encounters with my baby brother: 14

A little while ago the Baby Brother had a bad back so when he rang early one morning I offered to go and do a grocery shop for him.

The BB: Nah.  I went yesterday.

Me:  Well, I guess it was good that you got out of the house, but I can get you more stuff if you want.

The BB: Nah. I have enough food for a few days.

Me:  Why don’t you just do a big shop?  You know, so you would be okay for more than a few days.

The BB: Then I would have to take a trolley instead of one of the handbasket things.

Me:  So?

The BB:  I don’t trust myself with a trolley cos it is too tempting to mow those other fuckers in the store down.

Me:  This is true.

We are so much alike.

Poor him.

    It's true. It's hard some days. Nothing ticks me off like people who refuse to take their hand off the cart for any reason whatsoever. Therefore blocking off space for 4 people in front of whatever fruit/veg/meat section they are in. No one is going to “steal” your food. You haven't paid for it yet, there's a whole store if they do. Sigh. I'm not a fan of shopping. Wanna come and do mine?

    I can admit to wanting to mow down other shoppers that annoy me. Thank heavens I'm such a good girl and never actually do anything bad like that.

  3. Eyre says:

    I sometimes imagine the aisles are like bowling alleys. I'd just love to give the cart a big shove and knock down those people who insist on standing in the middle of the aisle gossiping. Seriously, can't they understand that other people might want to be able to reach the darn peanut butter?!?!

  4. KB/KT Grant says:

    OMG I think the same thing like your BB! But what about the motorized carriages? I so want to ride one of those and chase people down the aisles.

  5. Kris says:

    Chris: Yup.

    Tam: Nope.

    Tracy: HA! Good girl, my arse!

    Eyre: *snort* Been there, wanted to do that.

    KBC: The BB and I plan to have races in those things when we get to be old farts. We also plan on steal the Granddad's to take it out for a spin when he gets his.

    You are such a lovely sister!

    I have a confession. When I'm returning the trolley to the trolley park I kind of ride on it 🙂 It's so 10-year-old but I can't resist 🙂

  7. Ha! My husband always drives the cart AND nails me in the back of the heels.

    That is one of the rare times that we had a fight in public.

  8. Tracy says:

    Tracy: HA! Good girl, my arse!

    Could you possibly be insinuating that I'm not? I'm shocked.

  9. Ingrid says:

    It's better to shop when there are less people around.

  10. Kris says:

    Orannia: *whispers* I do that too.

    Miranda: We all know how bad boys are at driving. This is further proof.

    Tracy: Sure you are…

    Ingrid. I try. Believe me.
