winter woolies

Posted in: General

This one comes courtesy of my office mate – Trish.
An inveterate bargain shopper, Trish spied a long sleeved, polar fleece, zip fronted top on sale at a certain department store. Just perfect for keeping out the winter chills. And under $20. A bargain indeed.
She pounced.
While waiting at the checkout she noticed the said item was scanned through as ‘Lady’s G-string: $4.95’. Most unexpected.
The clearly bored, disinterested (and apparently ill-informed regarding the usual elements – or lack thereof – composing a “Lady’s G-string”) lad on the scanner duly requested $4.95.
Trish handed him $5.00. Received $0.05 change and a plastic shopping bag containing the incognito ‘G’. Contract completed. Everyone happy.
And Trish is both warmly and comfortably dressed for what remains of winter!

    I guess a polar fleece top would be better winter weather wear than a polar fleece g!

    I can never bring myself to let these things go, although this sort of thing has happened to me before. My Calvinist upbringing intervenes with visions of hellfire, should I just take the serendipitous chance and run. But I admire those who can simply shut up and walk out with the extra cash!
