Automobiles from another era:
Sherry is a little under the weather, as they say out west. So I
went shopping by myself today, REALLY!
I got it all, the whole list, even ‘Ginger Root’ and toilet paper.
On farms or the early west you were fortunate if there were corn cobs in
the outhouse. THEN some wonderful man or woman invented what they called ‘Privacy
Paper’. Now maybe they had this in the
castles of Europe before our West, but for danged sure it took a long time
I said that to say:
Humans today are not happy to have just one type of anything. Years ago we bought ‘Toilet
paper’. Now it has become just like ladies nylons, there are 1,602 different names,
types, colors and what all...... I finally did buy SOME!
Then there was a lady in front of me who decided she really did not
want the new broom she had in her buggy, so she took it out and left it in
the soup aisle.
As I moved along I
noticed a couple empty drink cans, on the shelves with the laundry stuff. I guess
you don’t have to pay if you drink it in the store.
Then there was the lady with 3 kids. She stopped in the veggie aisle to empty the candy and stuff the kids had put in the basket. She left it there without a second thought it seemed..
WE all have seen (Or experienced) interesting stuff pertaining to public restrooms. Things can happen to anyone, like leaving the restroom with a small piece of toilet paper stuck to your shoe. It even happens to Presidents. Just the other day when I came out of the toilet in a restaurant and Sherry pointed out, ‘Your shirt is half tucked in!’
Well today I saw
something that topped that. You know the disposable seat covers for commode
seats. Leaving the store an older lady was in front of me. She had one of those
covers hanging out of the back of her stretch pants. TRUE! ........ Should I tell her? I
am debating….. She will soon be to her car forget about it....... Then she passed
someone who knew her, they told her. She pulled it out and they had a big
laugh. But Imma thinking the lady was laughing to cover her embarrassment. WE
OLD people must be careful…. We can still be embarrassed ..... LOL I am living proof!
