that was nice :)

tonight after the gym, i was planning to stop and get a few things from the grocery. (yes, the GROCERY.)  too bad that i thought i might be low and had to stop at my least favorite store to go to when i'm in a hurry. that's right ... wal. mart.

i checked. 61. it felt a lot lower than 61 though. so i went into hell wally world and noticed they had reorganized everything. AWESOME. luckily, i was right by the pharmacy and it didn't take long to find glucose tabs. but then, of course, i spent like five minutes trying to open the damn plastic wrap while not ripping the bar code. super annoying when you're low, easily irritated and shaking.

fast forward to check out. i had a few groceries since i was there and didn't want to make another stop. as the guy scanned the already opened glucose tabs, he handed them to me and said 'you okay?' it kind of caught me off guard, that has NEVER happened. people don't really know what they are, or they just ... don't care and don't ask. 'yes, thank you,' i replied.

how NICE! the crap store had a really nice employee tonight.

that made me feel better. thanks, nice check out lane guy. :)


  1. That was very nice. And I'm glad you're okay.

  2. It's good to know there are caring people in "hell", er-Wally World. :)

    Glad you are alright and that you got the darn tabs open in time.

  3. Meredith, that's scary. Thankfully you were finally able to unwrap the container.

    I wrote a blog post about the design of a container of Dex4 tablets. Then last month I met someone who was a member of the board of CanAm who makes these tablets. He actually thanked me for pointing out the flaw, saying that stores were pushing for higher security. So if those were wally world Dex4 tablets, then mention the brand. Maybe someone from CanAm will notice and the design will improve. He told me my blog post helped argue against more wrapping, and I'll bet yours does also.
