Had I Only Known!

 
Had to go to the supermarket (Albertson’s) today to pick up a few things.  I figured that since it was Thursday, it would be a good day!  Not crowded, easy parking and fast checkout, right?  When I got there (my first clue of things to come!) I couldn’t find a parking space within 200 yards of the store.  So I park, trudge to the front door and guess what?  NO shopping carts (clue #2)!  So I wander around the parking lot 100 yards in the OTHER direction and find one (from another store… with a wobbly wheel… that insists on pulling scarily to the left!)  I make it back to the front door, by now already exhausted….. and there is a LINE to get IN!!!  (clue #3) If there weren’t things that I HAD to buy, I would have left, but I bide my time and soon enter the #*&%@$g store.  It is packed!!!  Then I notice that ALL of the checkstands are open with lines extending down the aisles!  Did I miss something here??   Flood?  Earthquake? Terrorist attack?  Hilary is coming????? 
 
So I struggle through with my wobbly cart (running into people to my left…) and manage to get the items that I need.  I worm my way to a line (I think) that is headed to a checkstand.  It was a mob scene!!  Luckily my lame cart kept people from trying to cut in from the left!  I start talking to this nice woman behind me and say, "This is a madhouse!!  What is going on?"  She replies, "OH!  You don’t know?  It’s their annual ‘8 Hour Sale!" 
 
Well CRAP!!   So I ask here what’s on sale.  She says, bread, cereal, granola bars, pork ribs (pork ribs??), etc.  I ask her to look in my cart to see if I picked up any sale items!  ‘Nope"!!  Figures….  30 minutes later I am checked out but where did I park?  Finally I make it home…. kissing my driveway!!  Had I known, I think yesterday would have been a MUCH better day for grocery shopping.  I have GOT to stop throwing away those ads!!
 
I am playing MY favorite songs this week.  I think this one is #6 on my list.  Who knows??  Who cares??   But it’s funny, so enjoy!
 
Mrs S had to drive to San Diego this morning to attend the San Diego Padres/Houston Astros baseball game with her boss and 2 customers!  Tough job, huh?  Well for her it is since she hates baseball.  And tomorrow night?  Staples Center for a Lakers/Dallas Mavericks game…. and I get to go!!!
 
Well…… back to my cleaning!!  More dusting and windows!!  UGH!!  When I get that French maid outfit??  I’ll post pics!!

    We don’t have an Albertsons around here but it is the same when Meijer has their 12 hour sale.  Go first thing in the morning and prepare to fight if you have too.
