I Was So Wrong About Going To The Grocery

I was dreading my trip to the grocery yesterday afternoon.  I even tweeted this before I left.

However, once I got inside our Kroger, which was hopping, I realized that they had things well in hand.  Lots of carts available.  Shelves stocked.  Oodles of samples.  Extra cashiers.  As well as…

a woman employee dressed in her usual uniform…

wearing a white silk sash a la Miss America & a glitzy rhinestone tiara on her head…

wandering around the store helping everyone find what they needed.

Who was this woman with the gracious demeanor, sincere smile, wave of a beauty pageant contestant and endless knowledge of the store?

As her sash clearly stated, she was: Miss Information.  Of course!

    1. Polly, they realized. Everyone– employees & most customers– were laughing about it. The only customer I saw who was not taken with this woman was a boy about 5 y.o. who just glared at her. Which was hilarious to me.

      1. BTW, I did what I plan to be my last trip to Walmart until after the first of the year. Pretty sure I can live without going back even if I have to pay more at the local store. I hate shopping this time of year.

  1. What a lovely idea! I went on Monday, and the crowds were manageable, but I do hate how they have so much product clogging up the aisles, so that two carts cannot pass each other. It annoys me on a regular shopping trip, but when they KNOW the store is going to be packed, it just seems like foolishness.

  2. I had to go to 2 grocery stores today. It went better than I thought. Btw I stumbled on your blog from J of Thinking About but I’m getting deja vu. Did you have another blog a few years ago? I may have followed you when I was blogging over at Southern Suburbia. If not, still enjoying reading your blog.

    1. Joan, yes I’ve had a couple of blogs before this one. I like this one the best because I’ve let myself just talk about whatever I feel like babbling about. I’m happy that you’ve found me again. Welcome.

  3. That is awesome! I hate going to the store the day before Thanksgiving, although I was there yesterday and it was OK. And if I can’t find something, I get VERY frustrated.

    1. Margaret, I tell you Miss Information knew everything about the store. It was great. Plus she had a bubbly personality so people felt comfortable asking her questions. No frustrated customers in this store.
