You did such a good job building Jack's character as having major anger issues, that the ending seemed to come a little too easily. I thought it would take more than his rumbling stomach to "humble" him.?.? :)
You did a nice job with developing Jack's character. Your dialogue writing is good.

There are a few typos and editting issues that would probably be caught with another person proofing.

Good illustration of the topic.
Good development of Jack's character.

I have a hard time believing that a cashier would act that way, so the last part of this doesn't really ring true for me. A bit of tweaking, maybe?

This put me in the mood for Hershey's kisses...
Jack "woke up" faster than most people do when they get in a rage. Maybe the empty stomach had something to do with it. Good example.
Poor Jack. He's having a bad day. I like your story. It would help if you got someone to proofread it for you. Keep on writing!
A good story here. Keep writing.

Anger can be a major issus that led to all kinds of troubles and some end up
in anger managerment classes or worst.

Jack had a challenging afternoon:

Jack wakes from a nap, hungry, seem to love foods,
and seem to have nothing to eat.

He gets clobbered in the head with a rolled up newspaper,
beat out of a parking space at his favorite store,
called an old man by a young man, and was overchanged a dollar
more for an item.

Jack's anger was well painted and kept me to the end.

The end of the story brought me to laughter, What?

Maybe after watching a movie about Jesus' life and sleeping on it,
hungry Jack decided to learn of Jesus and humbled himself just a
'little' to go back and get his groceries he seem to spent so much time

"How can I be this stupid"

It just maybe as Jack said, a bit stupid to leave your food,
all the time spent there and go away hungry?

Matt 11:29
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:

and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

Like to read More from you. : )

I too, Learn from all your Comments. Thank you.

Enjoy and Keep in the Writing Lane.
God bless, Helen

Sorry, I needed someone to proofread me before I posted.

Meant to write overcharged, not overchanged.
(I don't think overchanged is a word?)

I wrote too much in a hurry and didn't proofread.

Hi Kimberly - decided to read another story. Great job. I can relate I have had some snarly cashiers.
I like the part about measuring up to Jesus - of course we hardly ever do - you explain that well. Thank you. Looking forward to reading more of your stories.I liked the ending too.
