    An easy mistake to make, Burl does wear Snuggies.

    LOL@ My First Potty.


    Yeah Joy, the old get you to check out a random cart con.


    Come to think of it a childhood prank that brought a lot of giddy delight was to sneak items into a stranger’s cart at the supermarket.


    Hey! These canned pork brains in gravy aren’t on my list!?!?

    Canned pork brains in gravy? Wow. Haven’t seen that in a while. Sounds great. Right up there with tripe and mountain oysters in olive oil. Or my all-time favourite, lutefisk.

    and @ toenails.
    Mmmm! Your shopping sounds so much more delicious than mine. I’m putting back this fish and macaroni TV dinner and grabbing some pork brains and some mountain oysters (‘taste that fresh mountain air’) NOW! (I usually get the ‘tripe-free’ version to avoid risk of ‘really mad cow’ disease).
    Never tried lutefisk. Does it taste like chicken?

    Pity that guy didn’t let Burl and Joy keep his trolley – I would have loved to be in the next queue when they went through with all of this random baby stuff, realised what had happened, and started a fight with the checkout girl (because obviously it’s her fault). I bet they’re well known in Wal-Eye-Mart, and no-one steps into the queue behind them, because they argue about every single item ("look, the label on this tin has a tear in it – you’ll have to take 50% off’)

    And if the almost empty cart isn’t theirs???
    Does that mean the one full of baby stuff IS?


    It must be that young fellow’s fault, anyway, cos they HAD a cart, before he showed up with his diapers and baby potty.

    Hey, maybe he even put that stuff on top of their HoHo’s and clearance bin T-shirts, so he could buy them for himself.

    And after they spent 2 hours digging to find the only size XXXL “Staring is Caring” shirt for Burl! (He just outgrew the XXL.)

    These people are even too dim-witted for Wally World. >sigh< What’s so sad is that I’ve seen people like that in stores.

    When I was in boot camp they let us go to the PX a few times, but they would take the whole company together and give us x amount of time to buy what we needed.


    The PX was just for people confined to the base so it wasn’t very big, it just sold staples that we could keep in our barracks and some greeting cards, and stationary. It was too small to support carts (and we couldn’t keep enough to fill a cart). We used shopping baskets.


    One of the more common jokes was for someone to get a package of sanitary napkins and slip them into someone’s basket. Normally, he wouldn’t notice until he was laying his items out on the counter, of course in front of the cashier and everyone else.


    Of course, to me and my buddies, this would not be such an ordeal now, but to an 18-20 year old this was traumatic.

    @SusanSunshine

    Is that lone bottle in the cart a bottle of Brain Bleach?

    Shouldn’t that one item in their cart be a case of Slim-Fast?

    Then when they get to the cashier, they can tell him/her that they’re ‘buying it for a friend’.
