm READY for someone to just look at me wrong. That place makes me CrAzY. Maybe that's what's wrong with Britney?

Wal-Mart bugs me...big time. And it bugs me that the prices are so cheap and the store is so close to my house that I end up there regularly. Grrr... >:(

JustRandi said...

Oooo congrats on the GH thing. I just learned how to play last week. I'm still pretty miserable on the easy setting. But it's so fun.

Lauren said...

(shakes head)...WALMART...of course. haha!

aubrey said...

of course, when you want to just run in and out of a store it takes forever. or you're stuck in traffic. at least that is what happens to me.
