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!!
