A Vast Conspiracy


Some of you (*Kat*) are shaking your head about what a right wing nut job I am.

"Oh, no," you groan as you read my title.

But I'm telling you it's a conspiracy.



I went to the grocery store today and did my shopping. As I make my way through our store, frozen foods are last. I was almost out of the store when I became a victim of this VAST CONSPIRACY.


I swear that the stores hire a "Juice Watcher" so that when someone finally manages to get a can of juice concentrate out of the tightly packed, horizontal row, the Watcher rushes over and fills that spot. Now the juices are once again fully stocked in tight packed, horizontal rows with nowhere to wedge your fingers for a grip on the frozen juice!


Convince me that it is not a conspiracy. I dare you.

That is only the BEGINNINGS of the vast conspiracies that go on at the grocery store...

Trish said...

Sounds like a conspiracy to me!!!

Desi said...

>_< woah. I mean, seriously. Woah. I would be frightened to ever buy juice again.

Debbie said...

That's INSANE! ;)

No it isn't, it is a CONSPIRACY. Just watch there is more to come. First the juice and then...........

What about the grocery store conspiracy to put my favorite items on sale and then not have them in the store? HMMM

Funny, the conspiracy theory I am a part of while shopping is that often what I need is out of stock for the 3rd day in a row. It's happened to me soooooo much lately I can't take it. How's a girl to plan a meal when nothing is where it should be?

What about the rule that if you want to avoid fattening food you should only shop the perimeter of the store. And *that's* where the taste taster people are! "Would you like to try a deep fried snack? Or how about a piece of cake that we're promoting." No!!!!! The conspiracies are there, i believe you! :)

I'm visiting from BAtW.

It's definitely a conspiracy. I'll tell you how I know -- last year I edited a guy's PhD thesis on supermarkets' problems with OOS. That's out-of-stock to you and me (see, conspiracies always have mysterious acronyms attached - MAsA). He advised more juice watchers... And don't all conspiracies start with a PhD thesis?

Insanity is in the eye of the beholder....
I myself think you are perfectly normal... it's everyone else around us that is crazy :)
Love the guest blog at BATW.... I have a few less kids (3) but I have to agree with the no diapers, somewhat calming effect happening lately.

Braja said...

It's a conspiracy. But you're still insane :)
Good post; come and see me whenever you're brave enough...I got enough conspiracies to fill your calendar from here til breakfast on the 12th of Never....

Lula! said...

Girl, you know that is a conspiracy. I believe every single word.

p.s. And you know I'm a proud member of that vast, right-wing conspiracy, too. PROUD OF IT! Thank you. And Amen.

And that's why I make a list and send hubby shopping - every Saturday at 7:30 a.m. - his self appointed time! Let him deal with those conspiracies. It's a small price to pay that he buys stuff that's not on my list just because IT WAS ON SALE! I'll find a way to use it. I simply loathe shopping!I know, I'm really blessed that he loves to go grocery shopping!I wouldn't dream of taking his job away.

hahaha! seriously it is all a conspiracy theory...and I love that movie by the way! even if i am a little crazy when i walk around the next day!

mer@lifeat7000feet said...

Uh huh...I have some conspiracy theories of my own...and I think you're definitely onto something in regard to that juice. Maybe they want us to give up and spend more on the bottled kind.

Kat said...

Oooooo...I got a shout out! And I LOVE conspiracy theories. Love 'em. I think that just about everything is a conspiracy. Especially at Limited Too. Because when I shop I get a huge stack of coupons. So, I come back to shop and use my coupons and they give me another stack of them. And I am in an endless cycle. And they have a hand on my wallet...

And I am sure that somehow Target lulls me into this coma everytime I walk in there. Because I have no idea how I manage to spend so much...
