Evening, hope you are all ok.
Doing my usual weekly grocery shopping today, and was quite upset by an incident at the checkout.
An older gentleman had a query about a couple of his purchases, and was asking the cashier about them (it was actually Bacardi, 1 ordinary bottle, and one flavoured one!) He was taking a bit of time, and seemed to be a bit hard of hearing.
The next man in the queue (middle aged), and in front of me, turned to me and said "Silly old git, gets on your f***ing wick, doesnt it!"
I wasn't entirely sure I'd heard him correctly, so just smiled.
Then the man in front turned to me again and said "Oh now he doesn't know his f***ing pin number!"
No question of mis hearing this time!I
I was upset on 2 counts, firstly the intolerance of the man, towards the older person, but also that he felt it acceptable to use that word to a random stranger in a supermarket queue!
Don't get me wrong, I can swear like a trooper, but would never use such language to a stranger!
Perhaps I should have posted this under AIBU, but I try to avoid that!
Son's fiancee hates us - we're going to family therapy
My dilemma is that she's a slob - how to discuss with her?
A level of gravitas and decorum has been lost - don't think she's a naive player
