Can anyone relate to this "job" that's never ending?


Buying groceries can be very funny

It takes a considerable amount of money

Sometimes,  it's a very stressful job

In the presence of a devious mob

Women snatch cereal from your child's hand

As they check from their list the chosen brand

They scamper down the isles

With check-out lines that stretch for miles

You have all your coupons in tact

And hope all your groceries have been sacked

As you're leaving,  what do you spy?

A 'Mrs. Bairds' label out of the corner of an eye

It's been smashed like a pancake

Oh,  for chrissake!

Can't  they refrain from smashing the bread

I guess,  it's more fun to flirt with the checkers instead.

Thank goodness, I opted out of that weekly ritual twenty years ago and haven't missed it, except, that cute little Asian woman dressed in office clothes used to see every Friday night. it looks like shopping with kids is a real scream.
