costco hates me

i think this can safely be filed in the category: things that only happen to ster...

i was leaving costco yesterday and pushing my overly stuffed cart into the street when i heard a loud crash. i tried to push the cart, but it was stuck. i was still trying to make it move, but it wouldn't budge! i ran to the front only to see that the cokes and diet cokes had fallen. the cart was on top of the diet coke case thing, and the regular cokes had broken free. they were rolling all over the street! i was chasing cokes everywhere. cars were stopping. don't hit the cokes!! seriously, please picture me chasing cokes left and right as they're rolling into the street while people are trying to drive and not hit them. and everytime i tried to put them back into the box, they'd fall back out. i wanted to just sit down in the middle of the street and laugh, but i think someone would have ran me over. save the cokes, hit the ster.

okay, thank you for that hilarious picture in my head of you running around crazy trying to save the cokes! Did you save them all? Because if not, that would be a true tragedy!

That is the kind of shit that always happens to me. So, while I am not happy to see it happen to you, I am glad to know I'm not the only one.
Fun times.

HILARIOUS! Seriously! I would have loved to witness that. The only thing that would have made that funnier is if you would have fallen after stepping on one of the cans.

sweatpantsmom said...

Ha! I'm laughing at this, but at the same time the cheapskate in me is wondering DID YOU SAVE ALL THE COKES?

jen said...

Kevin Charnas said...

It's not just you. Just a couple days ago I was stepping over produce because my son was bowling with oranges at the grocery store. As I gathered up the first three, I had to leap over two more that were coming at me on the way back.
But I wasn't in danger of getting run over by any cars. *phew*

Firemantaco said...

LMAO - Spidey is totally picturing this right now!

Jodi said...

Um yeah, not only can I picture it happening to me, I am quite certain that it has happened! Those speed bumps in Costco's parking lot are dangerous to try and navigate an overflowing cart with! :)

Virginia Belle said...

LOL that is too funny. i can totally picture it.

if it had been me, i would have been hunched over on the sidewalk, laughing my ass off as the cars hit the cokes and they went splattering everywhere. with each new squirt and burst, i would be laughing even harder. there is no way i could pick them up. i'd be laughing my ass off.
