A few days ago I was out running some errands, and Toney called and asked me to pick up some salad makin’s. So I stopped at a nearby grocery store on my way home, and could barely get into the place because of all the grills and patio furniture out front.
Do people really buy stuff like that at a grocery store? I’m not talking about a Super Wal-Mart, or a Mega Target, or whatever. This is just a regular grocery store, that sells regular grocery store stuff — for the most part.
But right now they have three or four different propane grills to choose from, and several large pieces of furniture, etc. And I just can’t imagine myself ever making the following statement: “Let’s see, I need to pick up a dozen eggs, some milk, …and heck, since I’m here I might as well buy a dining room table and hutch!”
Our baffroom contractor (the newest member of our family) told me he recently bought a GPS unit from Price Cutter, a grocery store in a neighboring town. A GPS unit! He also has an “expensive Garmin,” and guess which one he likes better? That’s right, the no-name (Sany?) model he purchased alongside carrots, and whatnot.
It’s not something I’ve ever done, or probably will ever do. The prices can’t be very good, can they? I mean, seriously.
But what about you? What’s the most unusual thing you’ve ever purchased from a regular grocery store? Tell us about it in the comments.
And this one’s incredibly short, for a host of reasons. Including this. But I’ll get back to it tomorrow, full-tilt.
See ya then!
