Shopping Experience

Never a dull moment at Kroger. A lady slipped and hit her head on one of those metal “hot, whole chicken” stands. Everyone stared about ten seconds before rushing over to her. And by everyone, I mean about twenty people herded around her. She sat up and seemed fine, but an ambulance came and carried her off on a cot anyway. The Kroger managers were actually running throughout the store. Worried about the lady or about being sued? We’ll find out.

I enjoy going to Albertson’s and having Eduardo check me out. He checks me out everytime and our conversation is usualy very enthralling. In our weekly 3 minute conversation, he has told me about his family, job woes, I’ve told him about my family, and my couponing. When I start putting my items on the rubber rolling mat, we pick up right where we left off. This time it was about being blessed. He told me not to be worried about the week I just had, because a new one is starting and who knows what joys God has in store for us. Ah, Eduardo. I walk out of Albertson’s smiling every Sunday.
