"

on va te faire chier

It was a normal busy day as I trudge my full grocery caddy to the closest cashier in the middle of a mob of people. Then I felt a little budge on my left side. An old man, with those large black framed glasses that make their eyes chinky, was actually budging me with his caddy out of the line. I looked at him looking back at me with a stupid smug grin. "Were you first in line?!" I asked with a confident tone. "Uh, yes, I think," he replied while I stared at him with my eyes of disbelief. With that he started to walk away but I was already tired & pissed off. I told him to just stay where he is then I babbled angrily how he's a senior and I bet he was expecting everybody to let him get away with it. I found an empty open cashier right away. If he just asked, I would have let him go first.

I so loved my abuelos but French old people. I swear.
My patience has been tried (and tested) countless times in seemingly ordinary situations. But don't start your protest groups just yet. I've been likewise touched by wonderful seniors here but they are really like gems. I remember what my father-in-law, 69, said, "It's our time to piss off people."

From Manila to Paris, then to Marseille & to the Côte d'Azur, now in Singapore, clinging to a map of three worlds, where everything becomes all relative.

  2. It happened to me in Auchan, I wouldn't mind if a person ask me to be served before me. But the Mister is so arrogant & still proud of his attitude. I still thank him so I could put him to shame in front of many people!
