Dear old lady in the supermarket:

Even though I am not actually a supermarket employee, it would be my pleasure to help you reach the Kleenex on the top shelf. I will even read the tiny print on the coupon and help you figure out which boxes are included in the 2 for $2 promotion.

However, I would like to make clear that certain things are not my fault: I did not write the coupon to exclude the anti-viral tissues. I did not design the boxes that are too big for your nightstand. I did not prevent you from coming to the store until the last day of the sale by which point the Kleenex selection was pretty much picked over.

Even without a coupon, every other box of tissues in the store costs only a few cents more. I will happily buy you any 2 boxes of tissues in the store in exchange for the agreement that you will never again ask me for "help." Deal?

xoxo, ShallowGal
