Tales from the Supermarket

No, the Dunkin Donut carts are NOT supposed to house your 3 year old on top of the little plastic truck roof. Our floors are cement, you moron. Do you hear the promo that plays every 10 mins that says we equip each cart with a safety belt? That's so you use them instead of letting your child stand in the seat or climb from front to back as they like. Idiot.


No. It is definitely NOT a good idea to let your two year old stand in the back of the shopping cart, holding on for his life with his little stick fingers, as you decide to drop the cart down a 6 inch curb. Yes, the horrified look on my face WAS directed Right. At. You. You have no idea how glad I was when you decided (after, no doubt, seeing the abject HORROR and DISBELIEF on my face right before the attempt) to scoop up said toddler and place him on your hip. I am not sure if I reminded you of your wife or your mother-in-law as I burned holes into your eyes but I hope it made you pee a little. Do you even have a brain in there? Cement. Road. Fractured skull?

Really? Your drooling, sneezing, snotting 8 month old doesn't really want that toy they've been teething and coughing all over throughout the store? Why, thank you. Watch me take it from you with two fingers, while giving a little side-eye (can you blame me?), tossing it into a plastic bag and then sanitizing my hands with some Purell (which may not kill the darned germs anyway, thanks!) Do you really think the sodden mess you handed me should be put back on a shelf for some other unsuspecting child to gnaw on and get your little darlings nasty virus?

Okay. So you see something dripped onto the converyor, first you touch it, they you rub your fingers together with it, then you sniff it, touch it again and then taste it and ask me "what is this"? How the hell would I know? 25 people just loaded up their stuff onto that belt, one after another, until it was finally your turn. It could be anything. My guess, however, would be meat juice. Uncooked meat juice. Maybe you should taste it again and see.

Um...okay Mr. Crazyhair, if you want to put your 50% off "becauseyestheyarethatold" turkey legs up under your shirt instead of in a bag, go for it. Hope you have your receipt.

Little old lady in the hair curlers. Everytime I see you in the store, you're hair is in those curlers. Is it a look? or do you have somewhere really stompin' to go every afternoon, just curious. Thanks for being a little weird, but friendly.

Who did you meet this week?

My beef is when the cashier tells the customer the total, and the customer looks totally surprised that they have to pay! So THEN they dig out their checkbook, ask the date, write the name of the store... Ugh, what have you been doing for the last twenty minutes in line??? Puhleez, people, get your act together!!!

THIS!! And then the customer says "How did it come to xxx amount?? I didn't buy that much!" And then they ask you to show them the items on the computer screen one by one, and show them where the tax is added in etc. etc. Eventually they realize that yes indeed they did spend that much....and finally decide to pay you. All the while muttering and shaking their head.

Similar..I get kids who will owe me $4.00, they hand me a $10 to put on their account (so now they have $6)...buy lunch ($2), drink($1) and a snack($1) (because they *just* put all this money on their account that day and now have $2.00 left. So I will get...what do you mean I only have $2.00..I just gave you $10.
So I have to go through pulling up their account and explaining where all their money went.

I admit, most of the customers are very nice and we chat a little bit as I boopboop the merchandise, but holy heck, you come across some lulus.

Oh, and if you need to pay with your food stamp card, some cash and then a debit card along with your 20 coupons (where about 5 of them aren't for items you actually bought)...you might not want to get into the express lane. Just saying. I see more deathlooks in the express line than anywhere.

I love it when people sit on the food stands. Especially the refrigerated coolers where pre-packed meat, cheese, etc is stored.

Why yes I want to purchase that meat that is under your bum now!

sounds like you were in the same store with me the other day. I was in produce and I had gotten 1 large bunch of unripe bananas ( we use them for smoothies) and was doing the rest of the shopping, when some old bat reached into my cart and tried to take my bananas because "they only had small overripe one left and mine looked better" When I told her no. she got mad at me and told me "apparently your mother did not teach you to respect my elders" so I told her "apparently her mother did not teach her not to touch other peoples stuff She didnt like that very much!

I am just about to leave for the grocery store. I cannot say I am looking forward to the expedition.

I hope you pee'd a little. That's the best!

Did they really lick it, seriously? I don't even like to touch the cart handles (which is why I now shop on-line).
