So I was in Aldi today… It’s Saturday and it’s my grocery shopping day…

My daughter was with me… we were standing in line to check out…

On Saturday’s this place can be so packed and chaotic…

There was a mother and her 2 children in front of me…

When the clerk had given her the total of her bill, she told her that she did not have enough money… She then proceeded to start handing the clerk items to void...

I could visibly see that the clerk was being less than helpful and acted annoyed…

The mother, was mortified and kept apologizing to me… Of course I was not bothered by this at all, I was actually fighting back tears…

I wished that I could give her the extra $20 that she needed to cover the bill but I, myself is living on a budget tighter than my pants, so there was nothing I could do :( …

The man behind me was shuffling, grunting and sighing heavily as a long line had formed behind us… I wanted to turn around and say why don’t you stop being a jerk and hand over $20 you rich a$#hole!

But she finally finished and left, not without apologizing to me and everyone behind me, AGAIN…

Sometimes, I just wonder when “we” became so dispassionate as a society…
