Speechless


Substitute this man for a woman; add a child (her own, I hope), a shopping cart, and the dairy aisle and now you know why I am speechless.

There I am just minding my own business do a little shopping for some delicious lemon blueberry bars. I turned into the dairy aisle and this is what I saw. A woman with a snake around her shoulders. I think I screamed a little (it caught me so off guard) and Leah started pointing and saying, "Snake, sssss, snake, sssss." So what did I do? Of course I grabbed some cream cheese and walked quickly away.

Literally speechless, I can't begin to describe what I feel about that. There are too many objections to a snake (and a shedding one at that) being in a grocery store for me to list. All I can seem to come up with is, "Uh..."

Why? Why would someone think that a snake is ok to take into a grocery car? People kill me! That is so disgusting! I seriously would've told the manager and made the lady take the snake out, yuck!

Grocery car? I think I meant grocery store! DUH!

I don't even think you are supposed to take your dog into the grocery store let alone a snake. I would have probably screamed really loud and caused a scene. Some pet owners need to realize that pets really aren't people!

Maybe it was a seeing eye snake?? Yeah probably not!

Ew! I know that some grocery stores allow service animals, but I'm not sure that qualifies a snake. Maybe like a blind persons' seeing eye dog, but pretty sure not a snake. EWW!

Sarah said...

Wow. That is really frightening. I hate snakes so much...I think most normal people have some sort of aversion to them; you'd think she'd have enough common sense NOT to bring hers out in public! Weird!

Wow!! That is one of the weirdest things i have ever heard. How can someone be so crazy that they would bring their snake into a grocery store!!
