they should put that on the sign
April 19, 2010
As a man, in particular as a married man, sometimes I’m sent on dangerous assignments, missions if you will.
Saturday morning, I spent quite a while wandering the aisles at the unholy behemoth, Smith’s Marketplace (I was already down on that side of the hill, and with a mission like this, time is important–I’m not saying someone was timing me, I’m just saying I was trying to be quick), seeking my treasure.
I’ve talked before about the stupid aisle signage at Smiths. But this one is a doozy. In the end, I had to walk up to an otherwise innocent and unsuspecting stockboy and just blurt it out.
“Yo. I’m looking for Tampons. Probably Supers.”
Sure, I could have been a bit more genteel, and said “feminine hygiene products.”
But they could have written that on the sign, too, right?
