I think I have IBS, or something. Definitely have something, but I'm not sure what to make of it. Regardless, the symptoms of whatever I have? Delightful. Perfectly fucking wonderful. Especially during working hours. It's like a fucking party in my lower intestine. Which is fun, of course. Woo.
We went to Whole Foods yesterday to grab some fresh (previously frozen, of course) fish for a lomi lomi recipe that was in our recent Food Network magazine. I thought a particular slab of salmon looked really nice, so we asked the fish monger to cut us a pound of it, please. And Leo added that we'd like the skin removed. "Do you want me to weigh it before I remove the skin, or after?" he asked us. I walked away...that was too dumb of a question for me to be around on a hot Sunday in a crowded organic store. I heard Leo tell him that we'd prefer for it to be weighed without the skin, please. (You know, since we weren't buying the skin and everything. Really, fish monger? Really???)
Then Leo joined me, and we wandered through to the chip section to find some yummy, better-for-us-than-fried chips to go with the pico Leo planned on making when we got home, and then we were off to the checkout.
Leo had been carrying the fish around with him, and so when it went through the scanner, and I noticed it cost more than the $14 is was supposed to (it was $13.99 per pound), I was all, "Wait a minute...how much fish did that guy give us?" And the check out guy held it up so I could see that we had received 1.24 pounds of fucking fish instead of the 1 pound we asked for.
I mean, srsly? Is it that tough? I think it was a resounding argument for why that particular fish guy might want to Just Say No a bit more often, because those two glaring mistakes made on just one, simple order kind of scream "dying brain cells!!!" to me, dammit. (Leo thought that maybe he was responding to Leo's sarcasm in his response about the skin thing by fucking us over, but I told him he actually didn't sound sarcastic at all when he responded, and if that's what he was going for, then we need to work on it a bit more at home maybe. I think the guy was just an idiot. Pure and simple dumbassery at work.) Should Leo have checked the package before walking away from the fish counter? Yes...yes he should have. But I still lay the burden of blame on the guy who's JOB it is to give customers what they ask for. Without asking stupid questions as he does it. Jeezy effing chreezy...
