Generally speaking, I’m a big believer in turning the other cheek, The Golden Rule etc., but there are always exceptions. Take this instance, for example.
A man is in line getting groceries at Walmart with his child when the woman behind him just can’t help but take a peek at how he’s paying (because it’s totally her business) and then all hell breaks loose. For those of you who have never had to go through this experience personally, you can’t possibly understand how warm your face feels with anger and shame when you know you’re being judged. The fact that this cruel woman berated a perfect stranger in front of his CHILD is beyond despicable.
When he tries to explain that he works 50 hours a week to provide for his family, you can hear her shriek back at him, “No you don’t, I do!.” At that point, he just loses it — and I don’t blame him. Maybe he could have handled the situation better, but the real shame is that he had to handle the situation at all.
Watch the sad situation unfold in the video below:
