That’s Some Good Coffee!!!

Get out some red coffee cups friends!  We’ve got some fine coffee around here.  🙂

A few weeks ago, Don went to the grocery store to pick up a few things and they had a good buy on his favorite coffee—Community New Orleans Blend.  It was such a good buy that he bought 2#.

He brews that stuff so strong that I swear it has legs and can walk around the kitchen unassisted.  Seriously—after he gets his coffee, I put another cup and half of water through to get coffee I can drink—and it still takes a ton of cream.

I call it Industrial Paint Remover.  No kidding.

Anyway—he paid for his purchases and got to the car—not having really paid attention when he forked over the money.  Take a look at this receipt and tell me if you see something wrong:


The good thing is that he did realize he had paid way too much—about $100 too much.  I won’t name the store because it was a mistake.  The computer had been programmed incorrectly.  They apologized profusely—again and again and again and of course refunded the excess money.

The point here is that we should always glance over our receipts before we leave a store to make sure we’ve paid the correct amount and especially if we think we paid too much.

  1. Hey, Sheryl! I don’t know how on earth I’ve been missing on your blog! It’s been a while since I’ve heard from you, but now that I’ve found you, I’ll be following you! As I write this I am sitting here sipping my favorite Colombian blend of coffee. Tell Don mine has legs, too! LOL

    Ha! Must have been the gourmet blend. I try to keep a rough running total as I shop, especially since they day they charged me $39.99 for one pound of bologna.

      Lol. That’s high dollar bologna! I would have known immediately it wasn’t right and I wouldn’t have the extra $100 to start with. 🙂
