You Just Know It’s a Bad Sign When…

There are NO, None, Nada, Zero shopping carts available when you walk into Kroger’s.

Then I went even further: I had a CONVERSATION with the Check-Out Lady (Whom I discovered was from Ukraine.) Could have talked to her for hours. What a wonderfully articulate Lady she was. (and pretty too) But, alas there were people behind me needing to check out as well…

Maybe next time.

    We were poor. Those assholes took the fish food off my table. We had to eat baked potatoes as a main course.
    (But we were young, happy, in love, and…
    Here is the story, in case you have never seen it:

  5. We just got all new carts, including 2 doz kiddie carts (child sized) and a doz of those car-carts the kids ride in… we got them in March. We are now down to 12 kiddie carts and 7 car-carts….

  6. They have signs everywhere at Kroger’s which read (and I am paraphrasing here because my memory has left the building)

    “If You Attempt To Take OUR Shopping Carts Out of OUR Parking Lot, The Wheels Will Lock And We Will Be Forced to Take Your First Born”
