Two Days To Go And There Is Quite The Show!

So last year this time I decided to write this chime, after watching nuts in a store. I just wanted to watch at my shore. I figured it would be good blog fodder for me and I had some time to kill before going to the other sea.

Two women fought over a turkey.
It looked as small as jerky.
I guess they needed more,
Or waited late at their shore.

There were more cars there,
Then a car lot has to spare.
If you wanted to park,
You'd have to find a place with no mark.

Carts were filled to the brim.
Are these people dim?
I can see forgetting a thing or two,
But enough to feed a whole zoo?

Shelves were good and bare.
I did spot some hair.
That made me think, yummy.
Want some hair with your gummy?

One guy elbowed a little old lady,
Yeah he was quite shady,
To grab a can of some crap.
He took off as she began to flap.

Another lady took the last cart.
A whiner had to go make a dart.
He found one in the corral.
He was quite the foul mouthed pal.

One took his whole arm,
And caused a shelf harm.
Yep, the guy took his arm and plopped all in his cart.
All that canned crap can't be good for the heart.

People were as grumpy as can be, 
Not very Christmas like at their sea.
Carts were rammed here and there,
You'd swear we were at an American lair.

Some whined they still had to wrap.
Another whined he needed a map.
Yep, he was lost in the store.
Or maybe he just needed to shop more.

And that was my walk.
I didn't even talk.
I just strolled on in and out.
My, what angry shoppers can shout.

Why wait until the last day? Are they that nuts at their bay? Think they are going to get some big deal? Like those things are ever really real. I guess the cheer doesn't count in the store. Nuts going in and out each door. Glad I needed nothing at all. But fun to watch at my hall. Not that I want to do it again. Rather go play with a hen. You shoppers sure aren't a merry mass. You scare my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  5. And so the spirit of Christmas lives on evermore on grocery market shelves. As long as you can push that greedy SOB out of the way so you can get the last can,
    that is.

  6. Whatever happened to R?
    Is he really stuck in a jar?
    Or did he steal a car
    And drive off to a-far
    Oh perish the thought
    A car he should have bought
    It isn't nice to steal
    Another person's wheel
    It's just plain impolite
    Like poking a hole in another's kite
    Maybe R was late-night shopping
    In the store where Cat was stopping
    I'll betcha he's home in a frenzy, wrapping
    Gifts for the Rhymers with fingers tapping

    1. haha - Did R steal a car

    2. lol R may be locked up
      In the pound like a pup
      Maybe he met S and they made T
      Then a U came to be
      But if he were to steal a car
      He may piss off the drunk at a bar

    3. r behind bars
      for stealing cars
      should've been a spaceship
      then he could've gone to mars
      and wrote his memoirs
      turn it into a movie scrip

  11. One Christmas Eve I went to the store to pick up the turkey and side dishes for our dinner.The food was cooked and ready to go, but the carts were all taken.
    A kind man who worked at the store took pity on this little old grannie. He found me a cart, whisked the turkey and trimmings to my car, and I swore I'd never go to the store on Christmas Eve again. I'm going today instead.

  18. My 13yo son had a bunch of friends over and part way through the day I offered to go pick one up as it was raining heavily. The place I picked her up was at a big shopping mall as the mall also serves as a public transit terminus. Wow, the rudeness you describe on your walk was the same thing in the parking lot - all sorts of honking and rude driving behaviour with many potential accidents just barely averted.

    I think next year I'm going to test on-line shopping for all of my Christmas shopping, but I'll start much earlier.
