Weird mutant cooties, or something

How is it that these people claim the right to have first crack, so to speak, at Presidential politics?

As though we needed another reason to abandon ethanol as a motor fuel.

    Without knowing more detail about the story (guy involved could just be someone with very weird OCD), I can’t make the judgement I think he’s wanting us to make.

    I will say if that happened to me I’d be slightly tempted to throw packages of sanitary napkins at the guy until I scored a hit.

    (I also find myself thinking: this may be another argument in favor of getting my “lady’s products” through Amazon or similar mail-order source)

    I am quite easily mortified under these conditions, which is why the one time my mom sent me after the product, she specified brand name, size, price, and approximate location on store shelves. This way I didn’t even have to know what it was I was buying, only that there was a big box of it.

    I will confess to having traveled some distance to buy them, lest I find one of my students was the checkout clerk at the store. (Though even Sherman isn’t safe, a lot of my students live there).

    There’s a horrible old joke about a husband, son, or brother sent to get Tampax and the clerk mishears him as asking for thumbtacks….

    I make wife-unit write down exactly what she wants, all parameters, then I just go do it.

    One of the problems is that either the manufacturers regularly change the things up, or the stores change what they stock. I find a kind I like and then I can’t get it again when I need more, so I’m back to trying to figure it out.

    I tend to be VERY picky and I also have some, let’s just say, sensitivity issues, that makes it more complex.
