I do remember during my brief (nine months? that’s brief, right?) stint of unemployment, I went shopping during the day, thinking I’d have the stores to myself and the occasional SAHM. Nope, me and the local retired communities. Of course, that was in California in 1990/1991.

Since we have a LOT of retired communities in south central PA (no state income tax on retirement income!) maybe the folks we see on Saturday are the ones who couldn’t get out during the week? Dunno. Makes no sense to me, either, Charlotte.
