There are just days where kindness has no place in the universe.
Today was one of those days.
My mom had asked me to go to the supermarket, the nearest is Robinson’s Supermarket at Madison Galleries, in our neighborhood.
Every time I go to this supermarket, I need to remind the cashier for the senior citizen/PWD lane, that the lane is a priority for them. It’s disappointing that both the supervisor and the other employees of the supermarket simply look the other way when there are people who are not seniors or have a disability queueing this lane and the senior citizens having to queue at other lanes.
I went up to the supervisor and loudly (yes emphasize on the loud), reminded him that it’s my nth time to remind them that:
(1) there is a sign that says that there is a priority lane for the seniors and disabled. They emblazoned that on the very large sign. Why can’t they follow it? Or is the cashier clearly an ignoramus?
(2) if they just put it up for compliance with DTI requirements, and they cannot follow the sign they put up to the letter, just take it out!
There were two young girls on the lane snickering and I told them that they’re either stupid, uneducated or blind! If you can’t read it, you don’t have a right to even flash a debit card to pay for your chips and Gatorade. Their parents ought to be ashamed of how they brought up these imps.
I write this to remind everyone that there are signs for a purpose. It’s not just because you’re in the Philippines or you live in an exclusive subdivision and pay with a debit card, you think you can make your brain cells melt and feel entitled. There is a reason for signs on the street, in the malls, on the walls, in the supermarket, in the toilet…it’s for you to read stupid! The signs are not suggestions! You don’t plan on following the signs then f*ck you! Don’t complain about the way the government is run when you can’t even discipline your own backyard.
There’s a jerk born every minute. And they come in various forms. But for the establishment not to follow what it preaches, well, I think there’s something very wrong with the hired help.
Sometimes there are just things that need to be said. Because often times, stupid people deserve that.
There are just too many morons in the universe these days.
