I’ve been Krogering—going to Kroger grocery stores—for a lot of years now. Since I currently live in Covington, Kentucky, I go to the one on Madison Avenue. See, I don’t always go down to the corner of happy and healthy (Walgreens/Covington). Sometimes I shake it up. Sometimes I don’t want to pay outrageous prices (Walgreens/Covington).
A friend and I went to Kroger on Wednesday afternoon and the store was packed—too packed. When the grocery store is like this, that’s when the stupid comes out in people or at least that’s when I notice it. You know what I’m talking about—those customers who block aisles, who think they own the damn store. There was one customer in there who was so bad at doing this; I decided to avoid one entire aisle just to get away from her.
I remember writing about grocery shopping rage, wrote about it in February of 2004. It was called “Adventures in the Grocery Store.” I wrote it for CityBeat, but apparently it’s no longer on their web site. It’s including in my Living Out Loud book however—just so you know.
Here’s another one I wrote for CityBeat back in April of 2010 called Chicken Liver. This is a better one to link to anyway as it’s less mean—just so you know that too.
