Are You Freaking Kidding Me: Old Lady Edition

Wednesday is my favorite day to go to Costco because Wednesday is the best free sample day. Apparently, word has gotten out about the samples because it was super crowded this afternoon.

I was waiting patiently in the checkout line for what felt like three hours when an old lady, pictured above in the bathrobe, sun hat, and tights, sauntered right up and stood in front of the next person in line right next to the conveyor belt. Clearly, we were all standing in line, but she didn't care. She just started putting her items on the belt. The gentleman in front of me was much nicer than I am and said "You can go ahead of me" even though she had already decided to go ahead of him.

Thus, my wait got a little longer. I rolled my eyes and thought, "Are you freaking kidding me, lady?! You're too old to be a cutter."


  1. She's OLD so she's allowed to do those things!

    I'm with you, that would annoy me. If you're well enough to shop at Costco, you can wait your turn. Have you ever read Laurie Notaro's I Love Everybody? She has a very similar Costco story--hilarious!

  2. Oh no, my "sarcasm" part got lost somewhere! I put it after the first line about being old.

  3. Old people try (sand are frequently successful, I might add) to get away with stuff all the time I've noticed. It must be one of the perks of getting old.

    I haven't read that, but it sounds like something I would enjoy.

  4. Wow. That's pretty impressive. Who DOES that?!


I know word verification is a pain, but I'm getting a lot of spam comments, more than I can keep up with. I hope you'll leave a comment anyway. I really appreciate you reading and love hearing back from you.
