I have now read both of her books, volume one and two. They're quick reads, and I laughed a lot while reading them (the other parents in the orthodonitist's office gave me looks. I've been there a lot lately because Donny is in the four-appointment process of getting braces this summer.)
You really should read this collection of letters. You can order them from Lulu Books in print version to be mailed to you or you can download them e-book style. Let me just share a few quick glimpses into what you can expect out of these books:
1. People show up to shop in odd outfits, P.J.'s and barely there swim suits.
2. People who have odd comments or share inappropriate snippets of their personal life.
3. Creepy people who will totally freak you out!
4. Rude people who take out their frustrations on the cashier, or chat on their cell phone, or who demand unreasonble requests.
5. couples who treat each other disrespectfully and air dirty laundry in public...or mother/daughter and other family combinations with hilarious interactions, both good and bad.
6. the weird combinations of stuff people buy that leave her wondering what they're up to...
The late night customers are the some of the scariest.
I enjoyed these two books so much. Carrie is wonderful at finding humor in every situation, and some of the stuff she has had to deal with, wow! As she frequently states, "Laughter is the social glue." I'm impressed.
So, please, buy or download these books or check out her site, because she often shares these stories on her blog too.
AND, since I won these books in a giveaway, I have decided to share the wealth and pass them along in another giveaway!
SO, if you want to receive this HILARIOUS collection, leave a comment on my site letting me know you're interested and give me a good grocery store story. (and go check out Carrie's site The Gremlin Wrangler).
I was trying to think of a good story of my own...I've lost children in the store, lost my elderly father on his scooter in the store (and he's dangerous on that thing). I had emergency runs to the bathroom in there...I could go on and on.
I'll let my little gremlins pull the winner out of a hat midnight Saturday night. Well, the contest cut off is midnight, I won't let the boys pick a winner out of the hat until Sunday morning, but you get the idea.
Everytime I go to the grocery store now, I feel like I have inside information, and I keep an eye out for those crazies. :o)
