Warning: There is a bit of mild profanity in this post. At a recent show one of the guests, Pam, was asked over and over about her experience at Meijer. Every time the person hearing her story responded, "Oh, my gosh!" and then laughed uproariously. Finally, after everything was done, I asked her to tell me the story. Here it is: Pam had just finished shopping at Meijer. It was after work, and the parking lot was packed. As she approached her van she noticed that a woman was waiting to pull into the empty spot beside her. The woman was clearly waiting for Pam to finish putting her groceries in the van, so she decided to hurry. Fast as she could, she finished putting the groceries away, then moved her cart. She said that she always puts her cart away, but this one time, for the sake of the woman waiting, she simply put the cart in front of her own van and jumped in. She quickly closed the door, then heaved a sigh before putting the key in the ignition. Just as she started to turn over the key, there was a knock on her window. She looked over to see the woman who had been waiting standing just outside her door. She rolled down the window. The woman looked her in the eye and said, "Well, you could have at least put your cart away. That might have worked off some of your fat ass!" I asked her what she said. She said that she was so stunned that it took her a moment to respond. When she finally was able to speak she said, "Well, that was rude," rolled up the window, and started backing out. She said that when she told her husband about it later he asked if the woman was thin. She said, "I told him, no; she was fatter than me!" She said that once she got over the shock she felt really sorry for the woman. I mean, how miserable do you have to be to treat a stranger this way? I still chuckle when I think about it.
