It Writes Itself

Overheard in the Dollar Store:
Old Woman 1: You finding everything OK?
Old Woman 2: Well, yes. But, I can't find a price tag on any of this stuff!
Old Woman 1: That's because it's all a dollar.
Old Woman 2: Are you sure?
Old Woman 1: That's what it says on the sign.

Overheard in the Dollar Store 2:
Woman In Line: Char! Oh my Gawd, girl! How you doin'?
Obviously Char: Fine, fine.
Woman In Line: Whatcha doin' here?
Obviously Char: Buying a T.V. dinner.

Overheard in the Dollar Store 3:
Little Girl: Mom. Mom. Mom!
Woman: What?!
Little Girl: Can I get a constipation book?
Woman: CoMPOSItion book?
Little Girl: Yeah.
Woman: They're up front.

Hoop Quote Of The Day:

If you had a dolla stow on the internet tubes it would be my new fave.

Our local dolla stow was selling home pregnancy test kits in the checkout lane, right next to packs of gum and candy. Bold print on the front of the test kit stated that it was "Ok'd" by the FDA. Not approved, mind you, but just "Ok'd".

i once accidentally broke something in a dollar store. i decided to walk out and not worry about it. a mother in the store with her small child pointed at me and told her kid, "that's a bad man." yep, that's right.

What were you doing in a dollar store?

We don't have them here, would love to see what they sell :(

Oh man, I had no idea dollar stores were so rife with entertainment.
We have dolleramas here.

Dollar stores rule! Between those and the yard sales around here, I could have blogging material for the rest of my life. LOL!

And dude, if I could find a constipation book, I'd totally buy it. I could use some good constipation. Trust me on this one. ;)

I wouldn't buy anything meant to be eaten at a dolla stow. I'm even suspicious of the candy that has a shelf life of a millennium.

The Dollar Store is one of Brendan's favorite stores. It's great for Mom's with limited income too! Except, I do not usually buy meals there.

But, they are great to buy candy that you can take to the movies. So much cheaper!

I buy all my reading glasses and sunglasses at dollar stores, because I lose them all the time!

And the dollar stores are great for stocking stuffers at Christmas. Our kids are older, like living on their own older, and we still get them stockings for Christmas and find the goofiest stuff from the dollar store, like toy handcuffs, condoms, silly putty, great fun stuff!

so i suppose that there are actually freezers for the tv dinners? or was this woman mistaken about the breadth of offerings at the dollar store?

 
At 29 July, 2008, Blogger gary rith said...

I don't know if I would like that TV dinner very much....

it's been far too long since i've been in a "dolla Stow" or anything else of the like. i think ive been missing out.

i always thought the constipation books were kept in the rear

Never know it could be a great business opportunity and if not look at all the blog fodder it would produce :)
I failed on my WWC again, I don't know how, but I did. Does that I mean I get whipped with a spork???

There is always quality entertainment to be found at the dollar store.

 
At 29 July, 2008, Blogger Maggie said...

yeah I'm thinking t.v. dinner was bad enough when it was at the grocery store, but I don't even want to think how it landed at the dollar store or why in the hell anyone would consent to put that in their mouth?
