A Trip to COSTCO

Rate this post

Umm Yum. Boy These people think of everything.

Yesterday I was at my local COSTCO buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet, Biscuit, the Wonder Dog and was in the checkout line when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

What did she think I had, an elephant? So since I’m retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn’t have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again.. I added that I probably shouldn’t, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Purina nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.) Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish Setter‘s Arse, and a car hit us both.

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.

Costco won’t let me shop there anymore.

Better watch what you ask retired people. They have all the time in the world to think of crazy things to say. Forward this (especially) to all your retired friends……it will be their Laugh for the day

  1. The best part of your post, Steve, is the gif cartoon!

    Just why do dogs like to drink from the toilet? LOL

    • Eowyn that is one of the many mysteries we were never meant to figure out. Just like the Bermuda triangle, UFO’s and where did that one sock go in the dryer. 🙂

  2. I look at the toilet bowel question from a dog’s perspective….
    “why do they keep doing those things in my water bowel…”

  3. haha I love to laugh and that was funny!

  4. Ha, retired people have so much fun!
