A boring looking mini-van, station wagon or SUV used mostly
to acquire groceries for the household to transport kids around town. Usually
vehicle is driven, unfortunatley, by a pill-popping soccer mom and/or bored housewife in a loveless marriage. Grocery-getter vehicles
are generally not very sexy looking and are selected for their practical utility like transporting spoiled kids, various equipment
and groceries of course.
"Her husband bought
her a real grocery-getter didn't he?"
"What is up with Anne-Marie? She was zipping
around in her grocery-getter all jacked up on something
this morning... nearly
ran me over, dammit!"
Used car sales guy: So we have a nice
selection of mini-vans and station wagons over here
you might like in your price range.
Woman: Those are alright I guess. Ooh, I like that silver
Toyota Sienna! Can I test drive it?
Guy: Sure...a more fancy grocery-getter if you will.
Woman: Uh, yeah
(rolls eyes and sighs). You know
I'm not a mom and I'm not married Mr. um...
Guy: Just call me Larry.
Woman: Right. On this test drive try not to talk. You already put your foot in your mouth as it is.
