For Sale

Can I interest you in some sun baked sodas? How bout a rack of pollen saturated clothing? Yes pollen saturated, not polyunsaturated. There is even an item or two of tobacco smoke filtered munches! employees come outside often to take a smoke break. ( just as an aside, did you know a smoke break is not the same as a work break and that non-smokers can not take a cigarette out to fire up and let it burn as an option to their smoke break? )

You see, I live across the road from a Dollar General Store. I find it interesting to see bottled soda sitting out front all day in the blistering sun beaming down on them. They place racks of clothes and other assorted merchandise outside. The pollen covers all the merchandise. Those evening pop up thunderstorms make for an entertaining show when they rush around to get all the stuff back inside.

To their credit they do leave the front doors standing wide open. That way they can move quickly, however, they’ve got to have one whale of a power bill running the air conditioner!

I wonder how much longer before the redneck bug catcher hangs from the entrance. The kind with the sticky stuff handing from the light chain.

Honestly, you want to buy stuff treated like this? The store across from our house used to be clean. Now it is going the way of the ole Family Dollar Stores. Dirty, cluttered, nasty and employees would care little bout their appearance much less the stores.

Come to think of it, I guess this is just their versus of s sidewalk sale.

Until next time,
