I Probably Shouldn't Have Access To A Debit Card

Last week I had to train a bunch of people at work, therefore I had to make a trillion copies and assemble packets. I gave myself a 15 minute window to complete this task. Surprise! I was the only person in the office and the copy machine was out of toner. I couldn't tell you where extra toner was, and highly doubt that we even had a backup. I booked it to Kinko's and made the copies just in time. For the low price of $45.53. I'm almost afraid to submit the receipt for reimbursement.

Later that day I went to the grocery store and noticed that they had manchego cheese, which I'd been wanting to try. I couldn't find a price, and didn't think it would cost that much. When I got home and looked at the receipt, I saw that it cost $7.83 for a 4 oz. piece. I don't normally spend that kind of money on cheese, being lactose intolerant and all. The worst part is that it's so delicious and I can't wait to buy some more. Only 57% of the calories come from fat, so I don't see why I shouldn't.

The same thing happened to me with some Washington state cherries a couple of weeks ago. Hey, publix said they were on sale, so I grabbed a pack. Um, I ended up paying 8.00 for a little thing of cherries. I nearly died! I don't even like cherries!

THe receipt said the price was $2.99/lb OFF the normal price! Holy shit! When did cherries get so expensive?

Stupid Publix. I tried to buy a crenshaw melon a few weeks ago and thought it was .99. Turns out it was .99 a lb. It rang up at $8.81! Luckily I caught it in time and had her take it off. Now the sign says .99, and someone has handwritten in "a pound." Makes me feel like I wasn't the only one who made that mistake.

c.- I could have fed-exd you some WA state cherries for that price!

cl- The grocery stores around here are pulling the same shit with the sign trickery. You literally have to watch everything as it rings up.

Hey, if you think that's bad...I bought a little block of fresh mozzarella cheese a few weeks back for over $9 -- when I got home and took a bite, I discovered it was bad. And yeah, I was pregnant at the time. Fuckers.
