  • NOPE!
    ARRRR! International Talk Like A Pirate Day - September 19th
    IN MARE IN COELO

    Comment


    • Some more free verse, with apologies to a traditional poem:

      One through ten at the Supermarket

      One is the number of surveys you must complete to receive a one in a million chance of "winning"
      Two are the lines that just opened after you've been 10 minutes in line
      Three are the number of pictures of different types of flour taken by some 20something wannabe baker
      Four are the times some 40something leaves her cart on the main aisle before cleverly walking counter-arrow,
      Five are the number of 24-packs of bottled water some dude buys
      Six are the number of milk containers some 60something gropes, agonizing which to buy
      Seven are the people reading the newspaper without buying it
      Eight are the number of "good" paper towel packages left
      Nine is the number of weeks since liquid hand soap was available
      Ten is the number of deli items the person ahead of you gets

          I see you've just been to Market Basket.

          • The one that really irritates me is the walking counter-arrow, while leaving the basket in either the front main aisle or the back main aisle. It's like "wearing a mask" but not covering your nose. I guess, it would be more honest to just go against the arrow, or to not wear the mask.

            • Yes, it was too wordy, sorry.

              In recompense I will not do a "Box Store" commentary, except,

              Six is the number of times the idiotic cashier tries to sign you up for the predatory credit card.
