The Tie That Binds

"I believe that's the first time anyone's said that to me," I replied to the checker at the grocery today, as she bagged my items.

"What's that?" she said.

"'Would you like me to put a twist tie on your...garbanzos?'"

Ellipses mine. ;)

OfficeMax Maxxed Out

I needed some last minute supplies for a Sunday event, and was relieved to see the Emeryville OfficeMax listed their Saturday closing hour as 8 p.m. on their website. I pulled into their lot a little after 7. To my dismay, as I walked to the entrance, I saw an employee holding the door to let out the last customer. I checked the posted hours- Saturday close at 7 p.m. I sighed.

As I turned to walk away, I said, "Your website says you are open to 8 on Saturdays."

"Yeah, I know," said the employee flatly, without the slightest hint of apology.

Good game, OfficeMax. K thx cya bye.
