I went to the grocery store to pick up a few things. I imagine lots of stores put pressure on their cashiers to be friendly and chatty, but some of them take it way too far. I don't want your sympathy when I'm buying cold medicine. I want to buy chips and cookies without you commenting on how I must be craving junk food. This recent one totally blew me away!

She scans my home pregnancy test, looks at it, and goes, "Uh-oh! Is this a good thing or a bad thing?"


When I found my voice again, I said politely, "Do you think that's an appropriate question to ask someone you don't know?"

She got all huffy and finished scanning the rest of my items in silence. She spoke to me once more, to tell me my total, then handed me my two bags in silence.

So she acts like I was the one who was rude? Seriously, when is it EVER all right to ask a total stranger if her hypothetical pregnancy was planned or unplanned?
