I was just thinking | whatsandrathinks

Trader Joe’s is my favorite place to shop. I love the whole vibe there. The look, the mood, the employees. [I also love Target which, coincidentally, also starts with T. Weird.]

One day, at Trader Joe’s, an employee saw me debating over which cookies to buy. I had it narrowed down to two. This guy came over and asked me if I needed help. I told him I’d never had either of them and couldn’t decide (shocker since I question everything). He said, ‘Why don’t you try them?‘ and proceeded to rip open both boxes right there in front of me so I could have a taste. Who does that? This guy.


p.s.— Then there was the guy at checkout who gave me my change and said, ‘May the force be with you.’

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Oh how I wish Trader Joe’s was a little closer … on the other hand, I always end up with three healthy things and a cartful of candy, cookies and snacks, so … 😜

  6. I love both stores, too. I saw a taste test recently that said their butter was the best for baking — and the cheapest, too.
