Never must be other things to do in life besides waiting for a grocery store to open

have you ever watched any of the news clips showing the doors opening on "Black Friday"....hordes of shoppers (mostly women) running and pushing each other to get a sale item that some little spoiled twerp said they wanted for Christmas

In one video the elderly man that had the unfortunate job of unlocking the door was pushed aside and fell over

Ever watch the jockeying that goes on when people are all trying to get out the church parking lot?

Ever watch the lane changers trying to get ahead of everyone else when a 4 lane turnpike toll booth is coming up and it's funneling down to two lanes?

Was the guy a complete Bozo, yeah and an ignorant clod to go along with it

To quote a very famous and influential person: "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone"

Or, as Forest said: "You just can't fix stupid!"......Or words to that effect.
Have a good day, all!

Maybe the poor man was traumatized at how obvious it was that the Villagers have no understanding what a 6’ social distancing means. I went to two Publix supermarkets and chose the one with the less people and where the people seemed to be spacing themselves out, though more like 2’ rather than 6’. I stood back six feet from the person in line but the next person who came up stood right behind me. I asked them to step back and they did not. So I moved over attempting to create close to a 6’ space between me and the person in front of me and me and the person in back. He took that to mean that I was stepping out of line and to tried to get right behind the person who was in front of me! Unbelievable! I was extremely stressed out by people being so oblivious. This is the Villages! Where most people have the complications that can cause serious coronavirus consequences. Pay attention, people!

Why did you not tell him the line starts behind you....

If things get really out of hand, having police at the door may be an answer.

Maybe this man has a very sick wife at home and he was in a hurry to get his items and return home to her. We sometimes just don't know what other peoples lives are like at home or how someone is suffering.

There are a few rude and inconsiderate people here and elsewhere. It’s just a fact of life. Heck, I’ve seen people pushing others to get a better seat in church. My wife and I take turns shopping in order to help keep the crowds down in the supermarket. It’s a suggestion i saw and a very good one. I noticed some others sitting in their cars or golf carts waiting for their spouse/partner too. This too will pass in the weeks ahead.

That's very thoughtful of you to make an excuse for someone you don't even know. Here's another, maybe he's a jerk.
