Now, I know that Festivus was over two weeks ago, but I have to air a grievance today.
So, I’m gonna keep in line with tradition and say, “I’ve got alot of problems with you people!” Specifically, those of you who shop at the 23rd and Madison Safeway and don’t know what to do with your basket when you’re finished. Tonight I counted nine baskets aimlessly left around the parking lot, just waiting to slam into my car. Three of the baskets were within three feet from the basket coral. Yeah, that’s right, basket coral. Are we that lazy? We’re you absent the day Mom taught Shopping Basket Return? We’ll, there must be some good reason, but I can’t think of one.
For those of you who were absent that day, here’s how it works. After you’ve payed for your groceries, you walk your basket to your car. You empty the contents, and then you walk your empty basket and place it in the basket coral. It’s the big metal structure with plastic red sides, empty baskets inside, and the sign that reads Place Baskets Here. It’s really simple. Also, the Basket Coral is not located in my front yard. Some of you think that it is.
Please, put them back. Don’t be one of those people. I don’t want to have to do this again next year. : )
Oh, you know what? Festivus isn’t technically over yet. No one has pinned me and we all know that Festivus isn’t over until you pin me. See you in the parking lot.
