Mombshell Toast (is it o-k with you if I get a little bit catty?)

A Mombshell  Toast going out today to the woman in front of me at Gymboree.  You cut in front of me in line, then you proceeded to pay with a check.  After writing the check, showing your photo I.D. and reciting your driver’s license number, you decided you didn’t want the red shirt.  

The saleswoman cheerfully voided your check and re-adjusted your total.  You then decided to pay in cash, but then you realized the yellow shirt marked $4.99 wasn’t actually $1.99, like you thought. 

You then called for a manager to discuss that when the $4.99 tag was placed on the shirt, it covered the $11.99 tag making it look like it was $1.99.  When I left you were still speaking with the manager about how the store should give you the shirt for $1.99 because it was so misleading.

Meanwhile, I would have had time to run back to the car to get my cloth tote bags, if I had just thought of it!  Meowwwwwwww!

    My reference to catty in this post is not being mean or witty, it’s talking about something that maybe is best left unsaid. My husband said I was catty with this post, on second read, maybe this is just venting? I don’t like people who cut in lines and generally believe that the rules in this world are not for them.

    A high school catty comment to me would be to make a criticism about another woman’s appearance or behavior aloud to a group of other women just to make fun of someone. So that’s pretty much just being mean, I don’t think wit has much to do with it.
