I wanted to do a quick grab of some grocery items at the Giant supermarket in Atria, Damansara Jaya when coming back from the city. It has been a long day. It was raining cats and dogs.
As I grabbed the green basket from the side of the entrance, I saw her. She was kind 0f petite, long wavy hair and clearly had it set before she went out from the house. She was wearing this white mini dress with an itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny, little strap that ran on her shoulders and matching white heels. Full of war paint too. As I make my way nearer to her to pick the pack of curry leaves near the isle, I couldnt help but to notice the label to her dress was up and out turned. She was wearing Miss Selfridge.
Wow, I thought. What a garb to wear for grocery shopping in Giant…
My 10 minutes quick grab had an about turn as I was distracted with some new displays of fruit juice at the juice isle. And so as I walked out towards the check-out counter, I saw Miss Selfridge was queing up infront of me. As her items were cleared on the conveyor I grabbed the “next customer” stand card and placed my basket.
That was when she started to push back my basket. Pushed my basket wayyyyy back towards me. I wanted to grab her itsy, bits, teeny, weeny, little white strap! What had just happened here? As I I was just about to open up my mouth and say something not as nice as “good afternoon”, the cashier totalled her grocery and gave her a promotion stamp.
At that exact moment I knew God answered my prayers to make me a VERY patient person and to bite my tongue when I need to as it will lead to some trouble if I did.
God created snooty human like her.
She picked the stamp from the cashier, promptly asked her what it was, and as the lady was explaining to her that the promotion stamp could entitle her to buy some pots and pans at a discounted rate, Miss Selfridge literally threw the stamp towards her and said, “Oh I dont need this. I have more than enough pots and pans at home!”
I rolled my eyes.
As the cashier was checking out my items, she asked me whether would I want the stamp. I said of course, I still havent had enough pots and pans at home!
And we both smiled at each other. She smiled more and said her thanks when I wished her well as I left the counter.
