If you haven't figure it out yet, I really use this site as a diary or journal. And tonight I'm going to write about a dilemma.
Do I complain and get a guy fired or just ignore it?
After work, I go to the grocery store (it's so nice to have all my cards and driver's license and all -- my wallet was stolen last month). So I'm rushing in just to get something for tonight and I'm in the express 'lane' (one lane for three registers) when this guy named Josh (who works there) gets behind the counter and points at me to the cashier furthers from me and laughs, then moves over to the second one and they laugh and then the third one and they laugh. And at first I thought he was going to say something to me like hello but I began to realize he was pointing at me and laughing.
When I left, I made sure to check my clothes (my hair's short -- right on the scalp, so it's not like I had to worry there). So I'm thinking, what the hell?
And I'm thinking, "Why is this punk laughing at me to begin with?"
He lives in my complex. We don't talk. I don't know where he lives. Sometimes we're at the mailbox at the same time and say hello.
But at any rate, he was laughing at me and it pisses me off. I'm going to a grocery store, not a club. And I really don't need the Heathers routine from a guy whose hair's been black, red, orange and pink already this year.
But if I say something, I could end up responsible for the guy getting fired.
I don't want to get somebody fired in this economy but I go to that grocery store because it's one block from the apartment and I can be good to the environment and just walk there. Now I feel like everytime I go in, I have to be prepared for bitchy Josh going around and laughing at me.
Be sure and check out all of last night's theme posts:
Betty offered "Lenore Kandel and others," Trina offered "Cornelius Eady," Ann offered "5 men," Rebecca discussed "a trip uptown," Ruth offered "Nancy Boutilier," Kat provided a critique via "8 Major Young Poets?," Marcia suffered through "take hold!" (bland poetry, if you haven't read her post yet), Stan attempted to give "Damon Runyon" a fair break, Elaine sampled "Baby Toes" while Mike explored poetry in verse and in song with "Robert Duncan, Graffiti6" while Wally & Cedric continued the theme by offering the Florida primary results in poetic verse "THIS JUST IN! RHYME AND REASON!" & "The poetic primary."
Going out with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
