Food Shopping Agony
It is a good thing I did not have Patricia this weekend. She would have seen a side of her father that I do not like showing. Unfortunately, I tend to show this side often when I go food shopping.
I don’t know if it’s something in the music the supermarkets play over their loud speakers or if there is something in the air, but the moment people walk through those automated doors and into the store, they become retarded. Sometimes this includes the staff.
I don’t understand where people think they can get off with walking with a shopping cart down the middle of the aisle. Then there’s the person who cuts in front of your cart, stops, grabs a box of Pop-Tarts, walks, realizes he grabbed the wrong box, stops, and exchanges the Pop-Tarts.
Then there are those annoying store displays in the aisles. Supermarkets sell enough stuff and have enough space to sell their stuff that they don’t have to set up displays in aisles.
If I am elected President, I will push for legislation making sure nobody goes through this type of shopping experience again. I will mandate that shoppers get a cart-pushing license before using one in a store. This includes safe operating procedures and learning the rules of the aisle. There will also be a simple math quiz to make sure shoppers with 27 items are not in the “Ten Items or Less” register.
These simple steps will ensure a pleasant shopping experience for everybody. A little common courtesy can go a long way, but only in unobstructed aisles.
