Thanks for serving our country! No, not you. and feet, too!

Two WTF's for the price of one.

I went grocery shopping this afternoon. There was a guy bagging my groceries as the cashier was scanning them. The guy kept staring at me and then very obviously leaned over and looked at my feet. He said, "You have pretty feet." Mind you, I was wearing my $3 pair of WalMart flip-flops and it's been a while since I've done a pedicure. My index toe is longer than my big toe and I've always thought that was really weird. I have some mosquito bites on them also, since I live in a town where the mosquitoes are bigger than your head and twice as aggressive. But seriously, who says that? I just said, "Thanks" and did my best to ignore the foot-staring until I was done.

Second wtf, as reported to me by my husband:

While I was grocery shopping, he went to Home Depot to pick up a few items. As he was checking out, he saw a sign that said, "Thanks for serving our country! 10% discount for all active military members, retirees, reservists, and veterans." As my husband is a veteran, he asked if he could get the discount. The cashier replied that he could, as long as he had his valid military ID. *facepalm*

ETA Cashier did tell him that "valid" meant "not expired."

ETA again OK, apparently an expired ID is still a valid form of ID for some things, but it still doesn't excuse the cashier for not knowing that. And making comments about people's feet is still weird.
