Ok, so maybe this is not blog worthy, or even mentionable to some people, but a Publix opened right off our exit and I am so excited. Why? First of all I love Publix. I dont care if they are more expensive. They have far better produce and meat than Walmart and I HATE running into walmart for one item. And second of all, it is on our direct route home so those one little items we need to grab for dinner or what not are a lot more convenient.
So on opening day I really wanted to go and check out the deals. Matt thought this was really weird of me, and I guess that just proves how boring and domesticated I am, but I went for a few minutes after work on opening day. They had balloons outside. It was very enticing.
Honestly I did not have nearly the time I wanted to spend that day, but I did go back yesterday and had a great laugh.
As I said, I love Publix. I am also all about people who are able to work by all means working if they would like. Well I have not been feeling 100% lately and had a large amount of groceries. I was really wanting to take advantage of the little car service they provide so they could unload the cart. Normally I do not worry about it but they want to help, right?
So I get my cart fully loaded and this little 90 year old man with about 2 teeth (seriously) asks very politely if he could help me with my groceries. I took a look at him and realized he probably could not lift a gallon of milk so I told him thank you and I was fine. So I walked my cart to the car... and he slowly followed me. I thought he was collecting carts or something. Nope, he wanted to help little ole me. I was appreciative of course and he was a sweet old man but I think there may be a better job for him. He stood by my cart while I loaded it all into the van and every now and then would hand me a bag and say "here's your bread". (nothing heavy of course). I found myself smiling the entire time because it was just so cute and yet so pointless. Bless him.
For some reason I just thought it was funny. But did I mention I love Publix? :)
