I thought if I went to the supermarket at 3 p.m., everyone would still be home watching the Eagles game. I was wrong. It was even worse than a blizzard crowd, because they were buying so much more food; a lot of people had two full carts.

And then you had to stand and wait just to get your cart around a corner.

I didn’t have that much to get, but the computer went down in the first line I stood in. I finally gave up and went into another line. Same thing. I spent about an hour waiting in line. I read every issue of every junk tabloid they had and I’m glad to be home.

    The crowds at a local Shop Rite Saturday night were huge and their purchases equally large. Maybe, here in suboonia northern NJ, that’s due to the electricity outages, where so many lost all their frozen and refrigerated food. As I did.

    The other thing that I noticed was the store I went to had nobody to bag. That simple act would have made everything move all so much faster. But I guess the thought of having 5 to 10 more employees is something that they are not willing to do.

    My store did have baggers working in every lane. But it was still insane.
