I was loaded down at Krogers with a basket full of groceries in my left hand and a 18 pack of Bud in my right. Made it all the way to the self check out and hefted the beer to put on the shelf. The whole side ripped out and beer cans went flying everywhere. :eek: There were a few that had rolled six feet away where the attendant was standing. <sigh> I couldn’t just whistle and skulk quietly away. I had to own this mess. All 18 cans worth.
I still had the cardboard handle and a big strip of cardboard in my hand. I showed that to the attendant and explained I hadn’t dropped that beer. The carton ripped away from the handle. Probably because the cooler moistens the cardboard. A 18 pack of Bud in the cans weighs 12 lbs. I always clamp a death grip on those big bastards. 1
I guess I was tonights entertainment. Should have sold tickets and popcorn. Can’t help but shake my head and laugh. Never know what will happen when you get out of bed everyday.
I’m set for beer for a couple weeks. Hopefully there will be a different attendant working the next time I shop.
