Eh Auntie: After dropping off donations at Goodwill, I got in line to buy a 99 cent vase. The man in line in front of me was nice enough to let me cut, since I just had the one item. But when I got to the register and the clerk gave me the total, you came running up to the counter, yelling “How dare you cut in front of me–the nerve of you people!” First off, you weren’t even in line. Second, what’s with the “you people” bit? I grew up in Hawaii and have lived here since I was five. I’ve been here nearly 40 years. I’ve have done great things for this state and ALL the people that live here. Trust me that when you walked out of the store and I said, “God bless you,” I meant it, and you need it.
