Today at 2:30 I decided it would be a good idea to drag all the kids to both Walmart and Target super stores. I had to have them at Tucker’s baseball practice by 5:30 dressed, fed dinner, and all the stuff packed for four hours at the ballpark in 100 degree heat. Needless to say I was in a hurry. We raced through Walmart and jumped in line at the first checkout closest to the door, you know line #1, the one next to the super fast self checkout.
I have a full overflowing cart and 6 children all in line also, when a woman, who looked exactly like the woman in the picture below, gets in line behind us with a single box of wheat thins. She was ranting and raving about something on the phone and was clearly in a hurry. I tried multiple times to get her attention and show her that I also had coupons to be rung up, along with the cart full of groceries, and to suggest she go over to one of the four open ‘fifteen or less items’ registers. But she refused to look at me.
When the cashier got to my coupons and started putting them in, the woman freaked out and snatched her crackers off the line knocking the gum rack down and marched over to the self check out yelling at me, VERY loudly.
I finished checking out and looked over to see that her box of crackers refused to be rung up and they had to call a manager to go get her another box…. So she ended up in line two people longer than if she had stayed behind me and was still freaking out. I hope her day got better!
From Walmart we raced to Target and and ran through the store trying to not loose a child, which was a miracle considering how packed the place was. I drug them out to the car, counted heads and raced home arriving at 5pm, just in time to throw them back in the car for the baseball game.
Above is everything I got completely FREE today! The only two things missing from my free stuff picture? The two gallons of milk that I got FREE and left on the bottom of my cart in the Target parking lot!
But the good thing is I called Target when I realized what I did and they told me to come in tomorrow with my receipt and they would give me two more gallons! It is a hassle to go back in but at least it was milk and not a child!
