But strangely enough "Piggly Wiggly" isn't an embarrassing name for a grocery store.

In Charleston SC there is (was?) a street called Piggly Wiggly Way

You mean it wasn't the potholes that made him buy a Dodge? Imagine that.

Cute that you think gas tax is earmarked only for road maintenance.

I bought a subcompact Ford Fiesta this summer, downsizing because used car prices were jacked up.

Now I feel I lucked into it, it's a manual and hoot to drive. Except it seems to enrage tiny dick pickup drivers. I get tailgated by them often, and when I move over they seem to floor it to show how powerful and loud they can be, as if I gave a shiat.

I didn't realize coal rolling was a thing in the real world, but a couple of them have passed me and belched out a cloud of smoke.

My driving habits have not changed, but this only started happening with the Fiesta.

I used to shop at one in Georgia. I loved it! Good prices, excellent meat and fresh local produce. One year I bought a dozen Piggly Wiggly t-shirts, and brought them out to California as Christmas gifts. They were a big hit.

My only experience is seeing a truck featured in "Close Encounters."

You don't? Turtlebees is all over the Bay Area.

Gee, if only there was someway to pay for things...

Like maybe the government asked citizens for a little bit of money to fix things.

Eh, crazy pipe dream.  Will never happen.  Oh well.

Piggly Wiggly was the FIRST self service grocery store, first one opened in Memphis in 1916.  Later became the first with checkout stands, first with prices marked on every item, and the first shopping carts.

I'm guessing they were bought out, probably by Thriftway or Kroger.

Even 25 years ago I didn't see any in Seattle.

Not the thing West Virginia should be most embarrassed about, but OK. (shrug)

"This truck right here has actually broke down plenty of times from just two potholes in this city alone," he said.

First of all, I have never heard of a vehicle breaking down because of potholes. But maybe I define "broke down" more narrowly than most. So with that said, if your truck cannot handle potholes it isn't a truck.

Any historical info on why they chose such a weird name?

This just in: Roads last much longer if you stop driving trucks all over them (especially coal trucks).

They have done that. What happened to that money? What happened last time they said "we raised taxes to fix the roads". All I know is that some roads I dont drive on, got fixed, but this road that I do use ought to be considered gravel. 'Cause it sure as hell ain't pavement.

All the great regional grocery chains across the country and this is your list? As a retired grocery executive let me help.

MN/WI: Cub Foods
Southern WI and the parts of IL with people: Jewel Osco
Iowa and surrounding states: HyVee
Florida: Publix and what's left of Winn Dixie
Virginia, NC, SC: Food Lion
New England States: Hannaford
California: Safeway
Idaho: Albertsons
Almost everywhere else: Whatever local chain Kroger bought (Fry's in AZ, Dillon's in KS, King Soopers in CO etc...).

Just don't go Piggly Wiggly all over the Hoggly Woggly.

Something my grandma used to say, as far back as the 80s.

And yes, she was from SC. Charleston Low Country.

West Virginia is the only state that has tolls on I-77.
Guess which state has the crappiest, most pot holed sections of I-77.

Go ahead. Take a wild ass guess.

The first to implement a self-service system was Clarence Saunders's Piggly Wiggly chain in 1916.  At one point in time they were a market leader.

That's the condition of around 90% of the roads south of Buffalo, west of Philadelphia, north of the Virginia state line and east of Columbus, Ohio.

If you need a huge flag on your truck to announce that you are American, the odds are high that you're not a good one.
