What do you do for fun when you’re free? Binge Netflix? Hit the local mall for some window shopping with your friends? For humble queens Kris and Kylie Jenner, the idea of a “fun day out” includes doing “normal things” like grocery shopping, pumping their own gas and getting their car washed. Priorities, right?

In the seventh episode of The Kardashians, which premiered on 26 May 2022, the 66-year-old ‘momager’ and her then-pregnant daughter were seen driving around California when Kylie said, “I just want to do normal things with you. I just think when I’m pregnant, I just want to feel really normal.” Kris then admitted, “I have not been to a grocery store in two years,” to which her daughter added: “I haven’t been to a grocery store in forever. I want to go to the grocery store and pick my own things! It’s good for our souls.” We normies disagree, but I guess it’s the little things for the uber rich.

Off they went to Vintage Grocers in Malibu to have the time of their lives, with Kris admitting that “dreams do come true!” At this point, the momager revealed that she had stopped shopping for herself because of her fame. “One of the things that gets a little tricky is privacy,” she explained. “I stopped going to the grocery store because people in the store started sneaking pictures and paparazzi started showing up. It was hard.”

Although the mother-daughter duo proved to be just like the rest of us—piling their cart with cookie dough and tequila (Kendall’s 818 brand, of course)—the real fun (for us, at least) began when they had all their groceries bagged up and ready to be paid for.

“I just need the experience of checking out. I waited for this for years,” Kris said as she whipped out her card after asking her daughter if she wanted “to do the honours.” Kris then slid the card down the machine—only to be told that she needs to insert it with the magnetic chip facing forwards. Thankfully, Kylie showed her the ropes and the payment was made successfully. “We’re approved,” the momager with a net worth of around $190 million then went on to holler and tell the employees that they wanted to push the cart themselves. How little people of them.

Despite it being two years since the 66-year-old shopped for her own groceries, Kris still remembered to never leave the “basket” in the parking lot. “Okay, you have to go put the basket back, remember? Don’t be the customer that just leaves the basket in the middle of the parking lot,” she told Kylie. As the Kylie Cosmetics founder went to place the so-called basket back, her mother cheered: “Go, Kylie, go! Good job, Kylie, you’re doing amazing sweetie! Wow, look at her go. I knew you would shine.”

After the grocery store came the gas station, where the duo stopped to load up their car. At first, Kris was confused about how to position the vehicle at the station. “We’re totally on the wrong side, right?” she asked Kylie, who was driving. Kris then got out of the car but had trouble understanding how to insert her now-infamous card into the machine again. “What does it mean ‘2,000 points’?” she asked her daughter who remained in the vehicle to avoid the fumes during her pregnancy. Kylie then reminded her mother that the car needed to be turned off.

“We didn’t blow up, so that’s the good news,” Kris went on to admit. Once she finished pumping the gas, she struggled with inserting the pump back into the stand. “Just like riding a bike,” she laughed.

But their “normal day” didn’t stop there. Kris and Kylie then entered a drive-thru car wash at the gas station for what appeared to be the first time ever. “This is like Disneyland!” Kris exclaimed. “We have to bring the kids here… This is the best $12 we’ve ever spent!” Kylie replied, “This is fun. This is such a tourist attraction!”

As the mother-daughter duo had the best day of their lives, so did the internet. While some people called the family out for their privilege—just like with Kendall’s cucumbergate in an earlier episode of the show—others questioned if the scenes were staged to make up for a truly harrowing television experience. Either way, Kylie and her basket didn’t steal the internet’s thunder as netizens shined with their loot of memes and jokes on the public debacle:
