I ran out of formula so I went Walgreens for a quick stop to grab some. Well, I have coupons from Nick's work for free Nestle Goodstart formula well it can be "up to $15.00" and normally the formula is about $15.99 and I just make up the difference. Well NOT this time, he wouldn't accept the coupon. FINE i'm NOT in the mood. i'm tired, it's late and I want to go home, whatever, I just buy the generic stuff and leave. Well, I think to myself, I'll just go down to Albertsons and redeem the last two coupons (out of a 35-40 coupon book) for these cans of formula and as I'm walking to the baby food isle, i slip and FALL, twist my ankle to the point that I'm crying and this lady that is standing there watching it ALL practically runs away. She doesn't HELP me up, she doesn't ASK if i'm okay! NOTHING. I WOULD NEVER ever ever in my entire life watch someone fall and then do nothing.. i would practically sprint to them to make sure that they're okay. no matter what!!! well, i'm sitting there trying not to bawl my eyes out. I slowly stand up and continue walking to get the formula, I grab it and get in line. I wait and wait, and continue trying not to cry and he's finally ringing my things up and is OVER analysing these coupons. I understand why, they seem way too good to be true. A free can of formula for nothing, I don't have to buy anything, nothing.. yeah, i'd check it too.. that's fine. I let him do his thing and then he tells me "it's not the same product" and I calmly explain that they've just changed the packaging and that it is indeed the same item. He voids both cans of formula and just looks at me............. i say "is that it?" Thinking that the transaction was done and he says "well, I can't accept those, it's not the same item" **now i'm thinking** DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yes it is! i just broke my freaking ankle in your DAMN store and EVERY other time you've taken these (and so has Walgreens) and you're really not going to take these?!?!?!!!?" UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH i've never been so upset in my life. It's like they all saw me coming and they were out to ruin my night! I really couldn't calm down! I just can't believe how each thing set me off just a little bit more.
I SOBBED the whole way home. Practically hypercventalating. You'd think I was on my period or something WHATEVER!!!!!!!!!! i'm so upset and I have every right to be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm sorry for the swearing, I'm sorry for the one long run on sentence, I'm sorry for any spelling errors, and I'm sorry you just had to listen to me bitch!
plus side?? I'm not crying anymore and venting like this really helped. thanks!
also, now that I look back, i've definitely been more upset. I just wrote this "in the moment" haha.
