Why I love the Epic Late-Night Grocery Run
Tonight there was a feisty old broad in front of me complaining roundly about the use of customer discount cards at grocery stores. "I hate these things," she muttered loudly as the clerk rang up her items. "Why can't the store just give us all the same discount without having to use one of these stupid things? But no, they have to track us. See what groceries we're buying. It's all about numbers. Social Security number, bank number, PIN number, member number... they're turning everyone into numbers!"
"Twenty-three ninety-seven," said the clerk.
Hey, I thought it was funny.
