Shopping

Why ...

... do people get into the express check out with three times the posted limit?

... don't clerks working the express lane say anything to the person with way too many items who use that lane?

... do people wait until the clerk has rung up and bagged all their purchases before beginning the process of digging for their wallet (or check book)?

... do people who pay by check rarely have their own pen?

... does the cash register tape run out when it's my turn?

... does the cash drawer need change when it's my turn?

... do some retail employees think it's more important to sweep the floor than allow the only shopper in the store access to the area being swept?

... do some drivers going slow in the left lane speed up when you try to pass them then slow back down when you give up the effort?

... don't some drivers use their directional signals? (aka: indicators)

... can't/don't some drivers read the 4' x 4' sign posted that their lane ends SOON?

... do drivers in the merge lane always think they have the right of way?

... do some drivers who aren't using a cell phone sit through green turn arrows instead of paying attention to the signal?

... do people park in handicapped spaces who do not have a handicapped placard?

... didn't I stay home and use the pool?

Well well well.

I think RQM said it all, now didn't he.

I think we can stop worrying about the white van. Either the joker driving will be so busy on his cell phone that he'll never find us, or he'll be cut off by someone using a cell phone and need to get his van serviced.

My favorite.

The other day I zipped into a store to buy a mixer. Yes a mixer. So as I'm walking up to the check out, a woman races me to beat me to said check out. She has a basket full of stuff. I think to myself, had that been me I would have said...blah blah blah. This dame knew full well that I had one item and when she was finally finished with ther 250 dollar purchase she turned to me and said, oh if I knew you had only one item blah blah blah.

ME MOVIES. THEY ARE EVERYWHERE!

UGH! I also live in Florida and I just did a couple of posts about our wonderful shopping choices. Glad I'm not the only one.

No, Theresa, you are most certainly not alone. Shopping has challenges everywhere, but Florida seems to have a few unique features like no other. It's fun to bitch about at least.

Here's something scary.... fourth quarter is just around the corner.

CJ....

Just became a Costco shopper!

That was fun and easy and only 7 miles from my house!

Who knew. A warehouse store that pays it's employees a living wage and gives them good benefits.

I suggested to RQM he make the trek and start saving!
