Of course, despite eleven shopping trips averaging $500 each, we forgot a couple of things necessary for Thanksgiving dinner. So back I went to the store down the road that stays open all through the holidays.
I noticed the deli counter was closed. A small note taped to the case listed the holiday hours, and added a postscript:
“Sorry, we cannot take accept any returns on turkeys.”
I would have paid real money to be around to see the scenario prompting this note.
