The girls and I were at WalMart today picking up a quick couple of things. We were on a boxed food aisle when a man (with his daughter) took his carton of eggs and just placed it on one of the shelves.
Um. Eggs are supposed to be cold. Eggs don’t belong with the macaroni. Because this man was too lazy to walk the fifty feet back to the egg section he was just going to leave the carton with the pasta.
Put it back. If you don’t need something that you’ve picked up put it back where it belongs. Not only was this man setting a bad example to his child by being plain lazy he was being disrespectful to WalMart. No, a carton of eggs don’t cost WalMart a lot, but it’s the principle of the matter. That man was saying his thirty seconds were more important than the money it costs to replace a carton of eggs that went bad on the pasta aisle.
Also, when you’re done with your cart in the parking lot put the thing in one of the cart returns. Honestly, does it really take that long to return it? Once again this is an example of laziness and disrespect for the store and for other people’s property (their cars).
This was a good little character lesson that I made sure Reagan knew about and understood as we walked the fifty feet back to the egg section.
Rant over. Enjoy your weekend.
