The Things You Overhear in a Grocery Store

SON
Can we get some of these bananas?

FATHER
No. . .they're Dole.

SON
But I want bananas.

FATHER
NO. They're Dole bananas.

SON
But we always get those bananas.

FATHER
No we don't.

SON
Why can't we get them?

FATHER
Cause they keep South America down.

Haaahahaha! Classic.

One time I was working in the bulk aisle and a guy on his cell phone says something like "I'm leaving pretty soon...I'm at HEB."

Even the stonedest among us know Wheatsville when they see it.

Also a good one overheard this week:

(from the ice cream freezer aisle)
Son: How 'bout this one?
Father: No no, that one's fat free. We want fat-full.

Love it. To underscore the W'ville difference (and vive la difference!) here's one I overheard while recently touring the newly opened Sprouts on Bee Caves.

Husband: I don't see 'em.
Wife: Me either.
Wife: Well, that's that. No Honey Nut Cheerios, no shopping in this store.
Husband; Well, it was worth a look.
