Grocery Store


Yeah, sooner or later, we all got to go there.
I made my weekly foray yesterday, and here's a
few things I observed.

The first cart you pull out will invariably have
some trash in it. Usually the grocery flyer, sometimes someone's list. Found a sub from the deli in a cart one time. A diaper another time.

There are never any heavyset people in front of
the yogurt cooler.

Elderly white women will read every label
thoroughly, calculate the price, and don't give
a damn if they're blocking you from an item.

When two black women are shopping together,
they push their carts side by side down every
isle. Unless you say something, they will
pretend you are invisible.

Little kids like to make faces at me. They're
always surprised and delighted when I make one
back.

Their parents don't find that amusing.

If I buy collard greens, mustard greens and
grits, and my check out lady is from the
south, she will automatically assume I'm a
Georgia boy and flash me the biggest smile
possible.

She will be shocked and dismayed to find out
that I'm not a Georgia boy, and then just
clam up, probably assuming I'm just wierd.

When using the self check out, it's always
a bad idea to get behind the elderly guy
wearing plaid plants and a sweater. In August.

Surly check out clerks don't think it's
funny when you write "You forgot to smile"
on the bottom of your check.

People who obviously never work out think
the grocery store is a great place to wear
spandex and muscle shirts.

If I joke with the bag boy or girl, they will
invariably offer to take my groceries out to
the vehicle. They always look cheated when
I decline.

More women talk to me when I wear shorts instead
of pants. "Is that really good? I've been thinking about getting some." Seems to be the
favorite opening line.

My cats always think I'm bringing home
something special just for them.

And last but certainly not least, once
I'm home I always remember that there
was something I forgot!

All true except if you are in my town,
you will see my fat ass in front of the yogurt
section. Especially when I'm dieting.

The yogurt runs a distance second
to where they sell fried chicken
in the deli section. Don't get
me wrong, I love fried chicked.
It just doesn't love me back, so
I very rarely buy it. As I've
gotten older, I've discovered
I'm eating healthier by default.
A lot of the stuff I used to
like just kills me now. At the
rate I'm going, it'll be Gerbers
again in no time!

~Giggling I've seen so much stuff happen at the supermarket that I'm almost blind to it for the sake of my sanity.some people are just so damn rude these days,and I always use the self check out because I think most cashier fail the class on packing , and they are not very friendly.I always tell cashiers I require a smile when they are taking my money..lol. I also love making faces back at kids..lol

You're right, they should smile.
Not only are they taking my
money, but I'm entertaining
them with all the wierd junk
that I buy!

I used to be a cashier when I was in high school and in between college. I always had a smile for my customers. It kept them coming back and made me work harder to prove that I was the best cashier there

I hate the way they pack my grocery bags. One item in one bag, another item in another bag. I tell them to please don't be afraid to pack my grocery bag, I'm not weak!

I don't mind people making faces at my kids.....my kids love it when they do that. Some parents are just a little too anal or something.

I think you are weird too, I couldn't eat some of what you buy at the grocery store

I'm not a southerner, but I do like some
traditional southern foods. Grits, well,
they're pretty bland, so they're right up
my alley. Collard, or mustard greens, you
just have to try them. Better than spinach,
in my opinion. If you see Glory brand, go
and buy a can, about $2.70, and give it a try.
They're very flavorful, and you might like it.

Don't you love the way they stick
their noses in the bags? They never
put anything away, though, the little
varmits.
