I Know What This Is Like #1LinerWeds

Found this on Instagram and knew I had this week’s one-liner. Ain’t it the truth?


One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word about the AMC Gremlin. If you had to compete with the three biggest car companies in America, what would you do?

In AMC’s case, sell out to Renault first, then to Chrysler, who kept the Jeep brand.

  1. LOL – This rings true for me and Mr. Our local Walmart just completed a total revamp of the store. It’s horrible…and it takes forever to find what we’re looking for now. Sigh… Anyhow, love the meme, I laughed out loud.

    1. That’s where you give the people in the blue vests plenty to do. Walmarts are huge anyway, and it’s hard to find things in them in the first place. Then, they manage to rearrange everything before they’ve changed the signs…

      1. LOL – Mr. went shopping today and I asked him how it went – “It was horrible, school supply shopping mania, and not a thing was where I thought it would be – it was a zoo!” I thanked him for taking one for the team and making sure the pets had food. And me too!

        1. Walmart’s been around for a long time, but I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been in one. Nothing against them, but it’s hard to find stuff in them. One of those times was during back-to-school, and the school supplies aisle looked like a war zone…

          1. Yeah, they have. We’re kind of small townish, so we have limited options within a reasonable drive, so Walmart is easy access. But, when they change the store, GRRR. Yes, school shopping is the worst time to go. Glad my kids are grown and we don’t have that to do. I do miss the smell of new crayons, though.

            1. No one says you can’t buy yourself crayons. Hey, I would if it weren’t for this crippled hand (and there’s a little voice in the back of my head telling me that if I had played with crayons after my stroke, the hand would have recovered).

              We live in a suburb of Atlanta, and had Walmart been around when we first moved here we might be more likely to go there, because there weren’t many shopping options unless you were willing to drive. Thing was, Walmart arrived after Target, KMart, Home Depot and a couple of grocery stores came to the area. The Walmart is still doing quite well, they’re just not as close to us as other places.

              1. I’d be silly and by the HUGE box and then never use them. We all should use muscles we’ve neglected, it’s what unfortunately happens to us. You’ve made up with it, though, I would never know you didn’t have two working hands.
                Sometimes I think there are too many shopping options? Does it affect quality? Hmm…? Another topic to research?!

                1. Mary bought herself a box of 64 crayons and never used them; I think she wanted to do some charting for her knitting. I think she still has them.

                  The market tends to handle the whole “too many options” situations. It’s why you end up with shopping malls with a bunch of closed stores. Kind of brutal, but that’s the way it is.

  2. It’s just not nice to rearrange the grocery store! And why do they stop carrying my favorite products is not nice, as well. And they wonder why Amazon is so successful!

    1. Mary doesn’t take me shopping any more, my knees have gotten so bad, but she tells me all about looking for things that used to be in one location and now have been moved elsewhere. It can be a real pain in the backside especially if you don’t that item all that frequently.

  3. Absolutely, positively true! I get enraged when they change the set-up in our local Jewel. It ruins my whole Day. Thankfully they don’t do it often. I do suspect they have a meeting and someone says, ” The old people look too happy; let’s change the layout and get them grumpy again.”

    1. Tex had a whole system where he typed out the list of the stuff they always got at the store, organized the way the store was laid out. He made a bunch of copies, and each week circled the things they needed, including quantity, so it was just a matter of working his way through the store. I can only imagine what reorganizing the store did to his system…

  4. It’s not the rearranging so much that bothers me…it’s when they stop carrying one of my favorite and often purchased item that makes me crazy. It happened this past week and I’m still not over it.

    1. My favorite is when they have a store directory attached to your cart, and it’s out of date. If they’re going to all that trouble, they should at least keep that up to date.
