Rotten Beef….What's Eating You?

  • Apr 20

    I had to go to the grocery store tonight to get just a couple things. In and out, just what I planned. But somehow someone always changes my plans.

    I get in a checkout lane where a customer ahead of me forgot something and had to have the bag boy run and get one. So I jump to the “Express” line. Boy that was sure a mistake. The woman in front of me wanted to pay for her groceries with a paper check. She was from out of state and the cashier had to call for approval and then it took the lady what seemed like forever to write the check and enter it in her check register.

    So my question is, who pays by paper check in the grocery store anymore?

    Not to sound prejudice, but the woman must have been in her 60’s at least. And when I though about it, it occurred to me, I could not remember a time when I saw a younger generation writing out a check while shopping. I said to the cashier when it was my turn, “that is probably the last generation you will ever see pay by a paper check when shopping”. She apologized and then agreed.

    As you may have heard the Bush Administration said each and every one of us would now get a nice rebate. If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China. If we spend it on gasoline it will all go to the Arabs, if we purchase a computer it will all go to India, if we purchase fruit and vegetables it will all go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatamala, if we purchase a good car it will all go to Japan, if we purchase useless crap it will all go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy.
    We need to keep that money here in America, so the only way to keep that money here at home is to buy prostitutes and beer, since those are the only businesses still in the US.
