I usually shop at Wally World for my staples and at Sam's Club for meat and stocking up. On occasion I do shop at Albertsons or Kroger (they're within a block of each other) for quick pick up items. When I was at Kroger about 3 months ago, I was talked into one of their "favored shopper" cards...you know the ones that some stores make you carry to get a "discount" on products.
Well, I put the Kroger card in a drawer and promptly forgot it, and on several trips I was asked for it and couldn't produce it. When I found it in a drawer the other day, I put it on my key chain so I wouldn't forget it. Today I went to the store to pick up a few things and while in line I remembered the discount card. When it was my turn, the first thing I did was proudly hand the key chain to the checker. I was so happy to have remembered without being asked for it! I even told the checker "...I usually forget my Kroger card, so I'm giving it to you right away so I won't forget!" With a sympathetic smile on her face she said "yes, but, this isn't Kroger."
