The grocery store ladies, well, I really like them. They are very nice, and bossy. Sometimes I bring a note with me and they always are very helpful, and sometimes bossy. There have been several occasions where they have discouraged me from buying what I want and tried to get me to buy something else. They also caution me when I buy things. I went in for brown rice tonight, and this caused a stir. Finally the lady I have named Heidi said, "oh, so long!" She was implying that it must be cooked for a long time. Sometimes I get the feeling that they think I don't know anything about anything. In fact I get that feeling a lot.
