Are You The Queen?

Here I am, ready to rant again.

SO, Friday, I went to Wal-Mart to pick up a prescription for #1.  (Nothing major, she just takes 1 ml of re flux medicine a day.  It's pretty important, but she's not sick or anything.)  In our recent move, the closet Wal-mart is always busy.  And the pharmacy is insane.  Because I was a slacker I hadn't ordered the prescription refill until we were out of the medicine.  At the time of this story, #1 had missed 2 doses of her medicine.  She was not a happy camper.

There I am, waiting in a super long line to pick up #1's prescription.  It was just me, and because #1 had been asleep when I first got there I was carrying her in her car seat.  So, she was heavy.  But of course as soon as I got in line, she woke up.  I didn't want to pull her out, cause then I couldn't carry her, the diaper bag, and the empty car seat.  Instead I was crouching on the floor, holding a pacifier in her mouth and rocking the car seat back and forth.  It wasn't really working.  She still hated it.  And she was screaming!  I'm slowly moving up in the line, trying very hard to take care of my screaming baby.  It was quite stressful.  Then, finally, I was next in line!  I could see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Then, a dark cloud covered the pharmacy, and an evil woman swooped down.  (Ok, not really, but that's how it should have happened!)  She walked over to the drop-off window and I heard her say, "Hi, I need to pick up a prescription." To which the employee responded, "Sorry, ma'am, but this is the drop-off window."  Miss Queeny then flashed a flirtatious smile and said, "Yes, I know, but I'm in a hurry, and I didn't want to wait in that long line, so I thought you could help me here."  She was told no, and so she started walking towards the pick-up area.

Right as this happened my turn came up.  As I went to pick up the car seat, evil-selfish-I-Think-I'm-All-Important-woman rushed in front of me with a quick smile and a "sorry" and butted in line.

EXCUSE ME???  I was in too much shock to really say anything.  The Wal-mart employee didn't care and helped her first.  

Um... Hello!!!  Do you see me?  I've been waiting in line for 20 min!  And my daughter is screaming!  And you're mean!  I don't care who you are, get in line crazy lady!

After she was done she turned to me again, and said, "Thanks for letting me go first, I'm just in such a hurry, I'm on my lunch break."

To which I replied "I didn't let you.  You jumped in so fast that anyone with less than lighting speed reflexes had no choice, you selfish mean lady."  (Ok, I didn't say that.  But I wanted too!   I think what actually came out was, "Uh... er..."  Yep, I'm that good.)

I don't know where this lady got off.  That was just mean.  I'm sorry that you are in a hurry.  But if it is now your lunch break and it is only 2 PM and the pharmacy doesn't close till 9 PM I'm sure you could have come later!

I was very unhappy.

Oh my word! I would have been LIVID! There is nothing worse when you have a screaming baby that you are trying to keep content in a public place! And holding the car seat too? Yikes! You are woman! Let's hope you don't run into that lady again right? lol!

Wow, aren't you glad that you aren't walking around that oblivious to others lives and needs? To be that centered on self has got to be miserable. (and yes, mean)
