Pirates attack at The Pig

Days Without Pirate Attack:

Days Without Pirate Attack:

My list of “should have known better because I know me fairly well” would be pretty long. I went to the Piggly Wiggly, AKA the Pig, Sunday morning. It was full, of course, with pre-game and gonna-snow-later shoppers, and I only went to get canned milk to make fudge. As I get near the crowded checkout lines, a guy on the phone is blocking the aisle. In my smart-ass mode, I mutter, “Hang up and drive.” He responds, “You don’t have to be rude.”

I turned around, went right up to his face and said, “Yes, I do, because you’re the dumbass on the phone.” He repeated, “You don’t have to be rude.” Pithy, right?

Yes, I feel guilty that I couldn’t hold a response. I couldn’t just notice it and let it go. I’m still responding and taking pride in my greater guts and thinking I’m right.

    “You don’t have to be rude.” To me that’s the message I need to receive. 2 Very powerful words–HAVE TO. I don’t HAVE TO drink, smoke, overeat, overspend, yell, pout, be perfect. I don’t HAVE TO. There is nothing I HAVE TO do. Or I guess the other warning is don’t get between a pirate and her fudge. 🙂
