I'm at the grocery store, grabbing some milk and some smokes (don't judge me.  Oh yeah?  FU.)

Its 8am and empty with one clerk the registers.  I grab my milk and head to the register and immediately I knew this wasn't going to go well.  Young 20 something sighs as she sees me and puts down her phone.  I ask for the smokes and she tells me "I gone gotta go over there" and points to the service desk about 20 feet away.  Not wanting to have to make two separate transactions, and resisting the urge to Parrot her language back I tell her I want to ring it up here.  In similar language she says that is not company policy, whereupon I tell her that's how its worked two days ago, and how its worked for the last 15 years.  So she picks up the phone to ring the person over at that service counter, presumably to have them deliver the cigs.  Since no one is actually over at the service desk, unsurprisingly she doesn't get an answer.  She looks perfectly content waiting on the phone to be picked up and goes back to her phone, where I then suggest she goes over there, gets them and bring it back.  More lip.  At that point the manager pops out and asks what's going on, probably knowing the lay of the land, tells her to get off her lazy ass and go get them.  He goes back into his office.

As I'm walking out the store I pass by the emergency exit that reads "alarm will sound if used" and then decide to test it out.  These things don't test themselves.  CAN'T YOU READ?!?!  Why, yes.  Yes I can!

  For the same reason men visit shores, they pay so they don't have to talk to them.

So did the exit alarm sound?

Was it whole milk or fat free? My reply depends on knowing that.

  Fairlife Whole.  It's yummy stuff.  It's expiration date is usually at least two months away from date of purchase.  It lasts at least two weeks after you open it.

Richard Petty was going to come out of retirement and show the whippersnappers a thing or two about racing.

  Cigarettes? Whole milk? Throw in a glazed donut with that and you have the trifecta of healthy living.
