I made it out ALIVE!

I went to the grocery store the day before thanksgiving and have lived to tell about it! Holy Cow was it busy.

And I had an older lady snatch a pie right out of my hand! It was the only apple left....

Oh well....she was older she can have it. I will make my own later :P

Sounds like a really cut throat day at the mall!!, just like the day before Christmas...you are a very brave woman..I would never venture out to the store the day before a big event!

I must say, I wouldn't appreciate ANYONE grabbing an item right out of my hand. I wouldn't care if she was an older person. It seems like a lot of elderly people seem to think they can get away with ANYTHING, simply because they are old. That takes a lot of NERVE!

I agree. I do. And normally I would have said something. But today I just didnt feel like it. I dont know why..who knows. I guess she needed it more than me..or maybe I was thinking about my devils food cake at h ome lol

Sounds like the time I went to Toys R Us on Christmas eve to shop for my cousin's Santa stuff. I found the very last Rainbow Brite doll and someone smashed her cart into me and demanded that I give her the doll, becauswe she had "seen it first"!!! Needless to say, I did NOT give her the doll. I didn't argue with her, I did something that made her ever angrier. I laughed and walked away.

People can be brutal around the holidays!

I need to head up to the store for some basic things, like bread, but I totally forgot it's the day before Thanksgiving. I'm kind of afraid to go out! My husband is at the fire station today and said people are driving like maniacs. There are accidents everywhere. We just got maybe 3 inches of snow and people can't figure out how to drive in it!

I just can't believe that woman took the pie out of your hands. I would have let her have it and then taken something out of her cart! It would be funny just to see her reaction. You can have my pie, but I'm taking your rolls!!

LMAO....i might have..if i needed rolls. I like you just needed a few basics...

and the Pepsi...the Pie to me was just a thought. Something that looked yummy ...thats probably why I let her have it. I have a devils food cake i baked last night

ACK! I already braved the busiest Wal-Mart on the east coast, and I just realized that I have to go out again! I am looking at the recipe for Southern Comfort Sweet Potatoes, and it calls for two 29 oz cans, and I got a 40 oz can today. I guess I should have looked at the recipe BEFORE I went to get stuff to make it. Duh, huh!

This reminds me of a story my boss told us and a MOB of people waiting outside our gate for us to open the day after Christmas. Picture a tiny lady pacing back in forth like a cop giving a speech about behaving like adults, etc. She said one year she was pinned to a display unit behind her after opening the gate for 45 minutes. Another time there was a lady who grabbed a small tree and another had the decorative base, the lady with the tree was beating the lady with the tree to get the base.

That year I was on the end cash register and some young women 'parked' a very elderly lady at my end in her wheelchair and just loaded her lap with things. I mean the poor lady was burried! I felt bad till I heard her giving the orders on what to get!

oh my goodness!

remind me to never go Christmas shopping if i visit America or if i do remind to bring my riot gear

Australian shoppers shove a bit and there is definately some snide whispers going on when someone grabs the last $5 tshirt but that's about it, even that's too much for me

Ohhh... I went out grocery shopping today and there were CRAZY people all over the place!! It drove me absolutely crazy!! The older women were just running all over the place! I was standing in an aisle waiting for my mom and this older woman ran right into me and didn't even say a 'oh Im sorry' or anything! Man, some people were on SUCH a mission!!

, well I know I won't be going grocery shopping tomorrow! Although I was thinking about getting up and going Christmas shopping early, but there isn't anything good in the ads worth losing sleep over!

I went and got $140 worth of groceries tonight at about 5:30 pm. It wasn't too bad-very busy, but no overt rudeness.

The guy ahead of me at the check-out seemed to have only Doritos and beer. As the (very young) cashier says-have a good day, and Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thinking, he's going to sit around all day eating chips and drinking beer-darned right he's having a happy Thanksgiving!

Most amazing was the bagger-SHE BAGGED EVERYTHING PERFECTLY! I was tempted to ask if she was trained at the other grocery store in town (their only competition!), but I was good and kept my mouth shut!

Now I just have to get up early tomorrow and cook everything!

I'd hate to see what would have happened if the old lady grabbed your Pepsi.
post #24 of 26
I did my best to get everything on my grocery list yesterday, but didn't quite get everything. But...heh heh...I had my husband with me today for protection Yesterday when I was out were a lot of senior panthers - most very sweet and polite (and off balance so you really had to pass them carefully), today...rude, rude, rude.

One "lady" coming the wrong way down the costco aisle decided to turn her cart in front of me to get to a cross aisle without caring if she hit me, if she was in the way etc. I just looked at her as she began her turn and gave a "I can't believe you are doing this its so rude" laugh.

argh.
