Super Mom


and by tantrum I don’t mean the one a child has.  I mean the one two I had today that would make any two year old jealous.

Firstly, I have ear ache AGAIN.  This means that I pretty much have no patience.  Really.  Someone is trying to stuff a hot needle down my ear, every. single. second.  I’m sick of it.  I’ve been painless for a week.  This is NOT funny.  I’m sure my family is gatvol of it too.  Can’t be fun living with me when I’m feeling like this.  But they love me and say nothing.  Or they are scared.  Probably more scared.

So back to my tantrum(s)

First one at Pick ‘n Pay.  Staff shouting at each other from one isle to another one.  Stock not available.  Just plain bad service.  Then off to the tills to pay and there is THREE tills open!  In the whole of Pick ‘n Pay!?  Three!?  I stood for 0.2 seconds, then threw the stuff down on the closest possible stand and left.

Went to Ackermans at the very same centre, to get Kyla a couple of vests.  Small Ackermans, so normally we don’t wait too long.  I get to the till.  Three people ahead of me.  I have precious little time before I have to be at the doctor for said ear.   Very impatiently waiting.  In walks this woman, right past everyone in line to the till.  Puts down her pile of clothes and gets her wallet out.  WTF!?  I stare …. then says that she should get to the back of the line.  She looks at me like I’m a small bit alien.  Then starts talking to the other cashiers.  That was it.  My tor het afgeval.  I just grabbed the clothes I wanted to buy, walked past everyone and threw my clothes on top of hers.  Walked out and decided that I would never again put my feet in that store.

Did the tantrums help?  Not one bit.  My ear still hurts.
