What are my thoughts on “The Greatest Generation”? (Hint: It involves their tendency to use profanity in public). How is the grocery store a lot like a strip club? Will I be arrested for dishing parenting advice like “make your kids run hill repeats before taking them out in public.”?

hahaha….you gave her a dollar?
my natural instinct is to pay my way out of uncomfortable situations.
You are such a dad.
I love the elderly. To me, if you live as long as they have, you can say whatever you want. My great grandpa was the funniest man I knew and my grandpa was the greatest man I ever loved.
Thank you for sharing your post. Loved it!! 🙂 I have a 2 1/2 yr old and I wish my store would move the Gatorade out of the cookie aisle to avoid a scene of sobs from my daughter lol!
Love when they pull the deep in your eye truth about the world.. I have been told many things in the grocery store line!
this is a little off topic, but the first few lines made me think of a time in Bali. i was in a convenience store and a dad was in there with his toddler who kept begging for a ‘lollie”. Dad was sweet at first…’no sweetie, you’ve had a lollie already’ this went on for a few minutes – child whining, dad sweetly counterwhining. Finally the dad said (in his thick, gruff Aussie accent) “For F@#$ sake, would you shut up!”
Only an Aussie could be bold enough to pull THAT one. In America you would for sure have CPS called on you for such abuse. And that, I suppose, is why we have come to filter ourselves – FEAR. old people are great – They have no fear and therefor no filters.
Once again, hilarious post.
Old or not, she sounds like a garden-variety nut. I’m sure she was a crazy young person, as well. Hopefully she puts your dollar toward the anti-psychotics she clearly needs. Funny, funny story!
This is hilarious. And so true! My kids are 2 years and 11 months and grocery shopping can be like manoeuvring through a mine field, you are not sure when things could blow up, but its more likely than not at some point you are going to wish you hadn’t gone.
And I totally agree about getting a cow, this should be a required gift at your baby shower. Congratulations on your little one – here’s a cow. You don’t know it yet, but you are about to spend more money on dairy products than diapers.
Thanks for sharing your humour. Kids are napping and I am in the kitchen laughing to myself like a crazy person. Love it.
