Break out the black knee socks. Lonely men now have a special day to call their own. A special shopping day, that is. Bass Lake Grocery and Deli Mart and Hardware has deemed Tuesday night “Lonely Middle-aged Man Night.” The special designation came about following several disruptions resulting in frightened children, according to produce stock boy Billy Tremble. “It got kinda creepy the other night,” Tremble said. “All these old men in shorts and street shoes clogged up the place. They had no idea where they were going or even what they were looking for.” Though no one was injured, several shoppers were delayed by the hapless men. They wandered the aisles looking  for Vitalis in the condiments section and canned beets on the canned tuna shelf, according to one patron who asked not to be identified. “I saw one old man stand in the same spot for nearly 45 seconds,” the shopper said. “He refused to ask for help and he wouldn’t move out of the way so I could get my tuna. He kept muttering something about beets.” Lonely Middle-aged Man Night begins on Tuesday, June 24 from 7-8 pm. Other shoppers are advised to pick some other time to get their groceries. Specials on 30-pack beer and hamburger helper will run each week. For more information ask someone.
