It’s Friday, and apparently it’s also black. I wouldn’t know because I would never head out to shop on such a crazy day.
But my older sister did. And she went out for food, not presents. As her husband ventured off to bring the car to the door (inclement weather), she stayed at the front of the store waiting dutifully. When the wind picked up, she backed slightly into the store and kept looking out the window for signs of the car. I’m not sure how long this took…but with everyone and their au pair out shopping, parking lots were no doubt crowded.
She sees the car pull up out front and grabs her cart. Or, rather, would have grabbed her cart if someone had not taken it from where she was standing. It was gone. Some thieving bastard saw her distracted and swooped in for the kill. Thankfully it was only $160 in groceries, and not some tragic loss of someone’s complete xmas shop.
