I do. If I hate one thing about being an adult (more than bills, of course), it’s grocery shopping. There’s nothing good about it. I scowl going there. I scowl coming back. I scowl when I’m home and done. I hate grocery shopping so much, that it’s beginning to make me hate food. I make myself go once every month and a half. And I spend about $100 (that’s with toiletries and other various things that I need). And it KILLS me.
So here are some of the reasons I hate grocery shopping:
I hate weaving through the aisles.
I HATE pushing a cart-especially the janked up ones.
I hate the mood most people are in at the grocery store (me included).
I hate when I see that the price of something has gone up.
I hate that it takes so many raw ingredients to cook a good meal.
I hate buying fresh fruit and vegetables because they go bad so quickly.
I hate buying food that requires a specific cooking tool.
I hate the long lines at the check-out.
I hate the way most cashiers put food in the bags.
I hate reloading up the cart.
I hate putting all the groceries in my car (they spill out of the bags sometimes).
I hate carrying them in through two locked doors on my apartment. All by myself.
I hate putting them away once I get them in the house.
And I HATE HATE HATE that when it’s all said and done, I have nothing to show for my money (besides the fact that I’m alive). And to be honest, I’d rather save three grocery trips and buy a really expensive purse. At least I’ll get to see it for more than a month and a half. Or some clothes (which would probably be smaller sizes if I skipped three trips to the grocery store har har har).
I don’t know what I’m going to do when I have to grocery shop for a family (maybe I won’t have one just for this reason). If I have to go every week, I’ll shoot myself in the foot. And the grocery bill will multiply by like 4! NO NO NO. I won’t do it.
I’ll stick to my freezable veggies and my bagged apples that take a month and a half to go bad. I’ll make meals out of saltines, ketchup, and sliced cheese. I love cereal, which is great, because I only have to buy milk and cereal. And I buy almond milk because I am lactose intolerant, and you know what? I’m so cheap that I MIX IT WITH WATER TO MAKE IT LAST LONGER!
I hate food. And I hate grocery shopping.
Which is why I’m making Mike take me tonight when he gets to town, because he seems to enjoy it.
Happy Friday, and on a wild tangent, YAY WILLIAM AND KATE!
