Sean has this theory that if we don't use a shopping cart, we will buy less at the store. The problem is, by the end of our trip, we both look like this (x's 10):
Umm, it kiiiind of drives me a little crazy.
As we were leaving Costco the other night, we both couldn't see where we were going as we headed to the checkout line. And not only that, but we're totally the grocery store weirdos.
Everyone knows Costco's system where the cashier loads your paid for items into the cart in front of you and then your cart goes to the person behind you for their items. I got a little awkward when the cashier was looking everywhere for our cart.
"We didn't use one."
"Oh, wow. How did you get all these groceries here?"
Sorry, person behind us, you don't get a cart. You're going to have to carry your groceries to your car with your hands and then probably balance some on your shoulder and your head, just like we do every time we go grocery shopping. I hope you have a good inner ear.
We got in the car afterwards and I asked him if there's anything I do that drives him nuts. There has to be a handful of things, yet he told me there was nothing. Really smart but kind of not because how am I ever supposed to fix those things that I know have to bug him?
Or maybe he's just Mother Teresa. I married Mother Teresa and now I feel horrible for getting mad about him trying to help us out.
Sean said he just wanted to experiment to see if we actually saved money by doing this, so I'm asking for a little help. Anyone out there who is trying to save a little and has extremely long appendages and would not mind testing this out for us? It might save us from a few tense moments. Just make sure the sample size is big enough or otherwise he won't think it's valid and I'll be 80 years old juggling a box of Cheerios in one arm and popcorn in the other. Cheers.
*Sean and I actually laugh and joke about this all the time, so I'm not really mad. I'm just a little fake mad a little kind of annoyed mad. He's the best sport!
