When I go to the grocery store, I don’t go there with the expectation that the cashier knows all the coupons, downloads and prices of everything in the store. So, why is it that other people go to the grocery store with that expectation? I mean if a digital coupon doesn’t work or you didn’t download it right or a price is wrong why yell at the cashier in front of you? He or she has no more control over that than you do?
Yet everyday, and it seems to be the same customers every time, they feel that yelling at the cashier and getting all loud and obnoxious will change anything or that it is within the cashiers control! Some make a point of yelling at cashiers especially if they are young kids. Why? Are you related to them in some way and feel you have the right to scream and yell and call them names that you probably wouldn’t even call your own kids?
I am tired of this self-righteous, self-absorbed and entitled attitude that most people have these days! Why are you more entitled than someone else? If it’s your mistake own that shit instead of putting it off on someone else? This society today is so self-absorbed and has a sense of entitlement that I have no idea where it came from. I know that if my grandfather had heard me yelling at a stranger the way some of these customers yell at the cashiers these days he would smack me upside the head and make me apologize.
Now I’m not saying it is all young people, oh no, older generations are doing it too and I know they weren’t raised that way! So what has this world come to that we as people think that just because we live and breathe we are more entitled than anyone else? Please answer this question for me because for the life of me I can’t figure out the answer and I am quite frankly getting very pissed off with people as a whole for this attitude.
I am wanting to become a hermit and move to the countryside where there are no people and just not have to deal with it, no wonder more and more people are suffering from anxiety and depression. We don’t stop to think how our words and actions affect other people and consequently we are destroying people, whether knowing or not and let me just say if you do it knowingly then you deserve whatever karma throws your way!
Next time you are at the store or anywhere and you start to want to scream at the cashier or another person stop and think how your words and actions are going to affect that person and you know if they don’t smile right away try asking yourself what could have happened to this person today that could make them be this way and maybe we can start to have a friendly and productive society again like it used to be in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.
Thanks and Happy Writing!
