The Cabbage Nazi

This is all I wanted

so I go to the grocery store this morning, and they have the entire produce department roped off with a big sign that says:



half of what I need comes from the produce department, so here I am, staring at the cabbage that I need, that is within reach, but I can't have it? Are you KIDDING me?

So you mean, I have a cart FULL of groceries, but I have to pay for them, load them up and DRIVE to ANOTHER grocery store to get my produce.. when it’s RIGHT THERE???

Their response?Yes mam, I’m sorry, but this section is closed for remodeling.

Tell me, what grocery store remodels their entire produce section at 9:00 in the morning?

Of course, I’m keeping my composure, but I just had to ask..Would you mind just handing me one of those heads of cabbage that your standing right next to, so that I don’t have to travel across town and leave my milk and frozen food in the car while I search for cabbage elsewhere?

He has to go ask the manager.. are you KIDDING ME??

Listen Mr. your messing with dinner tonight, this could get ugly.. just hand me the cabbage and no one gets hurt!!

so he comes back and RELUCTANTLY hands me the cabbage. You understand sir, that this is going straight on my blog..because that's what I do, I blog.

I blog about what makes me happy

and I blog about what makes me crazy

THIS sir, makes me CRAZY!!!!

People read my blog sir


You understand that this may not cast you in the most flattering light don't you?


Ok, so I really didn't say any of that.. but I wanted to.
