Avoid Wal-Mart on a Saturday Afternoon
I like to go grocery shopping early in the morning. This allows me to avoid crowds and have the rest of the day to do things. Today we made our lists late and after driving to Tallahassee, and grabbing some lunch it was almost 2:00 p.m. before I pulled into the parking lot.
The place was packed. I grabbed a buggy and the right front wheel had a huge flat spot. I grabbed another. This one had a rear wheel that refused to turn. The third one’s handle was covered in an unknown sticky substance. The fifth one was decent, and I walked into the human maelstrom known as Wal-Mart on a Saturday afternoon.
The place was crawling with elderly people cruising in their motorized chairs. I did my best to avoid them but constantly got stuck behind a 90 year old woman who looked at several boxes on the same product before putting one in her basket.
Following another 30+ minute drive home it took me another 45 minutes to bring everything inside and away. It was 5:00 p.m. and the day was over. The entire adventure made me want to move closer to a grocery store in either Thomasville or Tallahassee.
