Friday Five: The Grocery Store

Life has been a bit crazy lately and I pushed my weekly grocery store trip off until yesterday. Bad. Idea. It was one of the worst shopping experiences of my life… here are the highlights lowlights:

1. I got my foot run over by an elderly couples’ shopping cart upon entering the store.

2. A woman on a motorized scooter didn’t look before backing up and nearly hit me. I hollered “Whoa!” to hopefully get her attention, and she stopped her scooter but never bothered to look at me. I quickly grabbed my produce and fled the area.

3. People don’t know how to not block aisles when they shop.

4. The store rearranged its layout recently and now I don’t know where anything is.

5. I couldn’t buy tomato wraps as I wanted to because every single package was expired. I dug through all of them and they had expired on Wednesday. When I handed a pack of them to the stockboy and explained that they were all expired, he looked at me like he didn’t know what an expiration date was until I waved the package of wraps at him and said, “Someone should know about this.” Unfortunately… that’s not the first time they’ve had a full stock of expired wraps at that store. Yes, I will be writing to them about it.

I wish I could shop in the middle of the night, but I value my sleep too much. I will be icing my foot and investing in some steel-toed shopping shoes!

Do you have any crazy grocery shopping stories? Please share them with me!
