My default expression in situations like these has become a look of intense confusion. After years of waitressing I've become very non confrontational, but even at work I can get away with a look of confusion. They may interpret my confusion however they want, but in my mind, I have the satisfaction of knowing that it means "how have you managed to live so long in this world without learning any manners?" or "is there something wrong with you that makes you think it's ok to act like a child?"

Oh, and thanks for the compassion and hugs, all! Dave, it would take us about 3 1/2 to 4 hours, depending on traffic, of just drive time to get to the shore, add in the fun of a toddler and restroom breaks every hour for pregnant me, and a day trip just isn't worth 8-9 hours of driving. We'll just have to wait until after the baby comes and try again. Thanks for the idea, though!

I wonder if I can manage a convincing look of confusion...

Sorry about your boo boo. {{{KISS}}}} There, all better.
I keep a separate pair of scissors in the kitchen for packages and only use my "kitchen shears" for food.

I know it wasn't an important call because what I heard was" ..Hello.. nothin just shoopping you? ..yeah.. so what you doin this afternoon?" ARRRGGGGGG! Is it that hard to not answer a text or not take a call???

Then, yes, there is still more.

As I was bagging my groceries, another person came in behind me and instead of waiting until I finished bagging, started scanning and sending their groceries into mine. Did they not think the cans of soup or the cantaloupe were not going to roll down into my stuff?!?!!?
I would have bagged it with mine, said thank you and left. I bet next time that person shopped they would be more considerate.

Now I understand being in a hurry but I was using my walker because i had been ill and was a little wobbley , All I got from this woman was Sorry I'm in a hurry, party you know. WELL lady I didn't know but I hope you had fun. Both my grand kids had big eyes at this behavior. So we sat down in the truck and talked about it. They know to wait your turn and be polite. Ahhh life sometime isn't fair. What would you say to this person? I said nothing picked up my things and walked out with my kids and DH and hearing her say Well, she could of at least said it's ok
kades

She just wanted to justify her behavior and for you to excuse it. That way in her mind she did nothing wrong.
