Austin and I went to the store yesterday with the kiddos. As we were walking through, we got stuck behind a lady who obvisouly has never heard the phrase "Slower traffic keep right". She was OBVIOUSLY from Alabama. Bet she doesn't turn right on red either. Anyhoo...her buggy was clearly in our way in the middle of the canned vegetable aisle. Now, why we were going down that aisle is beyond me since we have spent the last 3 weeks putting up corn (on the cob and creamed!), tomatoes, green beans, okra, squash, and soon to come...blueberries. But, Austin's grocery shopping routine requires each and every aisle to be perused. But, I digress (which I do alot, so get used to it!). As we squeezed both of our buggies past her, Austin commented on how there should be horns on grocery carts. Let me explain to you why that would be an incredibly awful idea for someone like me:
1. I lived in Tallahassee for four years. That was the birthplace of my uninhibited road rage.
2. I lived in Charlotte, North Carolina. For those of you who may not know...that is the central
NASCAR headquarters of the world. Everyone who lives there fully believes that they are, in
fact, a NASCAR driver and are therefore under NO obligation to use a blinker or brake pedal.
3. I currently live in DeFuniak Springs....land of tourist drivers who have no clue where 331
North turns off of HWY 90 and dump truck drivers who don't care that you are coming down
the road..they'll turn in front of you anyhow.
4. I have a temper fuse much like that of a cornered raccoon when I am driving.
Grocery cart horns would have catastrophic repurcussions of global proportions for someone like me. Can you be banned from a grocery store for life? I mean...could they actually prohibit me from purchasing food goods? I might need to check in on that.
