I know I'm getting older, when a grocery store grand opening excites me beyond words. I've been waiting for our Publix to open for months now and it did not disappoint.
The shining star for this store is their Meat Dept. Manager. And here's why.
While chatting with my friend Shannon outside the lobster tank, the Meat Dept. Manager stepped out to comment on how cute our kids are. He thanked us for shopping there today and then told us that he had been with the company since 1976. "You know, before you girls were born." Shannon & I looked at each other with disbelief. US girls? Now, I'm not saying we look old or anything, but I can safely say that it's been at LEAST 10 years since I've been carded for anything. As I wiped the tear of joy from my eye, I had to stifle the urge to hug the man.
So, Publix is officially the only store I will shop with now. And I hope the Meat Dept. Manager enjoys his balloon bouquet tomorrow. Is that going too far? Nah, I didn't think so.
