E-eee-ville Woman

I'm such an evil woman. When I go shopping, I get irritated when there is nobody else on the aisle I'm walking down except for one person and they're standing right in front of the very thing I'm shopping for. They're standing there like a stone reading every label and turning boxes over and over and over in their dirty little hands.

When I went to shop for my new camera/microphone for my PC, there was a woman standing right in front of the webcams at Best Buy. I could tell by looking at her that she was going nowhere fast. Since I had no idea what I wanted, I couldn't just reach around her and grab one and run like I would do for toilet paper or eggs. So, I walked up to the cams and kind of scrunched near her so as to make her uncomfortable enough for her to pick her damn camera already and get the hell out of my way.

Here's where the evil begins. I knew the girl. Not only did I know her, she is one of the sweetest, nicest people I know. You want to know why she was buying a webcam? Go ahead. Ask me. Her dad, who lives in Indiana, had a stroke at Christmas time. The family thought they could help in his rehabilitation if he could see them when they were talking to him whenever they would call. I wanted a webcam to sing bad Beatles karaoke and this sweet girl and her whole family needed a webcam to speak to her disabled dad who lives hundreds of miles away.

I am scum. However, if you are standing in front of the Charmin, I will squeeze uncomfortably close to you so you will get the hell out of my way. Same goes for the eggs.

Well, honey, that's not so much being evil as it is being practical. LOL. Did you find what you were looking for?

Here's the one that irks me. People will park their shopping cart on one side of the aisle and look at something on the other side, thereby blocking the whole aisle. People need to keep their buggy, their kids and their big dumb ass on one side or the other. As for evil, I've pushed someone's buggy halfway down the aisle to make them understand the concept. Then I kicked her walker as she chased it. >;)

Scum? No. Karma's bitch? Yes. :) :)

And "Hahaha!" to the walker kicking comment. I just "lol"ed. Ha.

BTW, I need that toilet paper to send to my blind and deaf cousin in the Yukon. He may be blind and deaf, but at least he can wipe himself. :)

(I am scum.)

Serena Joy - I sure did. We ended up helping each other. So, maybe I cleaned up my karma a little bit.

Pokerboss - Yeah (well, except for the kicking the walker thing)!

Jen - Ah, but we're lovable scum.

I sometimes misinterpret evilness for some work-induced psychotic behavior that gives me visions of shooting people through phone lines and wondering if such technology would ever be possible.

Then I look at my daughters picture and I feel better.

Until the next phone call.

Grimm - I hate those phone calls. Work on that shooting/telephone thing, will you.
