Shopping At The Giggly Piggly
|Grocery shopping at the Giggly Piggly today I went. Like shopping there I do not. Those automatic doors with the motion detectors it has. Short I am, so see me, the motion detector does not. Open, the doors would not.|
Up I jumped, and my arms I waved. Still nothing. My cane I waved around. Nothing. Finally an old lady I picked up with the Force and in the air I waved her around. The trick, that did. Later, Windu pointed out that just slide the doors open with the Force, I could have. Hmm, yes. Remember that for next time, I will.
Find the Believe That Butter It Is Not, I Can Not I could not. Important that item was. Using real butter I have stopped, because getting a little pot belly Kenobi is. Besides, a coupon I had.
The teenager stocking the milk I asked, "Where the Believe That Butter It Is Not, I Can Not is?"
"Find the Believe That Butter It Is Not, I Can Not I can not. Point me to the Believe That Butter It Is Not, I Can Not can you?"
*sigh* "Tell me where is the Believe That Butter It Is Not, I Can Not can you not?"
"What're you lookin for, butter?"
"No! Use butter I can not. A substitute I need."
"Oh, you know what? We have this great product. It's called I Can't Believe It's Not Butter."
Then, long the line at the register was. Fortunately, reading material there was. But way more about Brad/Angelina/Jennifer than I wanted, I learned.
Finally, her cart the lady in front of me emptied.
The last item, the cashier scanned. "That will be 100 credits."
"Hmm," the lady said, "I only got 20 credits. How much is it without this Snicker's bar?"
Scan. "99 credits. 79 credits to go."
"Ok, how much is it without this pack of gum?"
Scan. "98.5 credits."
Aaaaaah! On and on like this it went. Stand it anymore I could not. I yelled, "Look! Happen to notice did you that prices on the shelves there are?! Or maybe given up entirely on Math you have?!"
Like that, the lady did not. Respond well to constructive criticism, some do not.
At last, my turn it was.
"Paper or plastic, sir?"
Hmm, kill trees or clog landfills. Difficult choice it was. Then it occured to me - if more trees we kill, more room for landfills there will be. So paper I chose.
My hand I waved at the cashier. "Double-coupon day it is."
"It's double-coupon day today."
Some compensation for my aggravation I needed.
