So I'm at he grocery store stocking up on various things after being gone a couple weeks on vacation. I'm heading to the checkout line and walking ahead of me is this guy who is 80+ walking a little on the slow side. He's wearing his WWII US Navy Veteran Hat and has the tattoos on his forearms and everything. Now he has about, I don't know 14-15 items and is heading to a checkout line that is empty. A family consisting of a husband, wife and daughter are coming towards us at a decent distance. They see the old man and speed up to get in front of him. This is bad enough, what makes it worse is that they have a full F'n cart and as I said he had about 14-15ish items. So they then begin to put stuff on the conveyor. The old guy puts his hands on his hips and gives them that "I can't believe you just did that look." I park my cart and walk around the Ole Man. I then start to take the crap off the belt before the cashier starts to ring them up and proceed to refill their cart. The wife looks horrified and looks at her husband, who won't make eye contact with me, the daughter is asking "daddy what's going on?". Pushing the cart out of line, I make a motion for the Ole Man to go ahead. I actually give him a quick salute and then ask the husband if it's OK if the Veteran they just cut off can go ahead of them....the husband said it was ok with him. The Ole Man winks at me and proceeds to check out, I turn back around to the family and mention I am also a Vet, they promptly went to the next line. Before they leave completely I tell the husband to make sure he doesn't teach his daughter the same lack of manners he and his wife seem to have. I talked to the Ole Man for a few a couple, found out he served on a Destroyer in the battle of Midway etc. I gave him my number and told him if he ever needed a cribbage partner at the VFW to give me call. Somethings I just can't let stand. This just didn't piss me off just because he was a fellow Vet, people as a whole have lost their manners and ability to have some courtesy. The Vet part just pushed me over the edge.
