I just learned that there were credit card issues – nationwide – at Kroger stores today.
I had to do a grocery stop after wotk today, and went to a local chain store instead (Busch’s – a Southeast Michigan grocery chain). It was closer to work – and I had a sixth sense that Kroger would be a shit show today.
By doing so, I not only snagged a 12 pack of delicious beer I probably wouldn’t have found at Kroger, had great service from the cashier and got to pay with plastic. Had I gone to Kroger after my irritating shift at work and had been told I couldn’t use my card (even though I did happen to have enough cash)? I would have gotten quite…stabby.
I use up too much dumb luck in situations like this to ever win a lottery prize! 😀
