where: Home Sense
what: a canvas that was for sale. i thought it was a motto a lot more people out christmas shopping should have. it would make for less elbowing, bumping and being bashed in the heels with shopping carts.
p.s. in case you thought I was running into people with my cart. I wasn’t. I would never do anything like that. I just turn and grin at the too-close-line-stander and then take a step forward. they usually follow with a step forward as well not getting at all that i’m vying for a little more personal space. then, the second time when they bump me (cause you know they will) i bump back at just the right time because I’m expecting it and then they actually notice and think they bumped me really hard. they apologize profusely. of course I tell them it’s no big deal. (it is!) and then I say, “it happens” (to people who don’t know how to line up!!) and then I hope they’ve learned their lesson and will forever leave more space as I walk away wincing and rubbing my heel. (i don’t! but that’d be funny!!)
