Magical gloves

Here goes a shorty story about the supermarket.
Now with this virus the supermarkets here in Spain give put plastic gloves in the entrance.
The other day, since they stack them so packed on a box, I spend half an hour to
put the freaking glove on. Plus since they are so packed, they stick together
and when I pulled one out 50 went to the floor.
Now I have become an expert at putting on those shitty gloves that makes not rational
sense, how many people stuck their hands in there before I did?

Anyways, go put on the gloves quickly, I pass a 60 year old man would be my guess,
but very well dressed, nice white Polo t-shirt, nice jeans, very hip gentleman.
Now a days, it is the man doing the shopping I did notice that in the supermarket.
All men, and you got to understand that at least here in Spain these older men are
not use to go to do the shopping.

Point being, I get into the supermarket after putting the dummy gloves,
I see this man struggling to put one, it fells to the floor he looks at it
as if it was a perons from Mars and says calmly “fuck” just staring down
at the glove. I was thinking is this gentleman going to pick it up or does
he expect for the glove to jump to his hand…

Later on I´m on the line to pay, I see the same gentleman trying to weight the groceries
on the scale, the scale here you weith the groceries you enter a number and it gives you
a ticket that give you the amount to pay, then pass it on to the register. Again you need
little bags to weigh the grocecries and this guy is sturggling, agan it all falls apart
he just looks at it and again “fuck”. Not a “fuck!!!” Just a murmor “fuck” and the gentleman
still watching at the mess. It had me smiling, he suddently looks up and sees me,
he just shrugs as if saying “Hey, what can I do? I just discovered America”

This corona thing is good for feminist, they are making all guys do the shooping.
The gentleman was unique, you think in his 60 years of life ever went shopping?
No, this was a complete new experience but the tone he said the F word was funny.
At least I´m not the only not experience one, more than him for sure, but not the only
male dummy when it comes to go to the supermarket, know where each thing is, prices,
get the ones on the back ot the shelfe´s since they have more time on expiration date, e.t.c.
Just a funny escape of the quarantine.

    1. Hope I made a semi good description, not really but I tried. It was kind of weird and funny and scary and you might as go along with comedy,
      Appreciate you reading and commenting Andrada

  1. Oh, I can just see this happening. As it is, my husband has been doing all the grocery shopping lately, too. Strange days, for sure. 🙂

    1. I just found it funny, this man in his years….. trying to figure it out, I must say that us younger guys are quite adaptable. Yet again what do you expect if you (in his case) are thrown in that “weird” situation. At least he took it calmly and when he saw me smiling (sorry I couldn´t resist but smile at his F word and hime trying to fix.. or not fix, but trying) to shook his arms and lift his eyebrows as if saying that ” I just discovered America” plus trying my best on it.
      I´m sorry for your husband…. 😉 Kidding. He is doing I would think as much as we guys can. Stay safe and thanks for dropping by and commenting.
