I have no clue how this happened

by Jeff Hilimire on July 16, 2010

So we were grocery shopping the other day and my wife was looking for a card for someone for something (I’m not privy to such details…actually, I just forget such details).  She picked up a particular card and it was completely signed, by tons of people.

I can’t for the life of me come up with a scenario that would explain how exactly that happened.  Anyone have a scenario that might be somewhat plausible?

    Here's my theory: Someone received this card and they liked it so much that they wanted to find the same card to give to someone else. Thus, they brought the card into the store with them and left it by accident.

    While Josh has a clever theory, upon opening the picture up a little more and reading the comments….someone signed their name and then put (Produce) underneath it. My theory is that someone at the grocery store had a death in the family and they had everyone sign it – and there was a mix-up and it ended up on the shelf instead of to the employee.

    Dang that's a pretty good analysis, you might have broken the code! I missed that “produce” part…

    Maybe the recipient of the card works in the grocery store as a stocker in the cards and gift wrap area. This person suffered a loss, so the other grocery store employees got together and signed the card. The employee … i just read the other comments and Amy got it, lol.

    Perhaps you've found a prototype from the secret labs of Hallmark. It's their latest creation: the Pre-Sympathized Sympathy Card. These will be introduced in late 2010 as part of an extensive line of Emo-Loaded© greeting cards. In February of 2011, the PSS™ will be joined by love notes pre-stained with your choice of lipsticks (or already dosed in a range of perfumes or colognes), a series just in time for Valentine's Day called Borrowed Love™.
