My old man

My old man came back from second deployment and he wasn’t okay. He told me this one lady perpendicularly blocked the isle he needed but he was too emotionally primed to communicate excuse me and just went all the way around to the other isle. She apparently moved to that isle doing the same thing. He said the cart was half full (father was a strong man) and he just picked the shopping cart up and threw it down the isle out of way.

He paused, and said he realized he was having a melt down and left before the police showed up. He was pretty upset that he did that, but it was always there…the rage. War just poured years of it out.

Every time I see someone blocking an isle I remember the way he looked telling me that story.


What do you think?
