My word vomit is getting out of control.

I can’t even grocery shop without causing a scene.

I’m checking out at Trader Joe’s. Because I am a crunchy, granola gal, I bring my own bag for my groceries. My cashier is scanning all of my tempeh & vegan cream cheeses & bottles of Two Buck Chuck (he’s def judging me already) and I’m just bagging away, doing my part. I’m really just chucking items in there, no strategy at all. He finishes his deal and takes over. He takes one look in the bag and goes, “Man, it’s a free-for-all in here!” I respond, “Oh my gosh, I know, I’m so sorry, I’m just really terrible at everything I do.”

 

…………………………………….too far, Rachel. Too far.

When will I learn that I can’t use kind strangers as free therapy anymore?
