Toussaints et Leclerc - The Perfect Storm

We made the grand mistake of going grocery shopping this morning - Toussaints (All Saints Day) at Leclerc.  Either it was due to everyone returning from vacation and needing groceries before tomorrow's back to work day or it was that Leclerc offered a coupon of 15 euros off every 80 euros purchased or all of the above.  Everyone had their carts loaded full!  It took us 40 minutes to get through the line to the cashier!!  Of course we not being anally frugal French people left our coupon in the other car.  The cashier asked us for our coupon and when I explained our predicament, she offered a sympathetic shake of her head.  That was a painful experience all around!
