With two kids, and school being out for the summer, the milk budget in my house just doubled. This means frequent trips to the store, often unexpected, usually late at night.
Gotta make sure those cereal bowls are full in the morning, after all.
This past weekend I found myself in that situation. A 10 pm glance into the fridge revealed that the milk had somehow reached an alarmingly low level. A few minutes later I’m at the store, two gallons in hand, checking out.
Using the self checkout station, I paid. Then I watched my receipt print out.
I kept watching. It kept coming. It continued printing for what felt like 30 seconds.
