Last night I was bopping around Kroger and saw this dumb thing:

Gelatin is on the big aisle marker sign thingy twice. I'm not totally sure why, but this tickled me like you wouldn't believe. I had a hard giggle - and it was much needed. But, now that I've slept on it, here are my questions:

Is this a mistake? If yes, how long has it been like this?

Once you get up on a ladder to change it, and the sign is giant and in your face, how does it still happen?

If  it's not a mistake, do they sell enough "gelatin" to need double signage?

Who even says "gelatin" anymore? 
What other sort of  "gelatin" exists besides "Jell-o" and what would you need it for?

Also, this is clearly the "baking needs" aisle...bread crumbs? Is there a need for that to be called out?

Anyway, I chuckled about the whole gelatingelatin thing for most of the evening. Sometimes it's the little things in life. There's nothing I enjoy more than incompetent signage.

Also, go check this out:

  1. Hahaha I think the fact that Bread Crumbs is up there is even funnier than GelatinGelatin!!

  2. I was thinking it was pretty funny to have marshmallows..and now that I'm thinking about it, I'm pretty sure there are more than 6 things down that isle, so who gets to pick what goes up on the signage?

  3. Too funny! I do like the Marshmallow's sign...I have looked all over for thos things before but Gelatin twice...weird. I wonder who decides what goes on the sign??

  4. Uhhh yeah I get super annoyed when I am looking for something in the grocery store and all I can find are way too specific signs of stuff I DON'T WANT. Totally agree with you on this. Whoever labeled the aisles in this store needs to get a lesson in what people actually care about.


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
