This is how cheap my mother is. There was a “ten for ten” special at Aldi… and now we have ALL THESE ENGLISH MUFFINS. While a “ten for ten” special would be pretty cheap anywhere, at Aldi it’s basically theft. You see, Aldi is the cheapest grocery store you could ever imagine. It’s even cheaper than Wal-Mart. Can’t fathom that? I know. It’s difficult, but let me help you out. In order to understand the level of cheapskate Aldi has reached, one need look no further than the system Aldi employs to keep people from stealing their carts. At Aldi, all of the carts are kept right outside the store joined together with small chains. In order to detach a cart from the chain, you have to put a quarter into a little slot which unlocks one cart from the rest of them. When you’ve finished shopping, you reattach the cart to the rest of them and the quarter you put in comes back out. You’d think that Aldi would lose all of their carts, not so. The people who shop at Aldi are SO CHEAP that they would rather get their quarters back than take a shopping cart.
