Hmmm...Kayelle, I'll have to check our local Rite Aid and see if they've eliminated shopping carts. I don't go there very often and when I do, it's only for a few things, so I've never really noticed. Curious now.
This is a one horse town Addie, certainly not Boston. I'm sure it's not a RiteAid policy to get rid of shopping carts, but it ticked me off with that kind of "oh well" attitude. I did report the store number and complaint just as I wrote it above, so we'll see.

Whoops.....you're in a one horse town also Cheryl.....I thought I was responding to Addie. lol You have shopping carts?

Sorry you have a sore and stiff neck. Himself is getting over one, but he certainly knows how his happened. He slipped in the shower! I had my earplugs and, sound asleep down the hall, didn't hear a thing. Maybe he needs an "I've fallen and I can't get up" button.

Can't blame me. In over 14 years of living here I've never used the shower. With only two people in the house and two full-size bathrooms, we decided the happiest thing in the world would be a bathroom for Himself (the one off the master bedroom, with the shower stall) and I'd take the one with the tub. But all I do is shower in it. I just like all the extra room.

Life is better this way. Himself always lets a family of ducks play in the sink whenever he uses it. The counter is always wet all over. And then I lean against it and I'm wet all over. Life is good with His and Hers bathrooms.

It started yesterday with just some stiffness, then progressively got worse. The pain was severe enough that I only got an hour and a half of sporadic sleep, tried both lying down and sitting upright, and can't turn or nod my head without pain. Lovely. Aleve took some of the edge off this morning after aspirin didn't do anything. What a PITA.
A number of years ago I had the same thing. My neck froze so that my head was tilted sideways. I had to go for physical therapy. The therapist showed me a trick that has kept me free of neck pain for more than 35 years now. Whenever I think my neck is going to get a cramp, I tuck my chin into my chest. It loosens up the neck muscles instantly.

Guess who's writing a letter to Rite Aid Drug Stores Inc. ?
Almost every building in Boston that has more than one floor and an elevator, has a shopping cart on the premises. We have two in this building. Building managers can sometimes call the stores and have them picked up. But for the most part, they stay where they are. One store said they considered it part of the expense of staying in business.

Our Rite Aid has five stairs to get up to the next level and pharmacy. Has to be the smallest drug store I have ever seen. And the lift for the handicap is a joke. Most of the time it doesn't work. And the aisles are so narrow, I doubt a shopping cart would fit in one.

Has anyone in town considered having the burro carry your purchases up and down the aisles?

Rob likes to have just about everything out on the counter, I like things tidy, we have separate bathrooms and it's wonderful!
