Pak n Save Bingo
Sometimes, usually on weekend evenings, Pak’n’Save is the worst place in the world. Full of people clogging up the aisles with their carts (this particular store, for some reason, does not offer shopping baskets so everyone has a cart), stopping to ponder the various Wacky Weekend sales and just generally getting in my way. Also, Pak n Save invariably sees the weekend rush as a great time to stock shelves. So there are even more carts and boxes and people in my way.
Anyway, my bad attitude towards pretty much everything for the past several months has finally driven me crazy. So to keep from having a complete melt-down next time I go grocery shopping (meltdowns in stores have recently become a hobby), I’m taking a little dash of Mary Poppins-esque whimsy with me. With every job that must be done, there is an element of fun: you find the fun and snap, the job becomes Pak n Save bingo. Simply print out your bingo board and off to the store!
If you get a whole line, Congratulations! You’ve won the justification to treat yourself to Pak’n’Save’s finest bottle of $5 wine.
It’s the little things that keep us sane and make us giggle.
