new definition of lazy…jagoff in Dayton
We have had a few posts about misplaced grocery cart jagoffery due to laziness. But this really does take laziness to another level. How many items fit in this basket? And, after you check out, unless they’re pop can cube cartons that weigh a ton and that you’re supposed to somehow pick up with your two fingers in those little pre-cut finger holes, aren’t those items placed in bags??
Does one really need to take the basket of goodies all the way to the car? (Maybe the shopper was Little Red Riding Hood and she was snatched by the big bad Coupon-seeking wolf.)
Isn’t there an old nursery rhyme about this?
A grocery store basket
I wrote a letter to my love
And on the way I dropped it,
I dropped it,
I dropped it,
And on the way I dropped it.
So then I just put my basket down in the mulch because I had dropped the letter which meant there was no need for the other items I bought to mail it like stamps, an envelope and a special ink pen but then when I got home, just like the grocery lists that I make and can’t find once I actually get to the store, I realized I had put it in my pocket.
(I think that’s how it goes. If not, it’s pretty damned close… especially the part of never being able to find the little scrap paper of grocery store notes that I had made before the trip but then find AFTER I get back home.)
In any event. The grocery stores have to pay people to walk around the hot/cold parking lots rounding up carts and now they have to round up baskets? Why don’t you do like the normal people do… after it’s empty, slide that basket underneath the odd nook of the register counter and give it a little kick to get it out of the way, Ya Jagoff!
