Too bad the turkey didn’t fit, you own it.

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.
