Oak Park, IL related: Meijer leaving the area

Now a closing that I am upset about is the Meijer in Melrose Park, just because I do not like to go to the Walmart in Forest Park, Il (it’s fucking ghetto) or the Jewel on Roosevelt (it’s expensive) this store was a welcomed gem in this oasis of pretentiousness. Pete’s is alright but very expensive as well and the aisles are small to the point I am breathing or tasting everyone else’s breath.

The stores that are left do not step up their game and have not felt the reason to do so. Now that Meijer is leaving the area even though it is two suburbs over is was a fantastic alternative to these sloppy expensive stores in Oak Park, Il and in the nearby suburbs. God I will miss their well-lit parking lots that had clientele I was not worried would assault me in some way after shopping for groceries. That is alright I got mace, I will wear my sneakers so that I am ready for giving out some ghetto hoe beat downs.

Here is the article spelling out that bad fucking news:

Oak Park, IL makes one’s soul hurt.

So on Saturday I was with Sarah (the one who stepped in dog shit in a different blog post) and I wanted to take her to Q-BBQ in downtown Oak Park, IL near Lake and Harlem for her birthday. But She lamented because of the traffic, the tight area and how people are generally ignorant about stepping up upon you and in your face. She stated that: “Going through Oak park, makes my soul hurt…”

I literally laughed my at least 3 minutes. It was the funniest line I ever heard about or to describe Oak Park, IL. Anyway, we grabbed some Chinese food on the outskirts of Oak Park, IL in Berwyn, IL instead, I rather see my dollars go to an area that does something for their residents instead of trying to strong-arm them and their tax dollars to pay for some stupid shit (aka the pool).

Yes Ha! Going through Oak Park, IL or even thinking about it makes my soul hurt too, Sarah, yeah me too.
