The 4th

Posted on 7/4/2000 to In General

Hope everyone had a nice 4th of July. We had a very nice, relaxing 4th. We went to see the Gladiator today. What an incredible movie! For those of you who haven't seen it, I highly recommend that you do...just leave the kids at home.

Future of Grocery Shopping

Posted on 7/4/2000 to In General

I have finally experienced the future of grocery store shopping...all I can say is, checkers and baggers beware, just not yet! Today, Gidgit and I shopped at our local King Soopers store where we decided to use their "check yourself" system. This system essentially eliminates the need for checkers and baggers as you do that yourself. Yup, you heard check your own goods and bag 'em yourself. Nice concept as long as everything scans and there are no price errors. Of course we all now how often that happens! Our checkout actually went smoothly...the best part is that there was next to no line to use the system. I'll definitely use it again.
