Do you get a discount at the shop next door?

Kinda like how nearly every GNC Nutrition is next door to a Cigarettes 4 Less.

The novel "Novel: A Novel" by George Singleton has a pretty funny take on this sort of thing; a husband and wife start up a rather unconventional weight-loss spa in a small town which works so well that it starts to attract more business to the area. Including an extremely good bakery which moves in across the street.

Neither of these emporia seems very popular.

All the picture needs is some tumbleweed!

Here's a picture I took of the exact opposite situation. Donuts Police

In my town, there is a Curves (women's exercise) next door to a Chinese restaurant. Actually, in the area, it seems that there is always a Chinese restaurant within viewing distance of a Curves. Looks like a conspiracy.

This is a fairly common occurrence, as both of these types of places tend to be in strip malls. I guess you could think of it as a test. ;-)

That's funny, but it is not broken, not in the sense that this column is all about.

gmangw, grant => lmao.

One guy told me his secret to weight control was to skip a meal a day.

I told him that's nothing, I can skip five meals a day.

That's not broken, you get dessert, and work it off, or vice versa.

Not broken, but funny nevertheless.

Bad Cop! No donut!

Dilemma: work out or ice cream? ice cream or work out?

Solution: beer helmet with ice cream smoothie on one side and Red Bull on the other while taking a spinning class.

Heh. There just happens to be an almost exact same situation in my area too. There's an ice cream shop right nextdoor to a Weight Watchers.

The choice is yours, go on a diet, or get some ice cream :)

I have seen about a million pictures like that.

Y'know what's really broken here ... posting two almost identical pictures and formatting the text as though the second picture added something that the first one didn't have.

i'm sorry earthman, but that crosses the line from funny to totally anal

Posted by: knowitall at March 29, 2006 05:39 PM

I saw something like that, but it was a DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) next to a liquer store.

There was a Weight Watchers storefront next to a Cake Bakery shop in Chattanooga, TN a few years ago.
