i look forward to elderlyhood. i'm not sure if they're aware of this, but old peole can get away with anything. yesterday, i was at my good old cashier post, and this old woman pushed this old man up to the til in a wheelchair. he looked at me blankly for a moment...and then started pulling stuff out of his shirt. scissors, pens, tape, duotangs...yeah. instead of grabbing a basket, they just wandered down the aisles stuffing their shirts full of whatever they wanted. and then when they got to the til they emptied it all out and paid for it.
now, if i were to go into a store such as staples, and start stuffing their merchandise into my shirt, i'd probably get arrested. which is why i guess i have to wait until i'm 70.
[side note: they were really cute. she was blind, so even though it looked like she was pushing him and steering, he was leading her with the wheelchair.]
today i also saw the world's smartest dad. from what i saw of the situation, it looked like the kid was hyperactive...and his dad was desparately trying to get some grocery shopping done. so what did he do? scold? spank? no, he gave him a basketball and told him to pop it. everytime i walked past the cereal aisle, there was little jimmy trying his best to pop that dang basketball. it occupied him for a long time. deffffinately gonna use that one when i grow up and give birth.
