How To Cut In Line

I was at Walmart buying a cart load full of junk. Literally the back of the cart was overflowing with stuff. I hadn't bought that many things, but what I did buy was large and took up lots of room... two big boxes of diapers, big mega box of wipes, papertowels, toilet paper, tissues.

Basically it was stuff that was going to only make a pit stop in my home on the way to it's permanent residence, our town landfill.

The store was crowded and the lines at the check out were excruciatingly long. As I was waiting on line to pay the man and woman standing behind me began commenting on my adorable baby son. Of course I turned around to thank them.

The man behind me was holding a bottle of Windex. Not holding it down at his side like he was carrying it, but holding it up at chest level, like he was some sort of hand model holding the Windex in an ad.

'Your baby is really cute.' he said.

'Thanks.' I said.

'Really, he is. How old is he?' he said, with a flourish of the hand across his lonely bottle of Windex.

'He's two months old. Is that all you are buying?' I said watching his hand caress the bottle of Windex.

'Yes it is. Just one little thing.'

'Do you want to go in front of me?' I offered.

Him and his wife practically leap frogged over my cart they were so excited. We talked for a bit more and then fell silent waiting for the never ending line to move.

Suddenly I hear a man's hopeful voice behind me.

'I think your baby is cute too.'

Nope, I'm not that nice.

LOL!

I'll have to file that idea away. Another way of cutting in line is to have your baby start fussing when you only have a couple items, the people in front of you will let you cut so you will leave faster. :)

When you mentioned the Windex I was worried the guy was going to squirt the baby, a la My Big Fat Greek Wedding :-) I think I need more sleep.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)

Really great blog I've bookmarked it - now some really important bits of financial advice - as it is along the same lines I thought I would share this info with you.

We were paying far too much for items like kids clothes, games consoles, car insurance/home insurance/pet insurance, broadband, mobile phones and utilities/loans, debt consolidation lead etc. Then a friend of mine recommended a site called www.bargainplace.co.uk. We were able to get cheaper electricity, gas, mobile phone, broadband and loan deals at bargainplace. Thanks to my friend (and the site) I am saving something like £100 a month and can afford an extra holiday a year. Booked of course on www.bargainplace.co.uk. Thanks bargainplace ;-) !!

PS - I set up a website a couple of months ago and until recently I was getting no traffic at all. Then, I signed up to Linkreferral.com. Not only did I start getting visitors by the truck load, I also joined Affiliatewindow and am now making lots of money by partnering with companies like Argos, Next, John Lewis, Pixmania, Marks and Spencer, LX Direct, Littlewoods, Vodafone, phones4u, phones2u, Sky, NTL, Virgin Media, Talktalk, Woolworths, Empire Direct, ebay plus online gambling sites - you can make pot loads of cash.

Linkreferral.com is absolutelely free and has really helped my business take off.

PLUS!! there are opportunities to make money from Linkreferral as well - sign up for free and check out the website and email received for details

Follow these free tips and you won't go far wrong - that brand new BMW or Mercedes might just be around the corner!!
