I like blogging. It's fun but I have been struggling with exactly what I should blog about. Then it hit me. I am going to catalog the stupidity that I see on a daily basis and report it to all the good folks on the Patch.
Last week, I ran into the supermarket to get hot dog rolls and a gallon of milk, and what do I see but a woman and her husband about 45 years old shopping with their little Bichon Frise in the upper child seat of the shopping cart. Um yeah, that is pretty disgusting. I fail to see the necessity of bringing an animal into a food establishment when I am sure it would be perfectly content at home. And I guess I wasn't the only one who found fault with this as I observed the manager on duty speaking with the couple. The worst part of all is the indignant attitude displayed by the woman. Although, I didn't hear the whole exchange I absolutely saw wild gesticulations from the woman and heard her utter the phrase "well you just lost a customer" Really? Good! Too bad that she didn't start her boycott before she checked out (with the dog still in the cart mind you).
In what world would it be ok to bring an animal into a business where food for human consumption is prepared and sold? Just another example of the self entitlement that is running rampant these days.
Remember, before you put your cantaloupes in the cart a dog's butt may have been resting comfortably there just minutes before.
