$10 off coupon day

I tried to go grocery shopping last night (my cat is going to starve!). I had to drive around looking for a spot at 7 pm. last night. That has never happened to me.

I got inside and it looked like their was soccer mom/ghetto family/hillbilly/fat man prison break! There was bumper-to-bumper cart traffic, the check out lines were backed up all the way down the isles. I stayed about 20 minutes, grabbed a few groceries, decided to abandon cart and got the fuck out of there.

It was $10 off coupon day and it's always like this on Thursdays. AFTER I got home my mom was like, "Oh yeah, it's always bad." Who sends their kids, their own flesh and blood out into a grocery store war? She sent me out there knowing there would be cart ramming and fighting spot fights.

An old lady, coming up the opposite way, almost took the spot I was waiting for. I was ready to throw down over this parking spot. Luckily, I was quicker than her and she drove away in fear.

That's right, I stole a parking spot from an old woman. And I don't really feel bad about it. She can have it for the REST OF HER LIFE when she shows up on Thursdays and spends her precious last YEARS waiting in line.

    Hilarious! Try going to Meijer on a sunday ~ not such a good idea! It is absolutely outrageous; like they're giving away free milk or something. You'll round the corner and crash into someone else's cart. Crazy grocery shoppers.
