Silly Rant
« on: April 25, 2010, 06:36:17 PM »
Dear Lady Behind me at the Checkout,

I know you are there.  I also know you wish to put your goodies up on the conveyor belt as soon as possible.  I also feel your heavy breathing inching MUCH TOO CLOSE to my personal space in an effort to reach that dang "junk separator" that will officially divide my goodies from your goodies!!  BACK THE TRUCK UP, WOMAN!  I will reach for the magic separator as soon as it is within my reach, but as for now I am required by social law to NOT ram my cart up the rear of the person in front of me who is responsibly paying for HER goodies just so YOU can feel comforted in knowing your stuff is separated.  Are we clear?

Let's recap.

1) I know you are there.
2) I know you want the separator.
3) YOU'RE TOO DANG CLOSE TO MY BODY
4) I will reach it when I can
5) You're kinda rude.

Spanx a bunch!
Your fellow shopper

:)>>>>  BACK OFF!!!   :)>>>>


I'm a huge fan of personal space and have employed The Monster Butt Bump on numerous occasions with excellent results. (please note, individual results may vary depending on the size of your butt!)

As you may have guessed, I am not a 'turn the other cheek' sort of guy.

I think it's a control issue and many folks would rather avoid any type of confrontation than take control of their personal space, as uncomfortable as that may be.

Perhaps another tact might work as well.
Kindly acknowledge the other person's haste and offer to have them go ahead of you if they are in a hurry.  Who knows, maybe there is a valid reason that they're in a rush and being accidentally rude?

I'll stick with The Butt Bump though. ;-()

CONK da ball!!!

Whew, I was afraid this post was about me!  But since I never venture to the store I am safe on this one!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

Nope, you're good, hon. :)

Monster, our Abby and I both have personal space concerns.  That's Abby's #1 complaint about girls her age...they get too close and touchy.  One girl in particular drives her nuts b/c she touches Abby's hair!  LOL  That'd make me insane too, I think. 

I will say something if they are really way too close, but I doubt I'd ever use the Monster Butt Bump.  Hee hee...that'd be actual touching and I'm not down with that.  I'm not a real big goofball about my personal space, so if I feel uncomfortable you really ARE way toooo close.
