Default Who you gonna believe the book or your eyes

This has nothing to do with routing -- but thought anyone who finds themselves from time to time patronizing their local big blue box might find it humorous.

I was in one Saturday picking up some concrete mix.
I walked in the big loading dock door to the register just inside and nicely told the lady there that I needed 6 of the 50# bags of Quikrete.
She very nicely told me I must mean 60# - that it didnt come in 50.
I told her no -- I meant the 50# bags of regular Quikrete.

She politely pulled out her little register book to show me that they only had 40, 60 and 80# bags and which did I want.

I smiled and said, No maam, I want 6 of those 50# bags behind you there - as I pointed through the wide open door at a 6' high stack of bags two pallets wide sitting about 15' away with a big black and white sign --
50# Quikrete $1.98.

Hi Cowboy

That's funny maybe your come back should have been didn't I see you b/4 working at McD's the place I don't eat at anymore because they just can't get it right the 1st. or the 2nd or the 3rd.time ,,,they get lost if it's over 10 dollars or ten items then go to BBB to get a higher paying job. It's sad but that's just the way it is...to bad they have to where shoes... 10 more would help maybe....
