I KNOW YOU DON’T LIKE SHOPPING, HARRY, BUT SMART PEOPLE SHOP. YOU WANNA SAVE MONEY? YOU SHOP FOR THE BEST PRICE. A SMART PERSON DOESN’T JUST DUMP STUFF IN THEIR CART CAUSE IT’S THERE AND THEY WANT IT!
I was speeding through the aisles of Meijer, while Craig waited in the car with our babies. Upon hearing this highly annoyed exclamation, I looked over and saw an elderly couple of (AT LEAST) 75yrs old. The woman’s face was filled with malice as she scolded her sulking husband, who shuffled along, three feet behind her. Old lady meant business! Of course, I, thinking it was cute, knowing Craig loathes having to go to 5 different stores for the best price of groceries, and that I’d make light of the situation, butted in on the public argument: “You two aren’t giving me any hope for me and my husband!” I audibly called, across the aisle, nearby people turning heads to chuckle. [CRICKETS]. Awkwarddddd. I felt my face burn an zoomed away. Okay Carolyn, no more butting-in on elderly couples’ arguments. It ain’t cute to them. lesson learned.
