Trying to watch Kill Bill Volume II and they’ve edited it. Bill says to Kiddo, “You’re not a bad person, you’re a terrific person; my favorite person. But every once in a while, you can be a real SOREHEAD.”
Non-hurricane related, is bagging your own groceries really a thing at Trader Joe’s? The ones here have the bags behind the counter. How am I supposed to bag my own if I can’t reach the bags? I DON’T WANT TO BE DOING THIS WRONG?
Ok, growing up in NY, I did not have a TJs, (there are a few now,) but I DID have grocery stores, and you bagged your own groceries every time. There were times when they had the youngsters bagging, but if it was busy, you bagged your own shit. Always.
In CA? NO ONE bags their own shit here, in any grocery store, in any situation. There are baggers and some get snippy if you try to bag your stuff, because *YOU ARE NOT DOING IT RIGHT.*
This makes for some embarrassing moments when I visit NY, completely forgetting I need to handle my own shit. Also embarrassing? How many times I circle the Stop and Shop looking for wine. I spent 25 years of my life there! HOW QUICKLY I FORGET.
I bag my own stuff about 1/2 the time, whether at TJs or at the supermarket. It all depends upon how busy they are, and whether my son is with me or not.
I feel I should also say that I don’t own a car, so I need to have my stuff bagged a specific way to even the weight out as much as possible between the bags, and also I generally put the heaviest items in one bag so I can put that in my backpack. Most courtesy clerks (the official name of baggers) don’t even things out, so I always end up having to re-bag it anyway.
The fact that the majority of Black America says the book/movie The Help is racist garbage, while the majority of White America says it's an inspiring, uplifting, story tells us more about the state of race in this country than the election of Barack Obama.
“I’m the Wayne Gretsky of sexual stuff
I’m the Hulk Hogan of slamming muff
I’m the Indiana Jones of exploring crotch
I’m the Shakespeare of enormous cock
I’m the Helen Keller of having sex… no wait that’s a bad example”—
