Rotten Beef….What's Eating You?

    How many WalMart shoppers do you know that can count to 20? Run a self-checkout? Me neither. On my recent trip to the mega mart tonight, I had been waiting in line at least 15 minutes before I took this photo.

    If 15 minutes is fast, I’d hate to be in the slower checkout lane! It’s bad enough they offer you the option to checkout in English here in the good ‘ol US of A, but then to have people who can’t comprehend how to scan a bar code over the scanner? One of life’s mysteries we will probably never understand!

    I saw this while walking down the sidewalk today. I thought to myself, I guess this Michael Jackson CD was “Bad” after all!

    The Strawberry Festival is in town and oh boy is it always a barrel of fun! It’s hard to decide what the bigger draw is. The rides, the exhibits or the food!

    This trip out I noticed so many more things that were deep fried. The standard deep fried ice cream, deep fried pickles, deep fried Oreos and Snickers and a couple different things this year. Deep fried Coke, Deep fried Butter (yes BUTTER) and the one I was just chomping at the bit to get, the Krispy Kreme Donut Burger.

    This baby was a pure beef patty fried just the way you like it, greasy and fatty, with all the fix-ins, sandwiched between to delicious Krispy Kreme Glazed Donuts! Mmmmmmm! Homer Simpson would be in heaven.

    Now I’m not one to turn down different types of cuisines, but after seeing all the delightful offerings at the fair this year, I am convinced that someone could (or soon will) sandwich or deep fry dog crap and market it, and it will become a fast food sensation. Just saying….

    I’m not a very dense person but sometimes I just have a hard time getting a grasp on life. For example, my kid was going to a birthday party for one of their friends. I took them to the store to get a present. When paying for the purchase at the checkout lane, the cashier offered me two receipts. I thought one was one of those customer surveys to win a $1,000 but it turns out to be a “gift” receipt.

    Now call me old fashioned, but isn’t the purpose of a “gift” to surprise or even delight someone you know? So we now give “gifts” and offer receipts in case the gift recipient thinks your gift sucks? Clothing I can understand (sizing issues) but toys, CD’s and even electronics?

    Someone ever thinks of returning one of the latter gifts I just mentioned and it would be the last gift I ever gave them!
