Yesterday MacGyver and I went to Aldi to get some essentials, mainly milk. Aldi has the best price on milk in the entire area. They beat everyone’s price by at least a dollar. Currently it’s priced at 2.29 for a gallon but they’ve had their skim milk on sale for 99 cents on a few occasions, for a gallon people! And yes, I’m aware that I get a little too excited over the price of milk and I digress, the point is that MacGyver and I went to Aldi.
If you’ve never been there before, you may not know that you ‘rent’ the shopping carts by paying a quarter and then you get your quarter back when you return the cart. It’s part of the reason the prices are so low but it’s also the reason I was surprised to see a lady getting into her truck and just leaving her cart in the adjacent parking space, the space I was trying to pull in to.
My reaction was one of anger and I turned to MacGyver and said, ‘Who is so damn lazy that they would rather throw away a quarter than to walk 15 feet to the cart return, seriously?’
MacGyver’s reaction was a bit different, ‘Hurry up and pull the car in and grab that cart. We’re getting paid to shop, it’s our lucky day!’
Half Pint is running for office. No really, she is. Melissa Gilbert announced this week that she will be running for congress in Michigan.
The only thing that would make this better would be if Nellie Olsen ran against her! No wait, I’m wrong, this is way better.
Oh Melissa, if your friends could see you now!
I wish I had more for you but there is just nowhere to go after that video. WTF? It must be Wednesday!
Now it’s your turn, tell me about a wtf moment from your week.
