Why is it that the threat of snow makes people completely insane?!
It’s almost 3:30pm and we are scheduled to get about 4 inches of snow here in the Philadelphia area.
You would think that someone said we were getting 400.
People are out and about, and the level of rudeness is turned all the way up.
Let’s start at Costco.
Stupid me decided to make a trip to Costco at 11am. I figured it wouldn’t be too crowded, and I was actually right. So I easily parked near the door. By the time I came out 40 minutes later, the parking lot was jamming.
The second I started walking towards my car, a woman put her blinker on and jetted towards my parking spot.
That’s fine, but you better be patient because I have a bruised tailbone and it’s going to take a me a little while to unload. Not to mention that I actually like to return the cart instead of leaving it in the middle of the lot.
I guess Mercedes SUV didn’t get the memo as she rolled her eyes and inched closer and closer to my car. I SEE YOU!!!!!!!!!!! AND IF YOU JUST WOULD HAVE PARKED SOMEWHERE ELSE INSTEAD OF WAITING, YOU WOULD BE KNEE DEEP IN 7 LAYER DIP and HOT POCKET SAMPLES BY NOW.

On the positive side, Costco had a great selection of affordable fresh berries. I had been craving them, but they are so expensive at the store.
I thoroughly enjoyed every bite of this fruit bowl and the cool whip on top. I also would have enjoyed hurling cool whip in that ladies’ face if I had the chance.
Up Next, the local grocery store.
I’m a glutton for punishment, so I decided to go to the grocery store this afternoon for a few more things (tortillas, crystal light, brown paper lunch bags, and pretzels) (???)
This time I parked really far away. I even prepared myself for long lines at checkout. Especially when I saw that the self checkouts were broken.
What I didn’t prepare myself for was the woman in line behind me, who was RAMMING ME WITH HER CART. I only have 4 items so BACK OFF! I don’t need your metal deathwagon jamming into my left leg every time the cashier scans at item. It’s not going to make this process faster. You’re not going to squeeze anymore items on the belt by pushing me out of the way. And if you think I’m not capable of throwing this US Weekly at you, you are surely mistaken.

Hmm..this is hard. I guess the rage helped me to work up an appetite for this delicious lunch?
What a crazy afternoon! And I still have yet to see one flake of snow…
Do you find that people are wacko when there is a storm coming?
Is your area expecting snow today/tonight?
