People amaze me, you know that? The Stupidity, I mean. Today on my break I took a jaunt over to the GCSS, as it's friday, and friday means sushi day. The place was a friggin madhouse.
Anyhoo, it inspired me to compile a list of simple rules for grocery shopping.
- First and MOST IMPORTANT. If you lack the mental faculties necessary to grasp the subtle intricacies of the Self-Check out, then please, for your own health and safety, move over to another check out and let a TRAINED PROFESSIONAL help you. It's what they're paid for.
- I don't care if it says 1-8 items, 1-10 items or even 1-16 items. If you have enough groceries that you feel it necessitates a cart... GET THE HELL OUT OF THE EXPRESS LINE.
- Bulk items are complicated. All that weighing and typing of numbers at the check out eats up precious time. So instead of going to the bulk aisle to buy SIX FUCKING M&M's*... Throw caution to the wind and buy a bag.
*Combining this with irresponsible use of the self-check out nearly resulted in grocery related homocide today.
-Don't be a Hero. Don't invite people from other lines in front of you. No matter how nice you're being to that person, you're still a jerk to the 17 people behind you.
-Tourist dollars and local economy be damned. If you're a cottager, do your damn shopping in the city BEFORE you come here.
