I hate change. It annoys me. It confuses me. It throws me off my game. When I find something that works for me I stick with it until it doesn’t work anymore.
For example; I only use Degree deodorant. Given the choice, I only shave with Neutrogena Skin Clearing shave cream. I only run in Asics running shoes.
I go to the same barber at the same barbershop because I don’t have to tell him how to cut my hair. He knows how I want it done. He knows where my bald spot is and how to disguise it.
I like Basic 4 breakfast cereal and I know exactly where to find it on the shelf.
Well, I used to know where to find it until Kroger decided to change up everything. I used to be able to do my groceries in no time flat, because I knew what I want and I where to find it. I still know what I want but I no longer know where to find it.
Kroger, in their infinite wisdom, decided to mess with me today. All I wanted was some fruit, milk, aluminum foil and heavens forbid, a box of Basic 4.
I managed to find everything else relatively easily. But it was an expedition to find the cereal aisle. It then took me another eighteen and a half minutes going through each and every cereal box trying to find a box of Basic 4.
Did I find it? No! No, I did not!
Why? Because Kroger Food Stores decided to change up the store layout. On top of that neither I, nor the store clerk could locate a single box of Basic 4. So I was forced to change. Kroger, the evil food store, forced me to settle for Muesli. What is Muesli anyway?
It looks like Basic 4…but it is not the same!
Change. It’s not permanent. I’m going to Wal-Mart tomorrow in search of my favourite cereal.
