Or, you can just go through the self-check (at least at Walmart) and not have to deal with anyone except the overseer cashier saying "Have a nice day" as you walk away.

I used to get a "yeah, right lady, get a better story" look from the guy at the Liquor store. When I owned my former horse Red, he had anhydrosis. I was told to give him a beer...he didn't like Budweiser and then I was told give him a Guinness Beer. So I trotted myself to the liquor store and asked if I could buy one. Heck, those things are expensive and if he didn't like them I didn't want to be stuck with them (I don't drink!!!). He said No....but had a 4 pack. I explained they were for my horse - and he looked at me a little funny. Got up to the counter and remembered I need something else. I said "I need Everclear please - for my cakes". I explained that I was a cake decorator and used the Everclear to paint on cakes or clean the powdered sugar off of them.

ahahahahahahhaha he looked at me like I was nuts. They still do - especially when I insist on a receipt for taxes!!!

I've had some fun chats with salesmen in tourism tack shops, asking to tell me about different yachting and climbing ropes, and seeing the odd looks in their faces when I explain that I need the ropes for lead lines and rope halters. They are every time like "such a waste of a good rope!"

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

QOS, that totally reminds me of something that happened to a couple of my friends in high school. We're Mormon, so we definitely don't drink, however when my friends and I would get together to watch movies, we'd always mix up virgin drinks (virgin margaritas were the usual, but we'd also make Shirley Temples and daquiris) to go with our popcorn. Anyway, two of my guy friends were getting supplies for movie night and found that they needed grenadine. So, they headed over to the liquor section at Safeway and were searching for it...when up walks one of our leaders from church! We live in a very small town (only one grocery store), so it was inevitable that they see someone they know. Anyway, this leader walks up and says "Whatcha lookin' for, boys?" They turned beet red and mumbled that they were trying to find the grenadine. Luckily, they found it in a few seconds and, after a hasty goodbye to the leader, dashed out of the store. They NEVER lived that down!

I don't have any weird stories about things that I bought for horses, but I did get a really strange look once when I walked in, bought a george foreman grill and some dog food, and walked out ;) I'm sure that the lady thought I was going to grill the dog food.

My biggest problem is pulling a pocketful of change out of my jeans to pay for coffee and it's full of hay. Or someone is in need of a sharp knife and what do I pull out, but a pocket knife. Non horse people don't clue in as to why a woman would carry a knife.

I enjoy going to Wal-Mart in jeans, half chaps and boots. I'm sure I smell pretty good as well after 3 hours of stall cleaning. The looks I get are priceless, the men stare at my chaps, kids just look at me like I am weird. When I was a teenager, my mother was well known for wearing her coveralls to Wal-Mart.

I think feed stores and tack shops need to start carrying these items, especially feminine products! They'd make a killin!

Fly I was thinking the same thing. When i open my tack shop I will definitely be open on Sunday mornings and convenience will be key! I wanna have a horse back ride through part of it for sodas and stuff! :)
