If I actually vent about something daily, does that mean that I have to say something positive and constructive also because if it does, that is just way too much effort and I don't feel like being cheery all the time (or ever lately).
Here is my vent for the day...
I went to WalMart today *stop the conversation and back up*...I HATE WalMart. Hate isn't even a strong enough word, loathe is more like it. I will go to every other store in the state for something I need before I set foot in WalMart. I think a requirement to work there is an IQ of less than 30 and I feel the same way about people who shop there regularly (sorry, but I unapologetically do). Anyway, for whatever reason my IQ momentarily dropped below 30 today and I went there for these bins that I needed and knew they had.
I went in, headed straight for where I thought the bins would be (but weren't), looked around, grabbed them and made a b-line for the nearest check stand. I didn't want to be in there longer than was absolutely necessary. When I got to the check stands there were only 2 or 3 that were open along with 3 self checkout lanes. The lines for the "regular" checkout were way too long so I stepped into the self checkout line - there was only one person in it afterall, and they were almost finished.
Ok, so I know you think my vent is about WalMart and it could be - but it's not.
My vent is about STUPID people who use the self checkout lines but have absolutely NO IDEA what they are doing or any idea how to manage a computer. So I'm behind this guy who has 3 things left of the conveyor belt and a whopping 20 minutes later finally managed to finalize his purchase. Are you kidding me??? Why did I stay in line so long? You know how you wait thinking "surely he'll catch on and speed up" or "he only has 1 more thing, how long can it take". And then, after 5 minutes you're invested in the line and you figure it's bound to be your turn at any moment. NOT the line I was in!
Dear man in line ahead of me: touching the computer screen over and over again isn't going to solve your problems, staring blankly into the monitor won't work either. There is a correct and incorrect way to insert cash, please look at the little cartoon picture of George Washington and figure it out. Trying the same thing over and over again won't eventually work. When you get your change back, look for the big red sign that says "change here" and pull your money out. Don't spend 5 minutes looking the machine over to try and find it. It is an automated system, if you'd just listen or actually READ the instructions, you'd know what to do. Please for the love of Heaven and Earth, don't use a self checkout line again until you're familiar with the English language and have the mental capacity to actually follow its instructions.
