Right Where It Should Be

More than once I have bemoaned the fact that my mouth works faster than my brain does.
Lightening speed faster.
Case in point:
Regular Customer (and when I say regular she shops like 3/4 times a day): Where is aisle 8?
We were in aisle 5.
Me: After aisle 7.
Customer looks at me and I look at customer.
I point to the sign that says 8.
Customer: Oh right. Thank you.
I will leave it there.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom

  1. People are so strange aren’t they in stores, especially supermarket stores. Have shoppers become more stupid or have they simply lost the ability to count or to navigate or just to use the matter between their ears? I think the only time l have to ask for something is when l REALLY can’t find it – using all the logic l have l thoroughly scour the shop before asking for directions. If l can’t find it – that normally means it’s out of stock. Then when l ask l am waiting for the “Sorry that’s out of stock sir” or the “We don’t stock that anymore”.

    But Signs are there for a reason even the big effing numbered ones!

    … and yet, still we hear tales time and time again of the Silly Brigade.
