Customers in Training

Monday, September 4th, 2006

More like a-holes in the way. The Pittsford Wegmans has these tiny carts for little kids to "shop" along with their parents. They have this little flag that says "Customer in Training." The person that thought of this should be shot, but only after the parents who let their children use these carts. This particular Wegmans is always a zoo and it just makes it that much worse when there are 5 year olds completely oblivious to the world pushing little carts around getting in your way.

Today we did our shopping for the week. Even before we get into the store we have to wait for some little kid to push his little cart out of the lane. It's bad enough this kid's parents let him use the cart in the store, but what could they have been thinking letting him push it around the parking lot? We had a few other encounters with the mini-carts in the store, but nothing out of the ordinary.

I wish we had a Wegmans by us instead of a "stop and Rob". We walked into a wegmans when we were in NY and wow, I couldn't believe it!

It's great, but the store closest to our house is the one where all the yuppies go. You can imagine the snotty looks that get thrown around when a whole bunch of snobs jockey for position in the shortest lines.

Yuppies? In Rochester? Dude, you have no idea. Come down to DC for a weekend.

I hate the minicarts. I've had kids run into the back of my heels (nothing is worse than a shopping cart injury) and the parents are always totally oblivious to how obnoxious their kid is being with the cart. I also hate the HUGE shopping cart/car things they have to occupy kids. They have an even bigger one, the SUV model that has a bench where the parent pushes, then the shopping cart, THEN the part shaped like a car for kids to sit in. It is horrible because the kids usually aren't even in the shopping cart so it's just wasting space. Children shouldn't be allowed out of the house until the age of 12.

And let me guess...the store aisles are not big enough for those SUV carts. I've gotten to the point where if a kid did something to hurt me, I'll yell at him loud enough for the mother to take notice. Some parents are oblivious. I have no patience for bratty kids. The Stop & Rob has those car carts for kids and it is too big for their small aisles. And the best of all, they hire handicap people to do the bagging and they have no clue how to pack a bag. I always try to avoid a register with a packer so that I can pack the bags my way. Besides I want to get out of there TODAY and not the next day because these packers are so SLLLOOWW.

The aisles usually are pretty big, at least big enough for a couple of those SUV carts to pass each other. The problem is that people will like stop in the middle of the aisle and walk away to get something leaving one of those monster carts full of brats blocking traffic in both directions. Makes me want to kill.
