So about 20 minutes ago I went out and filled up Allison’s car. Herein Manchester there is competition at the supermarkets and Stop and Shop gives out $0.45 off per gallon coupons after you spend $100.00 in the store, and you also get a $10.00 gift card. Back home, we get squat! Dan had an extra coupon because he never uses them fast enough. We could use 3 a week. So I drove over and got gas at Stop and Shop. With my Stop & Shop card I got $0.05 off per gallon, and then with the $0.45 off per gallon that made the savings $0.50 a gallon. It made my $2.43 & 9/10 a gallon only $1.97 & 9/10 a gallon. I hate that dang extra 9/10 is it a scam. But I was happy to pay under two dollars a gallon.
I decided to go into the supermarket and buy some scallops wrapped in bacon because we are having appetizers at the house prior to the meal at Piccola. Now here is where I spread my Christmas Cheer.
As I was walking into the supermarket some random guy says to me. “Look at you with no jacket.” and I smiled and said, “Nope, no jacket.” and I kept walking. Then I hear him say, “Pretty tough guy.”
Okay, one of my pet peeves, since I have a ton of them is random people talking to me. Keep your opinions to yourself when you meet me in public. I don’t need to know that the line is long and you have been waiting. Shut it and deal. I don’t need to know your sob story. I don’t want to know how frustrated you are with the flight delay. Deal with it in quiet. So when this guy randomly remarked to me about my lack of jacket I really wanted to say, “Look at you with the minding of your own business. Thanks but, I have a wife, mother and mother-in-law so you must know that your opinion is what really matters.” But since I am in a seasonable mood I just smiled and continued on. Annoyed enough to blog about it now. And yes I know I am sharing my frustrations and annoyances with you, but you chose to come here. You know what I am like. I’m a curmudgeon.
