I left for a business trip late Sunday and woke up Monday morning, away from home, with UTI symptoms. I was in a ton of pain and decided to manage symptoms, call my PCP to see if they'd call something in and make it through the day and either pick up a called in script or go to urgent care in the evening.
I went to big box store grabbed pyridium, acetaminophen, cranberry pills, and a huge bottle of water. It was early and there was only one checkout open. I was hoping the woman in front of me would have a little mercy and let me in front of her medium-large order. She didn't and, right or wrong, I was aggravated by that. Neither her nor the checker were in any hurry. The checker was commenting on every other item she checked out. Checker asked who the New Direction DVD was for and "Oh, Wrangler's making some cute jeans" (while holding jeans up,) customer was engaging in a back and forth on these things. She gave no indication that the cashier should stop commenting.
I was miserable. This interaction would annoy me on a good day, and it was 100 times worse when I didn't feel well. I opened up the packages and took a couple of every pill and drank half the water.
Cashier then is checking me out and said, (I still can't believe she said this) "Looks like someone had a good weekend." I raised my eyebrows and was completely silent. I don't think I spoke for the rest of the interaction, either. While the cashier didn't say anything non-transaction related, she also didn't acknowledge that she stepped over the line. The transaction went a lot faster, though!
