    Weird incident 1
    I was shopping last night, and 5 minutes before the shop was due to close, a staff lady walked up to me and said the store was closed. I walked over to the till with my stuff to pay, and the till lady shouted across the two people already queueing that the store was closed and I couldn't pay for my stuff.

    Weird incident 2
    Earlier, while I was running in the park, an old woman ran in front of me to stop me. When I took out my earphones, she said "You run like a gazelle." A little taken aback, I replied "Um... thanks?" And she barked, in tones of high indignation "It was NOT a compliment" I just sort of mumbled "OK, thanks" and ran away

    What's with this week?

    In this economy, that's just plain stupid. To turn away a customer with cash in hand makes no sense. These must have been employees who had no personal stake in that store. Shame on them for their selfish disloyalty to their employer.

    Dude be more assertive!
    The staff lady doesnt want to serve you, you get her name, ask to speak with the manager. And demand service. If they dont respond, report 'em to the better business bureau, write in to the local paper about your service at that store. And be sure to stop by the store to pick up the paper from them... just to point out their poor publicity : )

    And as for the old lady in the park... She was being a bitch... she took it upon herself to stop you from your run, just so she could insult you. You should have taken it upon yourself to take your water bottle and drenched the old hag from head to toe... and then told her she looked like a dried up old flower that needed some water icon_smile.gif

    The shopping thing saved you some money. That's great news!

    And as for running like a gazelle, well I can't think of any way that isn't a compliment.

    Clearly, you've had a lucky week. You ought to get a lotto ticket.

    Try not to let it bug you too much. If it means anything, we've all had a few of those strange experiences. Just know that you're not the weird one. It's them.

    oh the bitch jogging is easy to take care of.... you look at her sternly and in your most commanding voice you say "DOWN BITCH!" the response is immediate and complete.... I've done it a few times my self and it never fails to put them back in there place!
