Also, I had to walk out without buying my bag of apples because every line was way too long except for the one where the old Indian lady is the cashier and she's really slow so nobody gets in her line. The 15 items or less express line was being clogged up by some shaved-side-hair-manbun-earring-shaggy-beard wearing douche with about 30 items.
Hey man, some of us come here just to read about the best songs people heard while grocery shopping. Can you please keep your commentary and grocery exploits out of this thread so we don't sully it? Perhaps we should make a The Best Song that Plated as I Grocery Shopped Commentary thread so we can stop living like savages.

I dunno...as the creator of the thread I'm just as interested in poster's editorials as I am their song selection. As the great Rick Springfield once sang....

We all need the human touch
We all need the human touch
I need it, the human touch
We all need the human touch
We all need it, and I need it too!

This really happened: I Still Haven't found what I'm Looking For on the PA at Home Depot in Parkville over the weekend as I wandered about not finding what I was looking for with no one around to help.

AFOS-I Ran

1/11 H Street Whole Foods

What's the deal with the three major OJ companies all reducing the size of their containers from 59 ozs to 52 ozs and keeping the price the same? What a scam. My response is to decrease portion size.

that is happening with everything at grocery store and is super annoying...its a way of raising prices without being obvious to most people...

 Hendrix-All Along the Watchtower


these types of songs should be retired... they've been beaten to death... they are stale


is it a great version? yes but we have heard it so much


I'd rather they play Dylan's original... that is a shocker in its starkness

I don't listen to the radio and i don't own any Hendrix, so it's not that overdone to me. I'd also rather hear the Dylan original but of course they're going to go with the popular version at the grocery store..

Am surprised to read that... Hendrix's version is and has been everywhere for decades...but whatever, good for you


A lot of these classic rock songs are just so boring at this point... the songs that stand out at a grocery store are the more modern ones... when i go to a grocery store and i hear something from the 80s on I am pleased....

I was in Giant about a week ago and they played a song that was way too indie for the people shopping at the time. I could even catch any of the words to the song to look it up. If I had the guess, I would have guessed Built To Spill. After hearing them on the radio just now, I'm slightly more sure it was them....
