I might even call it catastrophic!
I get the flyer from Costco saying that they once again have the Heathy Choice Fudge Pops that Debby and I both enjoy.
Saying “enjoy” is meaningless. I should have said NEED.
I can’t tell you how happy that made me. You see they were out of them last time I was there.
I know, I know there are bigger problems in the world yadda yadda yadda . I can’t think of any right now but I’m sure there are some.
Back to my tragedy.
As you all know I rarely leave my house except for emergencies.
So I’m on line , in my mask and gloves naturally, with a few non essentials, batteries for my iron lung, socks and the 4 boxes of pops that I have secured.
When to my horror the check out guy removes THREE of my four boxes from my cart and he says, as if he was just passing the time of day,
“Only one to a customer”
When I got up from the floor, I’m light as a feather since I’ve been out of my favorite dessert for months, so only two rather small gentlemen helped to pick me up.
I think I’ll cut to the chase. No amount of pleading helped. I even limped over to the manager to make my case to no avail.
I know I should have thrown the iron lung batteries and the socks on the floor and stomped out but I really need socks.
Just to prove how wronged I was when I relayed th story to my friend David, who is without doubt the worst person in the world, he was shocked.
“There’s a limit on fudge pops due to the pandemic (oh yeah that’s one of the problems that I couldn’t remember before)??? It’s not like it’s masks or disinfection wipes, Pops???”
I believe I have made my case.
I’m quite sure that anyone who knows me even on Facebook or Twitter will boycott Costco until they change their draconian rules.
But for now I give you… Zen.
