This weekend, I made a quick stop at Wal-Mart after I went to the new gym I joined (more on that later). It was pouring and of course, I managed to park right beside a massive puddle so as soon as I jumped out of the car my feet were soaked. I ran in to get a few things, quickly running out of room in my basket. I didn’t want to put the eggs on top of the bread so I went to move the bread and this happened…..
Umm… did it just rip randomly as I tried to move it? Did someone slit the plastic earlier? Did they need a snack while shopping so opted to snatch a piece of bread? I really see no logical explanation for the bread just falling out of the bag! I returned the bread to the guy stocking the shelves and got myself a new loaf! This reminded me of a couple other stories from trips to the grocery store!
We moved last September so we could be closer to Anson’s work downtown Toronto. Whenever you move you have to find all the important places like the schools, parks, grocery stores, banks and obviously, Starbucks. Luckily, all those things are within walking distance of our house!
The first grocery store I went into was Food Basics. I grabbed a couple things including some makeup remover wipes. I’m really not sure why I bought them because it is something I never use (I’m the one who basically never washes her makeup off at night ….don’t follow my example, kids!). That night I went to use one of the wipes and when I opened the container someone had already removed the seal and had very obviously taken half the wipes. EWW! Who does that?! Did they have a makeup emergency while buying their bread and milk?
I switched over to No Frills which I like way better, anyhow (hello, President’s Choice Decadent Chocolate Chip Cookies and Fudge Crackle Ice Cream)! One of the first things I noticed was that they LOCK UP THE CANDY! Maybe they have had a lot of stealing?! I mostly think they’re just looking out for my health because I can literally never buy candy at the grocery store. Even when I am determined that I am getting that package of Twizzlers (my fave!), I can never find anyone who has the key to open that mysterious gate! Maybe they don’t even have a key! It’s a seriously cruel joke but at least they’re preventing me from the extra pounds from M&M and licorice. Thank you, No Frills!
Anyone ever had something weird happen at the grocery store?
Do they lock up the candy where you shop?!
What’s your favourite kind of candy?
