Sorry, but I need to vent!! ….So I went to the supermarket to get some Christmas supplies and I noticed this lady was staring at me in the same aisle I was in. No biggie. I moved to the next aisle and here she comes. Again… STARING! So now I’m like, What is her problem?! I finish up my shopping and head to the checkout line. Of course, who is there ahead of me but this same lady. She turns around and starts staring again. So I start playing with my phone so I don’t have to look at her. Finally she says “I want to apologize for staring at you, but you look just like my son who just passed away.” I felt really bad after that and gave her my condolences. She says “Thank you…but I have a favour to ask. I know it’s weird and understand if you don’t want to, but can you give me a hug and say ‘Bye Mama’ to me?” Inside I was like Really?!??!, but understanding grief the way that I do, I went ahead and did it. She smiles, thanks me, and leaves.
The cashier rings up my stuff and the total comes out to £100.87. I knew something wasn’t right, because it should have been like £40 or so. The cashier then tells me that my total was included with my mother’s. I’m like, “What?!!!” She said, “Your mother said you were paying for her last few items along with your things. I told her that the woman was most definitely NOT my mother. She said, well I saw you hug her and heard you call her mama. I’m like OMG…I flew out of the store looking for this witch, ready to get with her, I see her loading up her car! She saw me and jumped in her car, I got to her as she was putting her leg in, and I started pulling her leg hard enough that her wooden leg came off , so I grabbed her other leg and started pulling !! just like I’m pulling yours right now! Hahaha… if I got you good, feel free to copy and paste…
Never believe everything you read online!!
