I just called a woman a cheeky cow in Asda

Was just looking at the baked goods in Asda, minding my own when I heard this really loud voice go "excuse me!" Thought "she can't be talking to me as I am not obstructing the aisle" then this woman shoulder barged me and another shopper, glared at me and went "don't all move at once, will you?!" Sorry your majesty!

Something inside me clicked and I said "don't push past me, you cheeky cow!" she told me not to call her a cow and I told her not to be so rude in future. Then she said "do I look like a cow?" and I looked her up and down and did a "what do YOU think?" face.

Oh crikey, have become a screeching supermarket harridan. Does this type of thing happen in the Waitrose?

I think she was foolish to ask if she looked like a cow.

Of course it does. But it would be 'impertinent bovine'

JiltedJohnsJulie Tue 21-Dec-10 21:02:39

No, but you don't really think they are going to let you in Waitrose now do you? grin

Never in Waitrose.

<shakes head in disappointment>

Oh I forgot to add, after she dug her own grave with the cow question, she started ranting going "look at the fucking state of YOU! Etc etc" I thought I was looking rather fetching today as well. Bitch.

well you will shop in chavsda [serves you rigth emoticon]

It's ok it was Asda so that's allowed. You have your different shopping heads like good old Worzel Gummidge. Your Asda head ( wildly aggressive) your Tescos head ( very bored) and your oh so sophisticated Waitrose head(very coiffed.) wink

LadyOfTheFlowers Tue 21-Dec-10 21:06:48

Don't shop in Asda. Sorted.

I don't, for this very reason.

'Tis the season of goodwill and all that...

grin

Seriously you should never stoop to that sort of person's level. Just act blissfully unaware that they're being rude and say "Oh dear, I am sorry". It takes the wind out of their sails. She wanted a slanging match and you obliged.

I was once having a really bad day and got stuck behind a woman going into the supermarket. Her mobile rang and she stopped to answer it moving incredibly slowly towards the entrance. I meant to mutter "get out the fucking way" under my breath but it came out much louder than I meant and I then scurried off in embarassment.
YANBU - supermarkets are stressful places

YANBU - when you shop in Asda you have to try and blend in so as not to be noticed.

And she asked for it by the sounds of it.

AngelZigzagsSparklyYuletideLog Tue 21-Dec-10 21:09:50

YABU, for not understanding that the truth hurts wink

By the sounds of it, all hell's broken loose in supermarkets and people have started Christmas panic buying, you were lucky to get out alive smile

chrimblycompo Tue 21-Dec-10 21:10:42

Were you fighting to get to the last turkey? grin

LeakMyWiki Tue 21-Dec-10 21:10:49

can't have been the one in clapham junction or you'd be in hospital...

It must have been entertaining for the people around you both.

Do you hire out for parties?

Jajas Tue 21-Dec-10 21:15:06

C'mon which Asda?

GrimmaTheNome Tue 21-Dec-10 21:15:57

YABU.

Cows are used to moving in herds, and have nice eyes.

scottishmummy Tue 21-Dec-10 21:16:42

LOL,well she did ask.and is rude to lie

MrsNonSmoker Tue 21-Dec-10 21:18:54

This is the same woman that got me in Asda. She is on an Asda tour and will be coming to one near you shortly. Never in Waitrose ...

Booandpops Tue 21-Dec-10 21:19:19

Go to asda first thing to avoid the crowd. It's cheap. Better range than tescos and love George! But it can be a bit dodgy. Agreed. Everyone was very nice in asda today tho sympathy for me shopping at Xmas with 3&5 yo!!!!
