Bear necessity shopping

Published / by paul / Leave a Comment

The Kings Beach, California Safeway supermarket has a new regular customer, well visitor. So does the Chevron mini mart down the street. A local brown bear has figured out that the automatic doors will let him in whenever he wants. A surveillance video recorded on Aug. 30 shows a bear lying on the Kings Beach Chevron convenience store floor eating candy and crackers. The hungry visitor spent 20 minutes inside the store before it finally had its fill. A couple of weeks before, a bear was inside the store, followed by a customer swatting at the bear’s backside. And a surveillance video from Aug. 29 shows an employee trying to prevent a bear from entering the store, until the bear makes a quick move forward, lunging at the employee who quickly backs away. The BEAR League has advised the gas station to use Pine-Sol on the entrances as a deterrent for the bears and turn off their automatic doors.

Un Bearable Shopping dilemmas

I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day, but I couldn’t find any…

How come anything you buy will go on sale next week?

I went to the filling station this morning for petrol. The first pump didn’t work, neither did the second pump, nor the third. I went into the shop and said to the person working behind the counter, “Have you got your pumps on?” She said, “No, I’m wearing Ugg Boots.”

You ever go shopping for a really cute, little, sexy black dress – and you come home with an extra-large pepperoni pizza?
