“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Yesterday, at the pet store ...
Friday, December 3, 2010

...I went to check out with two bags of cat food, and the young clerk says, "Now, your receipt's gonna say that you bought a dozen crickets, but don't pay any attention to that."

"Pardon me?"

"Something happened with the computer, and every time we ring someone up it adds a dozen crickets to their bill. ... But don't worry, we subtract it from the total. You're not really gonna pay for them."

"So my receipt will say that I bought a dozen crickets?"

"Yes, sir, it sure does."


Usually, the receipts get shoved into my jeans pocket and transformed into a ball of pulp in the washing machine. But this one I'm saving.
