Craig and I had to run to Wegmans tonight to pick up some yams and so we decided to grab some Chinese food for dinner while we were there. Weggies has awesome take-away. Anyway, I digress…
It’s like quarter to six, and so the place is literally crawling with people. After work shoppers looking for a quick dinner & last minute holiday shopping probably making up most of the crowd. You get the picture; it’s busy. The Market Cafe is packed, and we get to the area where they have the chinese food just ahead of several other people. We grab our take out containers and browse the buffet. I’m really picky, and so after I grab some veggie lo main, I head straight to the sweet & sour chicken. It’s right next to the bacon wrapped crab thingees, which I lurve. I’ve got about five other people behind me. Now. Here’s the rub. The world has stopped as we are all wait on this one stupid woman and her two little kids.
Mom has given her two sons each their own huge take out container. One boy looks to be about 5 years old, I would guess the other is about a year younger. They can barely reach the counter, but she’s letting them each, on their own, pick out 1 piece of chicken from the sweet & sour chicken bin, THEN she’s letting them get their own sauce. That’s it. She’s not getting any food. They’re not getting anything else. Just these two little pieces of chicken with some sauce. And it’s taking literally forever, as it must be the RIGHT piece of chicken. Mom knows she’s holding up the works, but she shoots us all a look like she’s just so entitled to stop everyone in their tracks in order to pacify her little sproglets. And they are not coordinated. It’s a mess. It’s agonizing watching them struggle with the sauce ladle. And it’s taking FOREVER.
Here’s what pisses me off. Obviously it’s crazy busy. If Mom wants to treat her children to two measly pieces of chicken while she shops, so be it, but geez, couldn’t she be considerate of everyone else and just get it herself, rather than slow everyone else down who’s there to get food? I mean, was that really freaking necessary? I don’t think so. It was rude and inconsiderate, but I’m sure that stupid sow believes that because she’s a mom, she and her spawn are entitled to “special” treatment. Let’s all wait for her. *rolls eyes* Never mind that everyone behind her has their own agenda and personal schedule to attend to. She has the babiez!!
Stupid fucking bitch. I hate that crap.
