The nerve of some people
Sometimes I could just scream. I can't even tell you how mad I am. Some people are just huge jerks.
I was shopping today. My wife gave me $20 to get some things from the store while I was out. I reached into my pocket to get my grocery list and the $20 fell to the floor. I was reaching to get it and this lady grabbed it. I tried explaining to her that the money fell out of my pocket and she refused to give it back. She kept saying that she saw it on the floor so it is fair game. I got so mad that I asked her if she was in preschool still or what. Then she started making a scene and told me to leave her alone or she would start screaming.
I had my debit card so I could get the stuff I needed but honestly I was just too mad to even think about it. I followed that lady around the store while she picked out things to buy with my money. Sure she might have had a need but stealing is different than asking so I just got more and more angry with her.
I probably should have tried getting a manager but when you're mad that kind of thing doesn't occur to you. I just kept hoping the money would fall back to the ground so I could swoop in a pick up what belonged to me.
She got to check out and paid. While she was paying I could see she had plenty of money. She had at least 3 $100 bills that I could see plus other bills and I decided that I wasn't going to let someone steal from me that has no need. I followed her outside and she was parked just down from me. She was driving a new Lexus. It was all I could do to stop myself from keying her car.
As she started loading her groceries into the trunk I grabbed a bag and kept walking to my car. I'm not sure she even saw me do it but I figure I got about $20 worth of groceries. Maybe she'll figure it out when she gets home and maybe she'll figure out that you can't treat people like that.
