I went to Aldi. This was the third time I’ve ever been there in my life. The first time was with Will-A-Rama, she was looking for vinyl floor tile. That left a really bad taste in my mouth. I shouldn’t be buying food from the same place that is selling asbestos linoleum remants from the 60′s. Fine, maybe they were asbestos free, but still.
If there is ever a family gathering where Aldi isn’t brought up in a positive light by my Grandmother that means she has gone to greener pastures. Easter, Christmas, Lincoln’s birthday, she can’t help herself. I guess Aldi is to her what Costco is to me. I had to give it another shot, I just couldn’t hear her talk about it one more time. According to her I live by a “nice Aldi”, apparently even Aldi isn’t immune to the class system. I have to say, I was kind of impressed. Did I just type that? Impressed by Aldi? I’m not about to throw it into my bi weekly store rotation by any means but when I just need one or two produce items I’ll be considering it.
