So the other day my wife & I are in the grocery store (not WalMart) in line behind an extreme couponer. So Ms. Coupon sees some canned item pop up at full price on the register display and starts griping and arguing with the gal scanning the merchandise. They argue for 5 - 10 minutes. Finally I speak up and ask Ms. Coupon how much money is involved, I will give it to her out of my pocket to get the line moving. Ms. Coupon looked at me as if I had tried to snatch her purse, then she saw my wife busting a gut laughing and turned sugar beet red in the face.

Finally they took the items out of her bags and deducted them off the tab, and Ms. Coupon stormed off in a huff.

Man that felt good.

I politely said "I'm sorry but we're already here". When she went back to her Mom the mother was saying loudly that I was mean and then complained for a while. If we get there at the same time and I have my cart there already, was I wrong to expect to check out next???? Or should I have waited for her Mom to come over from a few registers down and let them go first?
Etiquette?? Oh hell, it's Wal-Mart not some Rodeo Drive boutique. Polite doesn't always cut it.
IMHO, tie goes to the one with actual items ready for checkout.

Nope. We're talking line ettiquite and it's not like those other things.

It would seem the child practices a flawed set of manners taught by parents. You were right.

If you use the words etiquette and WalMart in the same sentence, the sun will explode, destroying all known life in the universe.


Or the Cubs may win a game. Both equally unlikely.

That is like all a A-Holes that will send their kid to go stand in a parking space. One time I was waiting for a car to back out so I could have their spot. Before I could pull in some stupid kid ran in front of me and blocked me from parking. Some people simply have no class at all.

Walmart! This is the home of fat people in stretch pants riding electric carts. These Magabutts ride around eating chips and Dr. Pepper. They seemed to have found their place in life.

I probably would have pulled in anyways.

I usually avoid the Walmart Supercenters and go to Walmart Neighborhood stores, cleaner to a certain degree.

You do not have Shamu the tanker in a moo moo dress bending over for full view.
