Mom’s Shopping Story

I went to the Shoppette on Redstone Arsenal.  The Shoppette is a small store with only a hand full of cash registers to check out.

I had two items in my shopping cart.  I walked up to the cash register and the cashier asked me if I had already paid for my items.  I said, no.

Then all sorts of things started going through my mind.  What did she think I did, go to one of the other cash registers and pay then walk over to her cash register after paying for my items.

I also wondered what she would have said if I said, yes I already paid.  Would she have just let me walk out of the store even though I had not paid of my items.

They say there is always a first time for everything and I must admit this is the first time I have ever been asked if I had already paid for my items while waiting at the cash register to pay.

I just keep thinking about her and laughing.

MRI Rejection

I had a MRI on my knee scheduled for this week, but wasn’t able to get it done.

I have a BAHA (Bone Anchored Hearing Aid) implant and was supposed to bring a card that was issued after surgery regarding the BAHA and MRI safety.  However, I lost that card a long time ago.

I showed up for my MRI and the technician refused to do it without any safety documentation.

I went home and tried to find the card, but never did.  However, I did find a prescription that was written for me two years ago that I never filled.

For some reason, stuff like this happens to me a lot.  Oh well, I guess that’s how it goes when you have a laid-back, free-spirited, type B personality.
