Can't Make This Up!

So my oldest and I went out to do some simple shopping. A quick trip, or at least it should have been. Now keep in mind, the following tale is completely true.

As we pull onto Clay Rd. we notice traffic is backing up, approaching the Brighton Henrietta Town Line Rd. we see there is a huge accident blocking both routes to the place we want to go, spitting distance from the intersection. So, we turn around and go the long way (adding nearly 2 miles to get to a place right there) when I realize I really need gas.

Okay, fine...there's a gas station along the way so I get gas and finally get to the brewing store. Get what I need and cannot leave the same way I came in (which is 1.4 miles from the next place I need to go) because a large FedEx truck is in the way so again I had to take the long way around which was another 3 miles.

Survive all that which because of traffic from the accident added an additional 30 minutes to what should have taken 10 minutes of driving.

So now we go to Tops. My daughter is accosted by a very friendly Asian employee who wanted her to try some cheese spread which according to the child was not very good and finally we get our groceries, get in line and of course there's issues with the person before us, then the scale breaks.

Finally we go home. Headache from hell, but at least I got a Strawberry Kiwi Snapple and a Snickers bar.
