#1 Rite-Aid Trip this Week....Here Comes that Crazy Coupon Lady!

I stopped by Rite-Aid when I took #2 son out for marching shoes this afternoon, since it was on the way and I had all my Qs

I would have been in and out quickly since I had planned what I was getting but the line at the register was 9 people long!  It was around 1pm and the only cashier was the Manager-the one who I intimidate.
I're thinking no way I intimidate her.  We had an 'incident' once and I have waaaay overcompensated for it by being overly nice/profusely apologetic if it's my bad/kind/accommodating/jovial/etc. every time I deal with her.  I'm like a manic/depressive on a manic high with her...happy and friendly but a touch on the border of lunatic.  I bet she thinks I am crazy and she doesn't want to be the one I go off on.....and it helps to know that they all know I carry a pair of scissors in my purse at all time.  lol

She also knows that I KNOW what I am doing and I am not shy about speaking up if things go badly and she KNOWS I am a regular caller to Corp. Customer Service.  I think all of that just makes her flustered any time she has to wait on me.  Hey, it sure beats being harrassed and snarled at by the employees, right?! lolol

Well, as expected the transaction flew off the tracks right away......I grabbed the wrong diapers, she forgot to scan the $5 off $20 first and had to redo the whole thing, then I came up short and she couldn't use a coupon so had to give me back a different coupon because the one she used but should have given back to me was a serialized AdPerks and was now "dead".....oh, it was bunches of all kinds of fun!!!
But we got through it and came out aok on the other side....and I never stopped smiling...once!   ;-)
