Every month I‘m going to do a little round up of the not so bookish things in my life.
I spent a lot of time in the beginning of July car shopping as my previous car met an untimely and unfortunate end. Car shopping is the worst kind of shopping. I know that car salesmen are trying to make a profit and everything but when I tell you that I’m not interested in the loaded special edition model than you probably shouldn’t tell me to “just drive it and see”. Why would I want to test drive a car that I know I can’t afford? Idiot!
Needless to say, I bought my car at a different dealership where – gasp – the salesman actually listened to what I had to say.
I just cannot get over this. It is just plain wrong.
I went to Wal-Mart to pick up a few things for work. I got in line behind this woman who had a fair amount of stuff. She puts a $20 bill on the counter, which clearly will not cover her amount of stuff, so I prepared myself for some kind of argument.
But there was no argument, instead she took off her shoe and took a stack of bills OUT OF HER SHOE! That she was wearing WITHOUT SOCKS! So Gross!
Wearing shoes without socks is gross. Keeping money in your shoe is gross. Combining them is super extra gross. And she put her barefoot down on the floor to take her money out of her shoe, which I would never do. Barefoot + Public Places = Gross.
Money is dirty people. Remember that.
I’m not going to discuss my big issue with the Family Dollar. Instead I’m going to rant about dollar stores. Now, I absolutely love the Dollar Tree. You can find awesome stuff there and everything is $1 which is sweet. But then you have other stores Like Family Dollar and Dollar General and you walk into those stores and… everything is NOT a $1. Both of these stores are basically discount stores or a small version of Wal-Mart.
Personally, I think if you are going to have DOLLAR in your name, everything in the store should be a $1. Just Sayin’.
