Hello My Little Secret Squirrels...................
So today I did a little shopping. I bought my prescription drugs as well as things I'll be needed like Efferdent for my night guard. Did I mention that I had to explain loudly to the man at Target what Efferdent was ? His English wasn't that good, but I finally found it. People were looking at me, but I didn't care.
Anyho, as I was waiting for my prescription to be filled, I saw this old man looking for Tucks pads. Except that he was almost blind and he needed help. Poor man, he asked these teenaged girls (the only girls in the aisle) to help him, but they weren't much of a help. He just needed help reading, but these little teenybopper bitches just kinda stared at him and I heard giggling. They didn't know how to respond, really. Another reason I am scared to breed, but I digress........
So I walked over and asked him what he was looking for so those teenyboppers could make their escape. I pointed out the items, and he said that his wife demands Tucks pads. Well, they were out and I offered Preparation H which I think is better anyway, and he said NO ! The wife wants Tucks ! And he wanted to know why he couldn't get Tucks pads and how did I know they weren't there. I explained as nicely as possible that because I can read, I can see that they are clearly out. But look ! Target has a brand which is cheaper, and carries just as much medicine in those pads as Tucks ! It even said on the box "Compare to Tucks" ! Voila !
Luckily that was good enough for him. He got what he needed, and I no longer had to stand around and have a loud conversation about hemorrhoid products. Besides, I needed to by denture cleaners !
His wife must not be better off, if she is sending her nearly blind husband to the store to make purchases.
I felt for that man. When I am in my eighties and my body has gone to shit, and I can barely see, I hope that a nice young man will help me locate my Depends.
