We have all seen it...each time frowning in quiet frustration. I saw it again today. I decided to make a tomato-cucumber salad to go with chicken breast I am going to grill, but I didn't have any red onions, or for that matter cucumbers either. I am standing in the "fast lane" looking at what this women and daughter in front of me were buying. A quick inventory and I summed up the following: 4 -12 packs of soda pop. 2 - packages of bologna. 1 giant bag of cheese-ball puffs. 1 giant bag of cheese popcorn. 1 loaf of bread. 2 - 1 litre cold coke bottles (guess they can't wait till they get home..need it now) Annnnd...3 packs of cigarettes. She mentioned to the clerk to ring up the cigarettes separately. The clerk didn't blink an eye. Then I understood why - she paid for the junk food and pop with a food stamp card, and the f*cking cigarettes with cash. Yet another example of wasted taxpayer money. Man that pisses me off.
