Friday Fragments: the Grocery Store


  • To the shoppers who decide they don't want a perishable product and dispose of it by dumping it in some hiding spot, like the cat litter aisle,
  • To shoppers who park their carts right in front of the dairy case while they have an extended phone conversation,
  • To the woman ahead of me in the self-check who thinks I am rushing her, to the man who has parked his car right in the fire lane, to the shoppers who leave their dirty tissues in their carts:

TSK. TSK!!

  • To the greeters who continue to admonish me to wear a winter coat:
Allow me to introduce you to a crazy new concept called mid-life HORMONES.

  • To the man who bought the box of tampons and the case of beer:
Yes, the cashier should have put those tampons in a bag instead of assuming you would prefer to carry them out of the store carefully hidden under your arm.

O man don't get me started on this one....

To the Moms who let their tots suck on the handles of the carts

To the person who looks startled after her 3000 worth of groceries are rung up that she actually should be ready to pay for them

o my, I better stop

Have a great Friday

That's funny; the image of the guy with the beer and the tampons. God bless that guy!

To the woman who asked to go ahead of us to purchase two drinks and pay with a credit card (that was declined) and chat with the guy who worked there, if I see you again, I will choke the life out of you (the kids were with us that time).

Caution, that wasn't a man checking out with tampons, it was a woman whose mid life hormones aren't working real well. Yeah, I said it. She's hairy. She just LOOKS like a man now. She needed the beer to cope. That was her cart with the tissues in it.

How could they do that to the tampon guy? That's just cruel...but funny!

Jeannelle said...

Ah, yes the perils of grocery shopping. Have you ever seen that Seinfeld episode when George had to go buy tampons. Hilarious!

Thanks so much for dredging up the memory of the 16 year old punk cashier not being able to scan the feminine products I was buying. I was feeling my face get a little warm as he examined every square inch of the package, asked me if I always bought this brand and what did they cost, called the other 16 year old punk BOY over and asked him about them and then they both examined the package and asked me about them. GAH--forget it! I don't need them that bad! Sheesh!

Loved this post. You hit the nail on the head. My favorite one is the guy who circles the parking lot waiting on a space close to the door and then has the nerve to honk at me to try to make me load my groceries in the car faster. He ended up moving on cause I took a smoke break then, outside of my car. LOL>

To the crazy lady who was "waiting" for her daughter in the 2nd spot of the checkout line and would only back out to allow people to go ahead of her ONE CART AT A TIME!!!!

*Shame on you!!!*

These are the reasons why I put off grocery shopping until I can't take it anymore or there is no coffee, which ever comes first...and I buy Costco size tubs of coffee!!!

Here's to the real man with the tampons and beer!
