I love my grocery store


mumma to KMC:
Well it isn't MY grocery store, but I love the local grocery store.

Quick back ground, the grocery closest to my house is the run down store of a national chain of stores. There isn't a lot of selection and if you want something "fu-fu-y" such as Marscapone Cheese, you have to move on to another store. However, it is great for a quick in and out place and they have milk and ice cream same as every other store.

Yesterday I went to the store for a few WIC items. As stated in a previous thread, WIC items are split up on to different vouchers. One voucher might have milk, eggs, cereal, and juice another might have milk, eggs, cheese and juice. The ones I had left to use for the month yesterday were my son's infant cereal voucher, milk and juice only and a voucher for a single juice. I knew even though there were only a few items, I would be a while in line. I was also purchasing non-WIC items for that well important well rounded diet.

Alas, the point of my story and I do have one. The store normally has U-Scan open, Express and one "regular" lane open. I can't use the U-Scan with WIC, nor the Express lane, so I got in to the regular line. The line was pretty long and the 2 people in front of me all had carts over flowing with groceries. I didn't mind, my ds was behaving and we were playing games. (Even if he weren't being a good little guy, what could I do?) Well, about 3 minutes after getting in to line, the checkout manager came over to me and whispered that lane 5 was opening if I wanted to step over. Heck yeah would I. I looked at the person in front of  me and noticed about 1/3 of their items were already on the belt, so off I went. The people behind me tried to cut but the cashier said I was there first.

Great experience, just don't get me started on the bagger....

Very nice....and kudos to the cashier for having the backbone to not let someone cut in on you...

And I forgot to mention, with my 3 bags of groceries, the cashier asked if I needed help to my car!
