Everyone’s at the MCC Right Now, What Are You Doing on Facebook?


Like, seriously, now, who’s even reading this? It’s the middle of the day on Saturday, which means that absolutely everyone in Steinbach is at the MCC thrift store, which closes at 3. Good luck if you try to go there now, though, as the parking is a nightmare on Saturdays. You might be able to find a spot in the EMC church lot, but then you’d have to jay-walk across the street with all your purchases and that doesn’t sound very safe at all, now does it?

I suppose if you are on Facebook and not at the thrift store, there must be some good reason, but I’m hard pressed to come up with any plausible explanation for that kind of behaviour. Perhaps you’re leisurely enjoying your bowl of borscht with farmer sausage roll at MJ’s Kafe across the street, but you better wrap things up but fast.

Seriously, everyone’s at the MCC! Like, go outside right now and knock on your neighbour’s door. I’ll wait. Did you do it? See, they weren’t home, were they? Of course not, they were stocking up on bargains…as should you, by the way.

There’s a time and place for everything, including Facebook, but a Saturday in Steinbach in certainly not one of them. How else are you going to get your hands on those size 8 1/2 mary janes? You know that Mrs. Rempel always gets there early and she’s an 8 1/2, too, so you’re always just left with her rejects. Hopefully it’s not too late.

You better make haste, though, because they start to turn off the lights at 2:45.
