Spent an hour and a half today in Baby's R Us putting together a registry for our tiny son. Most of that time was spent figuring out what not to buy. The baby industry is such a racket--I mean who needs baby wipes warmers?
Outside, in the parking lot, a worker was returning shopping carts. He looked around to see if no one was watching, then ran with a stack of carts as fast as he could and jumped on the back, riding them for 50 yards or so. You could see a cartoon word bubble pop up above his head that read "This is the best part of my day."
