This picture reminds me of that one time I was at Harris Teeter and they had a bunch of wine - like a whole cart piled to the ceiling - with light from heaven shining on it (it was on sale) by the checkout line. It was like it was just waiting for me.
Thank you grilled cheesus.
I took a quick gander at the yellow sticker price and could barely believe my own eyes: $2.74! $2.29$ $3.76! $1.75!!!!!
So, I did what any normal person would do and grabbed 17 (or was it 18?) different bottles.
Finally! I’ll be the kind of fancy person that actually has wine in my wine rack!
So, then I get to the check out line and am secretly very pleased with myself for stumbling upon this great sale before anyone else. I’m a winner I thought! Everyone else loses! mwahaha!
Wait. What’s that? What’s that you say checkout lady? My bill is $400 and some change. There must be some mistake, you see, these wines are all on sale.
Oh. I see. The yellow ticket is the discount off the original price and not the actual sale price. Why yes, now that you mention it, I see that “DISCOUNT OFF ORIGINAL PRICE” is indeed written there plain as day in big black letters above the yellow sticker.
Well, in that case I’ll just have these two bottles here and if you could be so kind as to remove the rest from my bill I’d really appreciate it. K. Thx.
