virtue signal alert, and not a reference to my cock in any way.
So yesterday I was in line at Walmart at a self checkout. It was taking a while and finally I was next, waiting for this girl ahead of me to scan and checkout. I noticed prior that despite wearing stretchy pants, she was really bowlegged, and among her stuff was a pack of diapers, so I already felt bad for her. She also wasn’t wearing a mask, which was unusual in my area.
She gets to the part where she pays and used a government EBT card, which I guess turned out to be not enough money, so she whipped out a $20 to feed the machine, but it was ripped. So now Im waiting for her to get tape from the useless counter watcher person, and she’s fumbling around with the tape, so it seems she doesn’t have another $20 on her.
First off, I hate that feeling of everyone watching you fuck around with something like that. It makes me worse at doing it and stresses me out.
Secondly, I could see where this was going, which was that she was going to take forever taping the bill, and the next thing would be that the machine prob wouldn’t take it anyway.
Thirdly, some people who are in a situation like she was respond to that situation not with humility, but by lashing out at others, people who work there, people who look like they may be impatient, etc. It’s not rational, but some people do it, and I noticed that this girl had none of that shitty attitude. She was just trying to get it done and get out of there.
So with all this in mind, I approached her and asked her if she would mind if I took care of the remainder of her purchase for her. She looked surprised and thanked me. I didn’t know how much it was going to be before I asked, but I figured from the stuff I saw her buy that it couldn’t bee too crazy. Turned out to be $13.
On a personal note, I have no idea what her specific politics are, but as a white person who hates BLM and advocates for opportunity and personal responsibility, I try to go out of my way to be nice to black people and all people in whatever small but real ways. I think the more individuals who have positive experiences with white people, the less racist they are likely to be against white people, and the more open they might be inclined to be to consider the possibility that people disagree with race hustling politics not because they are trying to victimize them, but because they are trying to empower them. The only good way I can think to do that is to be nice to people.
