5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read I couldn't put it down! 3 Jun 2008
By Mark T. Haley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I just loved this book. It is hilariously funny. I could not put it down; I wanted to know what was going to happen next or who was going to do what. If you want a good laugh and some insight into other peoples lives this is the book for you. I bought ten; it is going to make a great gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shocking Reality 23 Oct 2008
By Eunice E. Mueller - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
What a GREAT book! It's an easy read that's hard to put down. Makes you re-think what you blabber about to your check-out person. You just never know when that person will make notes about your personal quirks and write a book about it. Why will we tell strangers things that we won't tell even our best friends?
I LOVED Ms. Erhart's "straight-on" approach to life's everyday trials. She certainly found humor in them. She tells life like it is--through other people's eyes. I laughed. I cried. I certainly can relate. Just a really fun book to read, PLUS the recipes at the end are an added bonus. Can't wait for her next book to "hit the shelves".
4.0 out of 5 stars Humor and then some 20 May 2013
By J. R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ms. Erhart's story reminds us that when we make generalizations and judgments, it is we who are poorer for it. Some folks may have a tendency to think of checkout clerks as mindless automatons, but Ms. Erhart is rich in experience, powers of observation, compassion, humor and her mind is always working.

Bobbi Erhart's story is not simply a humorous tale of grocery carts, customers and baggers. Many events on her life's journey would fell lesser women. But Ms. Erhart, like the mountains she loves, is always rising up. If you check the word "resilient" in the dictionary, you'll see Ms.Erhart's name. From her childhood in Michigan's wild and wooly upper peninsula to her later life in the Rocky mountains, the vagaries of nature play out in her outer and inner environments.

When she finds herself employed as a grocery store clerk, she sees that the checkout lane is really a microcosm of the larger society. Her customers run the gamut between the dualities of young and old, rich and poor, educated and illiterate, healthy and ill, happy and sad. Her insights and humor will reveal and delight, but her book doesn't end at the checkout lane.

For those of you who are Florida transplants, her story of moving from the mountains to the flatlands will ring true and have you nodding your head in agreement.

You can certainly read this book for enjoyment, but you may also be tempted to be a little more friendly to the checkout clerk at your grocery store. Who knows, you may end up in a book someday.

Wow, Bobby you hit the nail on the head. I do believe some of your characters visit our store, what an insight this book would have made if I had only read before I started working in a grocery store!

This was the most amusing book I've read since Erma Bombeck !!!!! I could not stop laughing, nor put the book down. It was certainly entertaining and funny. I hope Bobbi publishes another book soon. Would highly recommend for anyone to purchase this good book for themselves or for a gift.
