First, a few updates on the last couple posts I did.
I really hate explaining stuff that I post, but I had so many questions and misunderstandings in the comments section that I felt compelled to break it down for my less than gifted readers, or for those who skim posts, like Travis and Mooooog and Lilu.
On Olive Garden:
I am generally a very large tipper, IF the service is good. I have been told that I often leave too much. I just don’t like being told how much to leave.
The $57 bill was just for me, the wife, and our 3 munchkins; AND, it was a good deal only because my wife is better at saving money than I am. As proof, my meal alone was $16 of the total.
The entire party/group numbered around 30 people, but everybody paid their own bills. The gratuity thing was determined by Olive Garden for parties of 8 or larger.
On the masseuse:
I had an umbilical hernia in 2001. My innie became an outie. That’s why my abdomen was originally shaved and not the groin area.
Also, I really didn’t grow fur. (Geez people!) It was just a lot thicker there than anywhere else.
And yes, you CAN also get the Cochy shave lotion from those home parties.
You may have enjoyed my Trip To Victoria Secrets post.
So I give you…..
MORE ADVENTURES IN SHOPPING
Running to Kmart for some baby wipes should be pretty straightforward, right?
Go to the baby section. Spend 10 minutes scouring the diapers and pull-ups and swimmies. Scan the other 3 aisles.
HUH, guess K-mart doesn’t carry the complete baby pooping line.
Heading towards the front to leave, an associate asks me if I’ve found everything I was looking for.
Now, I’ve worked retail. I know store layout comes from corporate and not the associates.
But I noticed the person’s name tag says, “ASST Store Manager”, which not only explains why they bothered to ask if I needed help in the first place, BUT also means they may have some knowledge and input on store layout.
So I say, “Umm….Baby wipes?”
ASS Manager: “Oh. Those are up in the pharmacy section by the mouth wash.”
Me: “I see. Cause mouthwash makes A LOT more sense than by the diapers in the baby section. GEEZ!”
ASS Manager: *blink,blink*
Shopping tip #1
It is better to shop at an adult item store that has a big black guy who looks like Tone Loc behind the counter, then one that has a flaming homosexual that looks like a fat George Michael.
Unless you want anal lube or something of that sort.
Tone Loc will be very knowledgeable about pleasing the ladies and will ask things like, “Yo man. You really want to make your girl happy? Let me show you what they really like.”, while grabbing his knee to adjust his junk.
Fat George Michael will stand there looking all retentive and only offer to help when you near the section with the plugs and beads and lube. THEN, when you go up to pay for the Cochy brand shave lotion, will ask stuff like, “You know this is for shaving, right?!”, and then head-bob from side to side followed by two finger snaps.
