Lesson of the day...

When returning empty bottles and cans to the grocery store, make sure you go either early in the morning or late at night. That way you avoid the mad rush of Homeless, Seniors, and (probably) Homeless Seniors.

I just learned how near-violent container redemption can truly be. I got shoved, someone tried to take my bag of cans, and almost found myself in a brawl over the plastic bottle machine. (A tottering old man tried to claim ownership of it after I'd begun placing my bottles in there. "I'm using that machine, young lady..." He was no where in sight when I'd begun shoving the soda bottles in there.)


Somehow the $8.45 didn't seem worth it when I was through.
