Because of the moments in between calls I decided I needed to buy a coloring book and/or puzzle book to occupy my “free” time. Thus, I headed to the Dollar Store today after work. Here is my story:
I drove over to The Dollar Store and parked in the parking lot. I walked into the store and was amazed, this was the most packed Dollar Store I had ever seen. There was so much stuff. As I walked around the store I was surprised to see bedding items like comforters and sheets. “There’s no way that stuff is $1.00,” I thought, “Maybe this store sells stuff that’s more than $1.00.” I was a bit suspicious but I let it slip and kept shopping.
So I looked around for some coloring books and found a few. I looked at the price. The barcode said “Big Lots $2”. “Big Lots? I guess they own the Dollar Store. Interesting.” Little bit odd but I let it slip and kept on shopping.
I found what I wanted and headed to the check out. I saw employees wearing shirts that said “Big Lots”. The cashier rung me up and handed me my stuff in a Big Lots bag. It still didn’t hit me.
Only after I walked out the door did I finally realize I had been in Big Lots the whole time. The Dollar Store was right next door and I hadn’t even noticed I was entering the wrong store. Oh well, at least I have a coloring book.
