This afternoon I went to the supermarket to pick up a few things. I think I am the person who always picks the slowest check-out line. In my defense, it’s a little more difficult to choose a good line because of the pandemic.
I try not to get too close to people, which means lots of traffic jams at the check-out area. Therefore, you kind of have to get in the line that is convenient and close by. I thought I got lucky in that my line had one person waiting in front of me. However, I didn’t notice the amount of items in the lady’s cart… it turns out her family just moved into a new house this morning so they were stocking up on food. Her total (yes, I eavesdropped) was about $450!!! So you can imagine how long it took to ring up and bag.
Besides standing there silently cursing myself as I watched the shoppers in the adjacent lines being checked out quickly, I did notice some “Japanese-Style Peanuts”. I thought it was interesting to see the mixing of cultures here. Japanese style, packaged under the Mi Tienda brand of a Texas supermarket. Kind of cool!
But I was an idiot and didn’t buy any. Oh well, it’s just not my day.
I did spot this amazing cloud formation in the parking lot as I left, so that lifted my spirits a bit. 🙂
I hope you had a nice day!
