Shameless...

... I'm sure you're all familiar of the practice of "Captive Suggestion", which is to say, forcing someone to experience ONE thing in order to get ANOTHER.  Point in case: the one thing that, statistically, the most people go to the grocery store to get most frequently is milk.  Thus, they put the milk as far away from the grocery store doors as possible, so that you must walk through each and every department to get there, and thus buy stuff you had not originally planned on buying.

At the new Save-On, though, it's shameless.  It's actually TUCKED into a little alcove at the back, between Bulk Foods and Coffee Creamers, with a little low ceiling, so it's like you have to LEAVE the grocery store, and ENTER the Milk Department.  It's remarkable in it's total lack of subtlety.  On the plus side, it did let me get two awesome cards for Throkky... one I gave to her last night, and the other I'm saving for the right time.  I'll ask Throkky to scan it in so I can share the disturbing sentiments of love.

Ok, back to work!

Awww, I knew it. You're just a gooey centred man.

And I know what you mean. Walking in to my Save-On, it's almost like they don't sell milk at all. You have to go hunt it down.

Leave my precious centre of goo out of this!
