Go to fullsize image Go to fullsize image Go to fullsize image

So Easter is coming and I don’t know about anyone else but I think it’s the best holiday out there.  Nothing is more fun than finding random hidden eggs and getting all dressed up to get dirty and then sitting by a giant rabbit and smiling!

Go to fullsize imageI always get excited because Peeps come out and now they have come  out in all sorts of color like green, pink, and blue apart from the standard yellow and now they have rabbits.  I think hey need to stick with standard chocolate rabbits, but what do I care I just can’t get enough peeps.  I know I went shopping yesterday and felt truly bad for m friend because she wanted pink bunnies and really they didn’t have any 😦  Sad face I know I even went up and down all the 500 checkout aisles at Walmart to see if they had them nope – not even close all chickens no rabbits!  They had every other color for the rabbits but no pink ones.

Well at least she got her Robin’s Egg candies.  Although she pouted it still wasn’t the same…now how awfully sad is that?!

898: Items that are Misplaced in the Clearance Bin

 

Go to fullsize image

60% off, BOGO sale, Sale of the century!  No matter if it’s the liquidation sale and if the building is on fire sale, stores are always out to find the quickest buck and get you out to buy their products.  But nothing beats the feeling of finding a good sale.  Especially on a hard-to-find unique item.  So you check it out, look at it try it on if you have to, or you might just hide it way way way below the sale bin in hopes no one can find it.  That way you can go home get the extra stash money you have to get the item.  

Now that you got this one-of-a-kind sale item you happily walk it over to the counter.  and the cashier rings up the products and as you get to your sale item you watch the register as it magically displays the sale item.  To your astonishment the item was not for sale.  You claim that you found the item in the clearance section, a price check is done and it’s found that it was placed there by accident…

Yeah now how awfully misleading is that?!

915: New & Improved & Made with Real Fruit Products

As I was off to buy a quick bag of sugar for my bland coffee in the morning, I walked past a few aisles and figured why not check out the cereals, because oatmeal can be only oh so delicious after a few days of the goulashlike mixture.

Wild! Grape Pop-TartsI paroozed the gallery of cereals and see some cereals that claim to be “New & Improved!”  now 20% more!  Then as I go towards the end of the aisles my favorite quicksnack Poptarts with the ever so delicious return of grape!!!!!  Oh how I missed grape!!!! They had it before but like most premiered products drifted away and now has returned better than ever now “Made with Real Fruit!

Now with all these advertising gimmicks I ask to you “New & Improved” if it’s the same cereal how is it new?  and If you add only a new design marshmallow to “Charm” us it really improved?  Let alone the snacks that are “Made with Real Fruit” what were in you in the first place?!  Dare I ask?!

Now how awfully misleading is that?!

919: Making a purchase and the alarm goes off at the door

Those little sensors hidden within the electronic games, DVD’s, and CD’s that we buy – well let’s just say any major electronic device that is of immense value cannot be easily taken out of the store.  We think we hold in the clearing after we believe the demagnitizer desensitizes the magnet in the product.  We take our purchase and make way leisurely towards the door and then the alarm goes off.

Then here comes everyone in the store looking at you and the other people walking out of the store looking back as you pause to look at your bag and then have to hand the staff at the doorway your receipt of purchase.  No it’s okay take an extra 5 more minutes to stroll over to an available register and try it again.  As you thank the employee you walk back over and it sets the alarm sensor back off.

The employees laughs and says go on through.  Well gee if it were that simple – hmmm…. Thank you for stalling all that time out of my life!  Now how awful is that?!

921: Pull N’Peel Tabs

Those little paper/plastic tabs that are meant to separate extra air and particles from “polluting” the product.  As more of nuisance of trying to use a product then breaking the seal to get to the tab it’s the usage of the tab to get it off the top of the bottle.  It’s as bad as using a metal one on a can then it breaks off and then what?!

Guess I’ll have to poke the tab off with a knife or pen.  Now how awfully time consuming is that?!

946. Taking an extra surprise step in the snow

You can’t believe it!  It actually is snowing!  So you layer on 3 shirts, 2 pants, 2 thick socks, gloves, a scarf, glasses, a hoodie, boots, and a thick winter jacket!  Good to go!  So you get outside to enjoy the snow as in some areas like ours it’s just a rarity!  So you figure why not walk to 7-11 it’s open cause you know they are open all the time kinda like Walmart, it just never seems to close!

So as you take steps towards the sidewalk things to be doing well!  I got this down you think.  So you just hobble along the snow as best as you can – hey what can I say it’s better than shoveling it!  Anyhow, as you make your journey 2 short blocks to get some coffee you get to the cross walk.  You cross the street carefully not to make sure you slide off on some black ice so you then search for the curb and sidewalk.  Since the roads are rather covered in thick snow you make due with where you think the sidewalk might be located.  You continue to look a bit as the snow just flurries by your face not making any of this better.

Searching …

Searching….

THERE! Found a spot, you jump on it a little bit, good continue the walk and then you take a step good …feels about safe and then you look over and notice the street lamp post is a bit close to your left isn’t the sidewalk to the left of it and as you turn your foot DROPS deep down a pocket of snow and sinks causing you to lose your footing and balance and topple in the snow.  Great!!!!  How nice!

Oh nice here comes a car, now how awful is that?!

958. Realizing that you threw away a receipt /item you need

Go to fullsize image

So you’re making your way home and you tote your bags to your place and then after settling in put away the items and then place the grocery/store bags in the trash.  Come to find out that a few days later has gone by and then you realize that you need some of that chapstick you bought.

Hmm, didn’t you just get it from the store the other day??? As you check where you store your items you realize that you trashed the item when you put the bag away in the garbage and had already took it down to the trash dumpster.  Well there goes those lovely chapped lips.  Thankfully I didn’t need to return those jeans I bought, now how awful is that?!
