The perks of my job are many, the aggravating things of my job are few. Gratitude for my job is lacking most days which is a shameful state of my being.
After delivering in Charlotte, North Carolina on Monday then make the return trip to Massachusetts we stopped in Statesville, North Carolina to shop at the JR Tobacco Outlet store.
JR Tobacco Outlet is a store similar to TJMaxx, Ross, Kohl’s and other outlet stores that sell out of date fashions and stuff other stores can’t get rid of after a clearance sale.
Name brand nail polish in nearly every color imaginable.
Sorry for some fuzzy photos. I was afraid I’d get busted taking photos and be halled out by the armed security guards that prowl the place and check the bags on the way out.
It has been a long time since I’ve bought cosmetics so I don’t know if $4.00 is a bargain for this Almay product.
I do know that $8.95 for a bath sheet is a great price.
I’m not a lithe and slender woman. Regular bath towels leave as much of me exposed as they cover. I’m going to be doing another give away and am leaning toward a set of four of these bath sheets. I am a little reluctant because most women have a color scheme for their bathrooms and plain white might not be welcomed.
Bed sets I passed on that idea. Same reason, plus I don’t know what size of bed is standard. Joe and I have a king sized waterbed.
Kitchen wares of all kinds can be found at JR Tobacco.
JR’s website is all about the cigars they sell. In their stores, of which there are 3 located in Statesville, Burlington, and Selma, North Carolina is a humid cigar store.
Signs and plaques are sold throughout the store.
I found a 400 thread count set of king sized sheets for our bed and Joe bought some cigars. I’m not one to go shopping. Get in and out of a store as quickly as possible all the while having a nagging feeling I’ve forgotten something. That usually means stopping once again later down the road to buy what I forgot.
We will be going by JR’s once again in about three days delivering four more trucks to Charlotte then heading home.
Yesterday was an aggravating day. Accidents and road construction had traffic stopped off and on most of our trip back up toward Massachusetts.
One 25 mile stretch took us 3-1/2 hours to creep along. A line of vehicles in front of us as far as I could see and a line behind us. Crapazoid!
That blew our plans of picking up trucks around noon today.
Grumpy Gertrude is signing out. 😡
