I just want to present this little GIF for you guys just in case you needed that little extra umph of INNER STRONG WOMAN SHIT today. Cause I sure do.
Soooo….I basically got bullied today in CVS for no apparent reason by this older man who felt the need to cut a bitch in line. I repeat CUT A BITCH IN LINE. Who would do that to a tiny little Asian girl who is literally buying one tube of Crest breathstrips toothpaste. It’s not like I was buying 80 boxes of Maybelline people. The cashier kindly told him that I was in line waiting and he straight up pretended like he didn’t hear her and continued to insert himself in between me and the register. Part of me thinks this dude thought to himself oh! this….small…woman… won’t say anything to me…strong…man (grumphhhdi caveman noise!) !
The cashier proceeded to remind him again that “sir, she’s waiting in line.” He pretended to not hear again. After a few moments of utter silence, the man faked a big old fake sigh and a big old fake eyeroll. What’s with the DRAMA DUDE? He kind of waffled back and forth on both feet trying to decide whether he was going to continue this injustice and then out of nowhere pulled this little random nugget out…”Well, she was doodling on her phone.” and mocked me “doodling on my phone” tapping imaginary air buttons. Say what now? When is scrolling through Insta in the CVS line a crime people? Is it bad? Is it a social no no? If it is, then I will seek this man out and apologize and it will absolutely go something like this…”Dir sir, Sorry that I want to look at pics of funny animals while I buy my tooth products. I will never inconvenience you like that again. From, Lowly sorrowful woman”
Well my girls were on my side. The cashier was like oh hell no, he didn’t. The woman in front of me with her newborn baby (who was probably but most likely a girl) were both like Oh HELL no he didn’t. The baby even woke up from a nap and was like “Sista please.”
In that moment, I decided I had to stick up for myself and say something to shut this shit down. And I did guys. Oh did I. It came out a little awkward and certainly wasn’t speech of the year but I felt like a strong woman on the inside and out and that’s all that counts. Plus the woman with the overly involved baby gave me her scroll of coupons for $2 off my toothpaste so karma does count people. It can get you inner strength and discounts on fresh breath products.
