RBO -- all kinds of shopping...

  • The Farmer's Market is contact shopping -- with hippies. Why, if you are old and slow, do you have to go??
  • Why don't 16-24 year old boys wear pants that fit? Really, I don't want to see your nasty boxers when I'm trying to buy a season of Eureka at Best Buy.
  • Hubby came to the Farmer's Market with me this morning -- so, he then had to go to Best Buy to shake off the 'hot, sweaty, crowded & old' cooties.
  • Why can't Petsmart have cat grass in stock??
  • If you're old -- as in, dottering, probably shouldn't drive and Cub foods scares you -- why go to the store on Saturday morning with the screaming kids and screaming mothers?
I've kind of had it with people for the day -- time to hibernate.

I know exactly how you feel... Just spent the better part of the afternoon at a trunk-yard-sale with a kazillion screaming kids. Not fun!

Yeah, old folks don't need to eat!

Saturday is the best day to see people at their worst when shopping. You have all of my sympathy!!!

The point isn't that old folks shouldn't go to the store -- rather, if you're retired, why not go to the store when it's less crowded -- like, all week when folks are working?

Also, in our suburb -- if you avoid typical rush hours, there isn't much traffic during the day and there's a lot on the weekends.... so, if they aren't great drivers, then it makes more sense to go on Friday rather than Saturday...
