I went out to grab Thanksgiving groceries today and of course there were so many people out. Everyone was rushing about and seemed very stressed. However, I was cool as a cucumber. Anyone else cool yo?

I am contributing a vegan side dish to my daughter's Thanksgiving meal. I needed a few groceries and my preferred grocery store is close to my gym. So after my gym visit I made a quick stop. I can't say I was cool, though it was pretty cold outside. But I was in and out and on my way pretty quickly. I kept my coat zipped up so hopefully my sweat was not pungent.


I am the sole chef for the holiday meal and I couldn't be happier. Nobody scrapping for space on my burners or halting my flow. It will be done and it will be done right. Then, I rest on my laurels and let others wash those dishes!


Cooler than a polar bear's toenails, fam.


i got a ride to the store this afternoon and it was a bit crowded but everyone was nice, polite, laughingm moving their carts over so others could get by, really friendly -- except this ONE woman who was ahead of me in line. i don't know whether i drove my cart into her butt or whether she backed up into my cart but i assumed the former and apologized, and she just gave me the nastiest look, as if she thought i did it on purpose.

I had to go to Walmart to pick up prescriptions. It actually wasn't all that bad.

I'm always cool in the face of crazy shoppers. I'm not one for the tension. I'm not willing to murder someone for a $2 sale on chop meat or milk.

My first real job was at a grocery store, busiest in the chain. Arrived for a dreaded pre-holiday shift to find crime scene tape around the meat dept - and blood! Two women had gone at each other over a ham.. Fortunately, this was ‘pre-concealed carry.’ Christ-mass music for months … those braindead bell-ringers.. We hated ‘the holy days’ smile005.gif

@Varn It's crazy.


I was cool as cold granite yo!

I was just out cuz it was a magnificent day! Drove into a grocery store whose lot I couldn’t see from the street - Mayhem! Like a cool cucumber ..I navigated to the nearest exit.. and split smile009.gif … eventually driving the ice ravaged blue ridge parkway home, just me and what’s left of it’s trees..
