Helpful hints for grocery shopping for Thanksgiving

  I really do love my job, it lets me see I'm actually smarter then I give myself credit for.

 First off, when you are planning on getting your free turkey with you store rewards card, don't come in on Thanksgiving Tuesday and expect to get the 20 pounder, those are long gone, be happy if you found one for 15 pounds. Don't complain to the cashier, it's not their fault. Failure to plan on your part doesn't give you the right to be mad at me.

    Also on that same day, don't buy a frozen turkey and ask me Do you think it will be defrosted by Thursday? I'm going to guess no, but call the turkey hot line that's what they're there for.

    Don't ask the kid working grocery what bread, other then white bread, can you use to make your stuffing. You lucked out this time, you got my son and he's watched me make the stuffing, so he actually had a clue. Next time you won't be so lucky and the kid will point you to the Stove Top and tell you to have a nice day.

  Now I took off tonight (the night before Thanksgiving) because I don't think I can hold my sarcasm in all night long while people who have no business being in a grocery store (really ladies, this is the night you're going to send your poor man in to pick a few things up???) look lost and get mad when they can't find cans of cranberries, or the French's Onions to make green bean casserole. Once again failure to plan ahead of time, doesn't make this my fault, so don't take it out on me.

  To those of you who bought your turkeys when you were supposed to, got all your grocery shopping done last weekend and if for some reason you still needed to pick up one last thing and still had a smile on your face, thank you. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!! I'll try not to elbow you on Black Friday morning ;-p

This is a fantastic view of the situation, I don’t think I’ve quite seen it from that perspective before.
