Before You Panic

If the streets are deserted, before you start to panic about the Zombie Apocalypse or setting extra places for the four horsemen, check the calendar. Is it Sunday?
If it is, you're fine. The world is not coming to an end.
Everyone is at Superstore. And though their manners may make them easy to mistake for Zombies (from any movie, some are the slow moaning ones that are fairly ineffectual and some are the crazy running screaming hardcore ones), don't worry your silly head. They're just assholes.
On an unrelated note, there is nothing I need badly enough to ever make me try "just running in to grab a few things" on a Sundday again. (If I run out of toilet paper, I'll hold it until Monday.)

Superstore was in fact retarded on Sunday.

You weren't caught up in that rabble too, were you?

Yes, our current financial situation is such that we have started to shop wherever has the best coupons that week.

So this week we saw the $30 off if you bought $250 coupon at Stupidstore and decided to stock the pantry right up with nonperishables.

For the record it's close to impossible to fit $250 worth of groceries in those miniature fucking carts they insist on having there, especially when you are stocking up on soup and hamburger helper.

hahaha... You're talking to a long time Superstore shopper. Being broke makes it one of the only place I can shop. That being said, I'm still never going there on a Sunday again.

I've never been on a Sunday. I'm a Safeway on a Wednesday Shopper. Which means, I shop with old people. I always mean to go on another day because they make me homicidal, but I always go on Wednesday.

hahaha... I'm usually a Wed. shopper too. Wed. afternoon is usually pretty dead at Superstore. Also, aside from what Sunday shopping does to me, I've discovered the art of grocery shopping Zen.
