So, i go to @Lowes today at lunch to buy flowers and dirt for the weekend. I spent 301.13 on flowers Sales# SO232TC1 2273204 Trans# 65251848 at Store 232 Terminal 65 then purchase $28.00 on dirt: Sales# SO232TC1 2273204 Trans# 65251901.
I load up my flowers and drive around to the loading area for the dirt. The guys are busy and i am a reasonably healthy grown man who doesn't need help to load his dirt,AND, i decided to help the guys that were loading.
They were working hard,and i have done that job before for years when i worked in reatil, so i prepared to load it myself and show the receipt when i'm done. I load the first two of 4 bags and come back for the last two.
On my way out, of of the guys, I WAS HELPING yelled out to me when i was about 75 ft from him "Are you the guy in the last truck in line?" I nodded. He replied with a snarky, passive aggressive tone "I'm sorry you couldn't wait your turn until we got to you."
There were 3 people ahead of you!" "Do you have your receipt?!" I nodded yes.
I was stunned and embarrassed and thought the tone and voice had to be a joke but no. I became a bit defensive but never raised my voice telling him that i would have shown the receipt before leaving.
He mentioned something obout cameras and it looking like i was just walking out.....with dirt. I asked him if he would like me to unload it and put it back so they could load it because he was being rude. "No, i'm just saying blah blah blah"
... Ironically, in the truck was 4 bags of top soil that i had bought from Wal-Mart a few days before, that i loaded. Not only did i not get fussed at for loading it myself, but the old gentleman and i had a good conversation while that was happening.
NOW, instead of enjoying my weekend transplanting these flowers, i have to feel like crap because i got into an argument with the dirt loading people at @Lowes . AND I"M NOT SURE WHY I"M THE ONE FEELING BAD!!!
I swear, everytime i feel better about humanity, i meet more humans.
